Making your own homemade chocolate fudge is fun and easy, and you can customize the recipe in so many ways. Use this basic chocolate fudge recipe, but add a handful of your favorite nuts, dried fruits, or candy pieces for your own version.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can/14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoons butter (cold)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Combine the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook stirring until the chocolate has melted. Remove from heat; add the vanilla, butter, and salt, then stir until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with plastic wrap. Pour the fudge into the dish, spread evenly, and smooth the surface with a spatula. Refrigerate until firm, at least one hour. Turn out of the pan, remove the plastic and cut into squares.
