Quick and easy homemade style fudge using chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. So simple to make.



3 packages Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (6oz each)
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (14oz)
Dash of Salt
1 cup Nuts, chopped
11/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract


Line a 8 or 9 inch square pan with parchment paper.
Place heavy saucepan over low heat on stove top.
Add the chocolate chips.
Add the sweetened condensed Milk.
Add dash of salt.
Stir often until chips are fully melted. About 8-10 minutes.
Remove pot from heat.
Add chopped nuts.
Add vanilla extract.
Fold together until fully combined.
Spoon mixture into pan. Spread evenly.
Garnish with a few chopped nuts and chocolate chips.
Chill 2 hours or until firm and set.
Turn fudge onto cutting board. Remove parchment paper.
Cut into squares.
Store leftovers in the fridge for best results.


The nuts are optional, but sure do add a lot to the fudge if you can use them.
