Easy to follow photo instructions for great ultra simple 5 Minute Fudge. An excellent and easy fudge for the holiday season. Everybody asks for the recipe.
We all love a little fudge but this recipe will make fudge a standard at your home. And don’t for get to get the kid involved in the decoration.
While this recipe seems to be all over the internet, we first saw it when Rachael Ray was on Oprah and Rachael Ray Throw a Holiday Party many years ago. Since then it has been a Christmas tradition at our house. It’s been made for presents and cookie exchanges along with extra for the family.
A very easy five.
Notes on 5 Minute Fudge:
Like your home, decorate as you wish. Some candied cherries in red and green are nice. Use white chocolate chips for a white fudge. Add some currants, and you decide just have fun with it. And gift away. I put some walnuts on top along with some red and green sprinkles.
The original recipe used low heat. Low on my stove is very low, so I used medium-low.
Of course you don’t have to make a wreath, a 9X9 pan works fine.
See my Easy Oreo Fudge for another variation.
Start with a medium non-stick saucepan over low or medium-low heat.
Add 12 oz package of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 9 oz of butterscotch morsels and one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk. Stir continuously until all is melted and mixed.
While the mix is melting, take a few moments and butter the inside of a 8-9 inch round pan. Strip the label off the milk can and cover with wax paper and place in the middle of the pan.
When fudge is completely melted (about 5 minutes) add one teaspoon vanilla and mix. Remove from heat and add 8 oz of walnuts. Other things can be substituted or added here.
Place into your prepared pan.
Decorate as you wish. Do this quickly since the fudge will set up fast. Cool for 20-30 minutes in a refrigerator.
Set pan in hot tap water to loosen for 2-3 minutes and pop out of the pan.
