Seriously, if this isn’t the simplest fudge you have ever encountered, I don’t know how I can help you.
This one recipe inspired me to think about starting up a new section of this blog, called Kitchen Easy.
Get it? It rhymes and it sounds like Kitchen Cici! Oh come on, don’t be stingy with your applause.
Anyway, fudge: the characteristic aroma, the silky smoothness, and the perfect 50-50 balance of sugar and guilt. It’s one of my favorite chocolate delectables.
But see, the problem is that fudge is often overcomplicated: you’ll find various recipes calling for magical ingredients such as marshmallow creme, this thing called evaporated milk, a probably illegal dose of corn syrup, and a significant and scary amount of butter, leading you to wonder how this will affect your heart, your health, and your life, and making you wonder what other questionable choices you’ve made.
That’s a dangerous road on a slippery slope. Let’s not descend to the lair of midnight snacks and guilty pleasures.
Instead, let’s sit here with this fudge recipe in one hand and a ready spoon in the other.
Two-Ingredient Microwave Fudge
An easy fudge recipe. Super super easy. The definition of easy. Basically the easiest recipe ever.
14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
12oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts (optional)
1. Pour all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl.
2. Microwave until the chips melt, about 1 minute. Stir until smooth.
3. Set in fridge. After about 2 hours of solidifying, take out and cut into the geometric shape of your choice.
Alternatively, skip the last step. Save time and energy by using an acceptable eating utensil and eating the entire thing by yourself.
Everyone has guilty pleasures. Mine happens to involve chocolate.
