Incredibly easy and deliciously creamy chocolate fudge that only requires 4 ingredients to make!
- 24 oz good quality chocolate 680g, finely chopped
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14oz/397g
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 42g, cubed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Set aside.
Place the chocolate, condensed milk, butter, and vanilla in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat. The mixture will be very thick.
Spread the mixture into the prepared pan, and smooth out the top. Refrigerate for at least 2 - 4 hours until firm.
Microwave: To make the fudge in the microwave, simply add all the ingredients to a large heat-proof bowl, and heat on high, stirring every 1 minute, until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan, and smooth out the top. Refrigerate for at least 2 - 4 hours until firm.
Fudge can be stored, in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week, or in the fridge for 2 - 3 weeks. It also freezes well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
