Ingredients
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate (you could use bittersweet as well)
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional*
Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8 square pan with non-stick foil.
  2. In a medium-large sized pot, melt chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter over medium heat until the mixture is completely smooth.
  3. Stir in vanilla extract, salt and chopped nuts (if using) into the fudge.
  4. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan, smoothing it in an even layer.
  5. Allow the fudge to chill in the fridge for about 4 hours, or until firm.
  6. Remove foil from the pan and cut fudge into squares.
  7. Enjoy!
  8. I would store leftover fudge in the fridge as the fudge does soften when as room temperature.
Recipe Notes

*If you prefer, you can sprinkle the nuts on top of the fudge rather than mixing them in. You can do this two ways. You can add the nuts as soon as the fudge is poured into the pan, or you can add it after the fudge has chilled (the nuts will need to be lightly pressed into the fudge to ‘stick’).
