Oh So Easy Chocolate Fudge and Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party

Some fudge recipes have a long list of ingredients or a complex cooking procedure that rely on achieving the perfect temperature in order to get it to set properly. That’s why I love this recipe. Not only does it taste delicious, it is so easy to make and cooks in just 5 minutes.

Easy Homemade Chocolate Fudge - four ingredient chocolate fudge cooks in five minutes.


This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks: The Chocolate and Coffee Bible

(affiliate link: I receive a percentage of any books purchased through this link)

You only need a few basic ingredients, which you probably have in your kitchen: evaporated milk, sugar, salt, chocolate chips and nuts. And my favorite part is that you don’t need a candy thermometer. You just bring it to a boil and simmer for five minutes. I have made the recipe a few times so I can actually feel the change in thickness of the boiling milk and sugar just when it reaches the 5 minute mark.

I split mine into two batches right at the end and added some cashews to half, because some people do not like nuts in their fudge. Go figure!
