My mom was the fudge queen. Once this time of year would roll around, we would be making fudge every night until the wee hours of the morning. Everyone wanted a batch and she never turned them down.
She had a lot of different recipes for fudge, some very traditional, which required cooking on the stovetop and a candy thermometer. But she also had easy recipes like this one that take just 4 ingredients. So good!
Here are some commonly asked questions
Can I change the type of nuts in this recipe?
Of course. I have made this with pecans and almonds, both turned out absolutely delicious. I just really prefer walnuts when it comes to fudge, so that is what I use the most when it comes to this holiday treat.
Do I have to use milk chocolate chips?
While that tends to turn out the best due to the properties of milk chocolate compared to others like semi-sweet or dark chocolate, you can make this recipe with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Dark chocolate tends to not be creamy enough and will become dry and crumbly.
If you would like to make a dark chocolate variety, I would suggest doing a 50/50 blend of dark chocolate chips and milk chocolate. You’ll still get the dark chocolate flavor but retain the creminess you want in a fudge recipe.
