Just about the easiest recipe I have in my trusty index card file is this one for fudge. Four ingredients, two steps, that's it. We needed some extra sweets for the book signing tomorrow at our shop, the gluten-free book signing and this fit the bill, as I was spending the day in the kitchen while Dan manned the shop.
You can make this fudge with any flavor of morsel, not just chocolate chips, so think butterscotch, peanut butter, white chocolate.....
Just be sure to check that all ingredients are gluten-free.
Here's the easiest recipe you'll ever try:
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla
Place chips and milk in a small pot and heat over low flame until melted, stirring every minute or so. This takes about 5 minutes. Add nuts and vanilla.
Butter a 9x9 or 7x10 pan. Pour fudge into pan and spread evenly. Cover and refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).
Cut fudge into squares.
That's it! And it tastes like you sweated all day over a hot stove.
Makes about 24 pieces of fudge.
