I talked about this a little on the air yesterday. The snow this weekend launched me headfirst into the Christmas spirit! One minute the flakes are falling....the next minute, I'm in the kitchen singing "Winter Wonderland" while making fudge. A few of you emailed me and asked for the recipe. I SWEAR this is the easiest fudge you will ever make:
2 bags of chocolate chips(I used the milk chocolate kind because Patrick & Aimee don't like dark chocolate)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of vanilla (or to taste)
Melt the chocolate chips together with the sweetened condensed milk over medium heat. Stir frequently. When the mixture is nice and smooth with no lumps, stir in the salt. Stir for about 60 seconds. Remove from heat and mix in vanilla (you can even mix in some almond flavoring or peppermint, if you like that). Put the mixture in an 8x8 pan, lined with wax paper. When cool, cut into squares.
