Here are the ingredients you need:

Chocolate Chips – You can use milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. If you like your fudge sweet, use milk chocolate. If you prefer a less-sweet fudge, use semi-sweet.

Butter –If you have been here before you know I always use real butter. If you only have margarine, it will work for this recipe. 

Condensed Milk – You will want to use sweetened condensed milk for this recipe.

Nuts – You can use walnuts or pecans for this recipe. Or for nutless fudge, omit the nuts completely.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • You can save time by mixing ingredients in the microwave on medium heat. It will take about 3-5 minutes, but you will need to break up the time and stir a couple of times while it melts.
  • Double the recipe and add a second flavor to the second batch. Or use the second batch to gift to friends and family!
