Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk in this recipe for the "Easiest Fudge in the World", not evaporated milk - that's a common mistake. It is probably the simplest recipe in the world, let alone the easiest fudge recipe, thus the name! But it tastes like a complicated fudge from a specialty candy shop.
You can use other types of chips in this recipe. Try butterscotch chips for butterscotch fudge, or use white chocolate chips for vanilla fudge. Add-ins are nice too. Try stirring in chopped nuts, or chopped dried cherries or cranberries (fabulous in vanilla fudge!). You can also layer two types of fudge in one 9" x 13" pan to make layered fudge! Have fun with this recipe and enjoy every bite.
- Place chips and milk in microwave safe bowl. (You can use just the one package of semisweet chocolate chips, or add the milk chocolate chips for a fudge that is slightly sweeter and creamier.)
- Microwave on medium power for 2-3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes.
- Microwave, stirring at 1-minute intervals, until chips are melted and the mixture is smooth and thick. Stir in butter and cream until combined.
- Pour into greased 8" square pan and cool. You can also melt the chips and milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat.
Let the fudge stand until it's cooled and firm. Then wrap well and store at room temperature. Cut into pieces just before serving.
