Fudge is the perfect dessert. It’s rich; it’s chocolate; everybody loves it. I also believe fudge is what makes a house a home. All that being true, I’ve never made fudge over the stovetop. Why bother when you can make it in a microwave? It’s so simple, too. This recipe has never failed me. You’re only ever 4 ingredients away from homey fudge.
Ingredients(Makes 16 servings):
- 1 cup(8.5oz) of chocolate chips
- 1 stick(4oz) of butter(or Earth Balance)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup cream(or non-dairy substitute)
- handful of chocolate chips(optional)
- 1/4 cup crushed walnuts(optional)
Melt together the chocolate chips and butter. Sift in the powdered sugar and pour in the cream. Mix until completely homogenized.
If you want to include any toppings, drop them on top and push them in gently.
Put this in the refrigerator for a few hours to harden. Cut cold and serve at room temperature.
I had never tried this recipe with chocolate chips before. “What’s the point?” I thought. But the whole chocolate chips add a great crunch in the fudge that really stands out. Dare I say it’s my favorite batch ever? Yeah, it’s that good.
