FUDGE. MMMM. FUDGE. FUDGE. FUDGE. I LOVE YOU. FUDGE. Did you like my song?
As a kid every time we went to the candy store I would get a square of fudge, either vanilla, chocolate or peanut butter. Last year I had such a craving for fudge that I constantly whispered “i want fudge” while standing in the kitchen that Matthew surprised me with cookies and cream fudge. I think I cried. Fudge does that to me. So when I saw this recipe that said I could make my own fudge pretty easily, I was in.
This fudge is Nutella and Sea Salt. It’s sweet with chocolate and then with the added sea salt.. OH MY. This is dangerous. I have 48 pieces of fudge (well ok 45 now) in my fridge. Please come over, I’d like to share with you. Quick.
Full credit to this recipe comes from here with my tweaks below.
Servings: 48 pieces in mini bake cups
10 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Nutella (or equivalent)
3 tablespoons salted butter
sea salt (to top)
Spray the bottom of a 8×8 pan with baking nonstick spray. Then put wax/parchment paper inside the pan, lining it, you should have about a 2 inch overlap.
In a stainless steel bowl stir together milk, vanilla, chocolate chips, Nutella and butter.
Make a double boiler and bring to boil, then put your stainless steel bowl on top. Stir the mixture until everything is smooth and melted. (Look behind the cut for double boiler details)
Put the mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle with sea salt. Put in fridge for 3 hours.
Once the fudge is chilled, cut with a hot knife to loosen the fudge and then lift it out. Remove the paper and cut the fudge into squares. Keep in fridge.
Full instructions and lots of pictures behind the cut.
Mix in metal bowl:
Now you need a double boiler, and it’s very likely you don’t have one. This is a way to make your own.
Like this.. this smell is so delicious.
Prepare your pan with wax paper and then add mixture inside.. Use spatula to even out the chocolate.
Sprinkle your sea salt on top… Then put in the fridge.
