I make this fudge every Christmas. It's so easy! It's fun to try different variations too. My husband created his own variation this year based on his favorite candy bar (Cadbury Fruit and Nut). If you've never made fudge you should try it this year!
Foolproof Chocolate Fudge
3 cups (18 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
1. Line 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan.
2. Melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt in heavy saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
3. Chill 2 hours or until firm. Remove from pan by lifting edges of foil. Cut into squares.
