When I was pregnant with my second child I had a huge fudge craving. I looked up recipes but only found ones that required candy thermometers and I began rumors that fudge is temperamental, so I began to look in the grocery store for fudge and couldn’t find any. Too bad I didn’t come across the following recipe back then, or I would have been eating fudge for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and midnight snacks!).
I found the recipe at Dozen Flours, and used Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips. However, I noticed in the comments of that post that someone replaces the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, which is something I also have to try!
This fudge is super delicious! I’m keeping it in the refrigerator for a firmer texture; it’s all I can do to keep away from it! I think that this fudge, cut up into tiny squares, would make a great Christmas favor or treat, especially placed in individual mini treat bags (since it’s getting to be that time, I am thinking of all kinds of things I can make for Christmas!).
A very similar version of this fudge recipe is listed on a mini recipe pamphlet that came on the can of sweetened condensed milk – marbled chocolate fudge. There is a local cookie exchange happening early in December, where we can take cookies, bars, fudge, etc. and I think I’ll be making this marbled fudge. Stay tuned for that!
