What a wonderful time of the year! We have been enjoying the holiday season - decorating, shopping, baking, singing Christmas songs, and even playing in the snow and making snowmen. My youngest even found time to ride his trike while I shoveled the snow from our driveway the other day. Do you think I could attach a snow plow to his trike? I am sure you are all just as busy readying yourselves for the holidays, so I thought I might share a recipe with you that you are sure to appreciate! I promise, this is the easiest fudge that you will ever love! My aunt, Sue, passed it along a couple of years ago - and there is only TWO ingredients, unless you add nuts and then there is a whopping THREE! Quality ingredients are key to what might just be some of the creamiest fudge you have ever made!!! So don't skimp, use premium Ghiradelli chocolate and a brand name cream, such as Darigold or Meadow Gold and you should be set!!!
Fudge - The Easiest Fudge You Will Ever Love
*Recipe on Crazy Daisy courtesy of Susan Bodner
*Note - Double this recipe and use a 9x13 pan for even more yummy fudge. I also should tell you that I have made this with Ghiradelli Semi-sweet chocolate chips, and it works beautifully - but is for only those who adore smooth creamy DARK chocolate!
3/4 cup brand name heavy whipping cream, such as Darigold or Meadow Gold
2 3/4 cups Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 to 1 cup nuts or brickle chips, or favorite add ins - chopped or whole, whichever you prefer, optional
Butter a 8x8 square baking dish. Or for easier cutting, line the pan with foil. Make sure the foil hangs over opposite edges so that you have handles to pull the fudge out of the pan with when it is finished. Butter the foil. Set aside.
In a heavy saucepan, warm cream over medium high heat until it is warm enough to melt chips. Place chips into saucepan and stir until they are completely melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate, cut into pieces, and enjoy!
It doesn't get much easier than this, does it?
