I needed 4 dozen of something for a Cookie Swap and found this Fudge recipe, which turned out to be Amazingly Easy and So Delicious, especially when I used the microwave instead of a double boiler! When I cut it into manageable size pieces (about 1/2" cubes), it made over 6 dozen, so it is definitely a KEEPER!

Super-Easy Chocolate Fudge http://southernfood.about.com/od/fudgerecipes/r/r71221c.htm
By Diana Rattray, About.com
This easy chocolate fudge is a snap to make with sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and a little butter. If you use the microwave to heat the mixture, be sure to stir it frequently until the chocolate has melted completely and the mixture is well blended.
Ingredients:
   1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
   2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
   1 cup milk chocolate chips (6 ounces)
   2 tablespoons butter
   1 teaspoon vanilla
   1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional

Lightly grease a 9-inch square pan; line with a piece of plastic wrap about 18 to 24 inches in length, leaving the ends out to cover the finished fudge. The ends will also serve as "handles" which will help you lift the fudge out of the pan.
Heat the condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts, if using; pour into the prepared pan. Spread gently then cover lightly with the ends of the plastic wrap. Chill until firm. Lift out of the pan and cut into small squares.

I couldn't find my 9" square pan so I used 2 bread loaf pans: this is one of the loaves.






This recipe is the real deal! So good, and so easy!

That was part of the amazingness of it all. I already had everything needed to make the recipe! ........Except for the square pan...but, you know, considering the thickness of the hot mixture, I don't believe you need a pan at all, just spread it out in an even thickness on a sheet of plastic wrap on a cutting board and let it cool..... Voila!

Thanks for sharing the recipe!  I found some really cute Christmas tins at the dollar store and was trying to figure out something to put in them!  I could line the tins with some wax paper and fill them with fudge!  I think it'd be a nice hostess gift.  Thanks again!

I love this fudge and have made it for years. I make a variation on it, though. Use all milk chocolate chips, and use slmond extract instead of vanilla. Yum!

I was wondering if almond extract would make a difference! Looks like I may be making another batch!

We make this recipe during the holidays. It is delicious!!! We use a full tsp. of peppermint extract & 1 box of 12 candy canes crushed is the perfect amount. Smiley Smiley

Oh, yes! This would be a great gift....

Or you could make the chocolate-cherry gift mice... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69486.0

but the fudge, of course, is a bit less time consuming....
And a LOT less FRAGILE!
