Some chocolate fudge recipes have a long list of ingredients or a complex cooking procedure that rely on achieving the perfect temperature in order to get it to set properly. That’s why I love this recipe. Not only does it taste delicious, it is so easy to make and cooks in just 5 minutes.
This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks: The Chocolate and Coffee Bible (affiliate link: I receive a percentage of any books purchased through this link)
You only need a few basic ingredients, which you probably have in your kitchen: evaporated milk, sugar, salt, chocolate chips and nuts. And my favorite part is that you don’t need a candy thermometer. You just bring it to a boil and simmer for five minutes. I have made the recipe a few times so I can actually feel the change in thickness of the boiling milk and sugar just when it reaches the 5 minute mark.
I split mine into two batches right at the end and added some cashews to half, because some people do not like nuts in their fudge. Go figure!
Easy Homemade Chocolate Fudge

- 1/2 cup nuts (pecans, almonds, hazlenuts, pistachios)

- Remove from heat and add chocolate and nuts (if using). Stir until chocolate is melted.
