old fashoned chocolate fudge recipe

This is the quickest and most simple Old-Fashioned Chocolate fudge recipe I have ever made, and the texture is almost perfect. The recipe is basically a combination of semi sweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and sweetened condensed milk. This recipe makes 2 ½ pounds, so there is plenty to eat fresh, with left overs for the freezer.

These chcolate fudge squares would make a wonderful Christmas gift for a special someone over the holidays!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2½ pounds

  • 16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14-ounces)
  • 1tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Line a 8 x 8 baking dish with aluminum foil; lightly spray foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium size bowl mix together the chocolates, salt, and baking soda until well combined, and then stir in the condensed milk.
  3. Place 2 cups of water in a 4 quart sauce pan and heat until simmering. Place the bowl in the pan to create a double boiler. Stir chocolate constantly until most of the chocolate is melted, but a few small pieces remain, remove from heat and continue stirring until all the chocolate is melted; and then fold in the nuts.
  4. Using a rubber spatula layer the chocolate mixture over the bottom of the baking dish; refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting, and serving.
  5. Wrap left over fudge with plastic wrap to keep it from drying out and store it in the refrigerator, or freezer (can freeze for up to 3 months).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

We ate a couple, and the rest of the Peanut Butter Fudge squares are going into the freezer for the holidays. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe was originally titled Peanut Butter Fudge, but it is not Peanut Butter Fudge in its pure form. It seems like chocolate and peanut butter is meant for each other, and this Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is no different. The coco in the recipe gives it a rich chocolate flavor, and the favor of the peanut butter blends in perfectly.

Every time I prepare fudge I get nervous as to if it is going to set or not, but it never seems like it is really a problem. Just be sure to use a candy thermometer and follow the instructions for the recipe, and it should come out fine.

This is the first recipe I have seen that suggests using a paddle for finishing off the fudge. What a great idea; if you’ve ever made fudge before I’m sure you know how hard it can be on the hands. Anyway- if you don’t have a paddle, use a big spoon, either one will work.

The flavor and texture of this fudge was almost perfect-this Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe is going on my favorites list. If you want something special for the Holiday’s give this one a try, you’ll love it.

 

Ingredients

2 cups sugar

2 cups brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 1/3 cups milk

1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

1. In a saucepan, combine together the sugars, salt, cocoa powder, milk, and heat until sugar is dissolved.

2.  Add the butter and cook to 240F degrees F using a candy thermometer. (Be patient with this, it takes some time)

3. If you have a stand mixer and paddle pour the fudge mixer into a mixing bowl allowing to cool slightly then add the peanut butter and vanilla. (if you don’t have a paddle-add the peanut butter and vanilla directly into the pan, and mix by hand, using a large spoon.)

4. Beat the mixture until it cools and starts to stiffen, and begins to lose its gloss. Pour into an 8 x 8 inch pan coated with cooking spray or butter to cool and finish setting. Cut into 1 inch squares.
