Now with fudge week, I had to include a classic chocolate version. This super easy chocolate fudge is another one that is so simple and basically foolproof! The key to this is to cook over low heat until well melted and combined.
For the chocolate, you use good old chips. However, you want a combo of chocolate. I did 2 parts semi sweet and one part milk chocolate. It was the perfect chocolate level for me. You can do any combo you want, especially with the variety of chips out there – mint chips, butterscotch chips, dark chocolte, etc. Just think of the combinations.
You could also change the flavor of this super easy chocolate fudge by adding some extract. I am liking the idea of some peppermint extract or orange chocolate. You can also have fun with the way you shape the fudge and give it away as a gift. All you do is get some metal cookie cutters. Place each cookie cutter on a piece of foil larger than the cookie cutter. Then wrap the foil around the outside of the cookie cutter to make a mold. Then fill with the fudge mixture and you can decorate it with candy if you want to. I got this idea and picture from Betty Crocker.Print
