Easy Homemade Chocolate Fudge

25 Days of Christmas Countdown

Day 13


This is a recipe I use every time I need fudge. I mostly make it at Christmas, but if I was to need a fudge recipe at some point during the year, this is the one I use.

Avoid making this recipe on a wet and humid day. It will not set well.


3 c Hershey’s Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk (I used caramel flavor and it was delicious.)

1 c Walnuts, chopped

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (any flavor of your choice will work well, Peppermint is an amazing flavor to choose if you like minty fudge.)

Dash of Salt


In a heavy sauce pan, over low heat, melt the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in walnuts and vanilla.

Spread evenly into a waxed paper lined 8×8 or 9×9 pan. Chill for 2 hours or until firm. Turn fudge onto a cutting board, peel off wax paper and cut into squares.

Store at room temperature.

Disclaimer, my daughter taste tested and looooooved it.
