The first documented chocolate fudge recipes came from two female college students in New York during 1888.
The girls would make batches of fudge and sell them for .40 a pound. The first chocolate fudge recipes were very complex and precise. Today the majority of chocolate fudge recipes are simple enough for novice cooks to obtain perfect results.
Here is a nutty chocolate fudge recipe:
3 cups milk chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped walnuts or other favorite nuts (optional)
1/8 tsp salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place milk chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter , salt and vanilla extract in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on medium until chips are melted, about 2-5 minutes, stirring once or twice during melting. Stir in nuts, if desired.
Pour into 8×8-inch pan that you have lined with foil and coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until set. Cut into squares and enjoy!
