Fudge is the #1 choice when it comes to sweet treats. No matter what kind of fudge I make, kids will eat it like it’s the last piece of food on earth. I usually try a new recipe almost every month, and if it’s a good recipe, it’s stored in my secret stash of dessert recipes.
Last week I made this great fudge crown recipe. I think it was originally a vacation recipe, but who cares? It’s still delicious! If you thought doing a fudge wrapping with decorations was a little too Christmassy for the occasion, then just do this recipe and chill the fudge on a simple baking sheet instead. Or use these tiny candies – they would make a super cute presentation!
I would have liked to keep this wreath as a decoration a little longer, but it was gone in a few minutes… Maybe I should make two next time, so at least the other one survives until the next day. Yes indeed!
I hesitated to try it at first but I was very surprised. I waited a few hours and then put the pan in the fridge to cool down ~ used baking paper at the bottom of the pan so it was easy to take out. Cut it into 1 inch squares and I must say not a single person said they didn’t like it. In fact, one of the women works in a chocolate store and she even said it was great. I’m just going to make a second batch now. It will be on my candy list for Christmas. Thank you so much for submitting a super easy and really delicious recipe!
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups (1 bag of 12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
- Butter a square pan and line with parchment paper to easily remove the fondant.
- Set aside. In 2-quart microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk on high for 1 minute.
- Remove from microwave. Let stand 1 minute, then stir to combine. If necessary, heat an additional 30 seconds.
- Stirring until chips are fully melted and chocolate is soft.
- Stir in vanilla extract. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan.
- Allow fudge to completely cool before you cut it into 1-inch pieces (you can place in the fridge) for 1 hour to accelerate the process.
- Store in an airtight container. The fudge does not need to be stored in the refrigerator.
