Fudge It

This couldn't get any easier.

And you only need a microwave.

2 WWP+ if you cut fudge into 6x6
1 WWP+ if you cut fudge into 7x7

Base Recipe:
  • 1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate (i.e. chips, chunks, chopped, etc)
  • 1 14 oz. can nonfat sweetened condensed milk
Step 1:
  • Melt in microwave in 40 second increments, stirring until smooth
  • Be careful not to burn the chocolate! Yuck
Step 2:
  • When smooth, add in 1 tsp of vanilla extract and any of these wonderful flavors:
    • 1 1/2 cup walnuts, almonds, pistachios, or macadamias (classic!)
    • 1/2 c. crushed candy canes or peppermints and 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
    • 1 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 tsp rum extract (tropical!)
    • 1 cup mini marshmallows, 1 cup chopped pecans (rocky road!)
    • 1 cup mini marshmallows, 1 cup broken up graham crackers (smores!)
    • 1 1/2 cup chopped nut brittle or toffee
    • 3/4 c. dried cranberries and 3/4 c. cashews (trail mix!)
    • 1 cup peanut butter, swirled in
    • 1 cup marshmallow fluff, swirled in
    • 1 cup candied orange, chopped
    • 1 1/2 cup oreos, chopped
    • 1 1/2 c. butterfinger, chopped (or any favorite candy bar)
    • 1 1/2 c. M&M's (preferably holiday colors!)
    • 3/4 c. dried cherries, 3/4 c. mini marshmallows
    • 1 cup chocolate covered espresso beans and 1/2 tsp coffee extract
Step 3:
  • Line the bottom and sides of a shallow pan with generous amounts of plastic wrap
  • Pour in fudge mixture, and smooth flat (about 1" thick)
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours
  • Pop the fudge sheet out of the pan using that handy dandy plastic wrap lining (ps. that pan is clean since you lined it with all that plastic wrap ... you're welcome!)
  • Cut into bite size pieces of your preference! 
  • Wrap in plastic wrap if you plan on keeping it for several days
I think I got my point across regarding the endless flavor possibilities. In any case, if you think it would taste good, you're probably right!
