Can you resist chocolate fudge? Not me.. that’s for sure.
This is the easiest recipe you can get for an homemade chocolate fudge. It takes only 5 to 10 minutes, no cooking involved just some chocolate melting and the result is smooth, creamy and … chocolaty. This recipe uses sweetened condensed milk and is a bit faster than the other recipe of chocolate fudge I’ve made. I would suggest to make both recipes and see which one do you prefer best.
Feel free to make whatever combinations you like, you can use coffee, nuts, fruits, lavender, orange or lemon zest, and the list can go on.
You can cut it in smaller or larger squares, can even freeze some and keep for later. I did that and it worked fine.
Don’t forget to let me know how it turned for you.
