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
Ingredients
  • 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).
