Famous Fudge by Irene Peterson

It’s been a long time since I gave you any kind of recipe, maybe because I’ve been trying to stick to this diet and failing miserably. Especially with Valentine’s Day and chocolate abounding everywhere!

Anyway, this is my friend Irene Peterson‘s Famous Fudge. Really easy to make and even easier to eat! Irene has a new release coming up with Kisses to Go. It’s a story about a chef (always good) and art historian, stuffy British royalty and it has some paranormal happenings as well. Is it a good book? RT gave it 4 stars!

So here’s Irene’s Famous Fudge recipe (And yes, I hear you all. I’ll go back on the diet soon!):

Two bags chocolate chips of any kind
One can sweetened condensed milk
One tablespoon margarine.

Combine all three ingredients and heat by minute increments in the microwave, stirring well after each minute.

When completely melted, remove from bowl and add any other ingredients such as nuts, marshmallows.

Pour into flat 8×10 pan or similar size, refrigerate for 2 hours until fudge is hard. Cut into squares and enjoy.

I told you it was easy! Bon Apetit 🙂

  1. AAACK! I can’t believe it didn’t get solid. You have to let it cool in the fridge. It sets there. Actually, it starts to set almost immediately, but a good hour will do.
    HOWEVER, if you like fudge sauce, it works well on ice cream that way. Sweet as all get out, though.
    I cannot imagine why your attempt didn’t get hard. Are you sure you used sweetened condensed milk? That’s the key ingredient. It is a well kept secret in tons of recipes.
    Try again. Irene

  2. I tried this but it didn’t work. I got a toffee sauce at the end, not fudge. Does anyone know why I might have got it wrong?

  7. Nope, you can’t get any easier than that. Sorry to be such a bad influence on all of us trying to keep to diets, but fudge is such a comfort food. Let me know if you try it out, how you like it!
