Milk Chocolate Fudge-smooth, creamy and easy to make!


I love this time of year! Everyone expects you to bake and make sweet treats. It’s like a free pass to go wild in the kitchen. The kids get into too. “Mom, whatcha making today?” “I love you mom, I’ll just grab a few of these (insert today’s treat) and be on my way.” They also help with making the treats.

Thanksgiving weekend was like the releasing of the bulls in Pamplona. How many recipes can we bake/cook up in one weekend? A ton, let me tell you. Part of it is we’re putting together a care package for my son-n-law in Afghanistan.  We went wild, we made Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies, Swedish Christmas Cookies, Fried Pecans, Eggnog Fudge, Cinnamon Biscotti, Hot Chocolate Mix, Mexican Wedding Cookies, Pecan Pie Bars. Peanut Brittle.

This is just the beginning of my Holiday baking. Most of it will quickly leave the house. It has to. It’s just to easy to go and grab a few cookies instead of making something for lunch. I had cookies with my coffee for breakfast the other day.

This fudge never had the chance to leave the house. My son was the one who actually made it. I just supervised (sat at the kitchen table on the laptop…on facebook.) I did help clean up, I licked the spoon and pan. Someone had to do it.

I did also try to get a photo of a piece of fudge with a bite taken out of it, but…I could never get the perfect bite. I tried on four or five pieces of this fudge, honest.

  29. I made this fudge twice in the last week and it is soo good! The first time it tasted like Hershey’s chocolate. I made my second batch with milk and white chocolate. delish!

  30. I made two batches of this fudge yesterday and I have to say that I love this recipe. I was shocked that it was so easy to make! I made one semi sweet batch and one milk chocolate batch, and I wasn’t 100% happy with the semi sweet. It seems to have seperated and the consistency is a little off, but it still tastes great.
    The milk chcocolate on the other hand was AMAZING! It was so smooth and creamy. I’ll be using milk chocolate in this recipe every time from now on.
    Thanks for such a fantastic recipe!

    Instead of chocolate chips try the peanut chips for peanut butter fudge, brings back a lot of childhood memories!

  32. This looks amazing. Will be cooking tomorrow, I’m afraid there goes the diet. Ha ha

  33. Melissa says:

    I always get a tiny bit frustrated when I read about great recipes on blogs, and there aren’t any commenters that have actually tried the recipe. So, I am here to say that this recipe was not only easy, but was also very delicious! I also followed the recipe exactly, no substitutions or alterations. Give it a try!

  34. Marianne DuVernet says:

    Can I use a substitute for the buttered aluminum foil? Like can I use wax paper or parchment paper?Should either one of them be buttered?
