Nancy's Kitchen - Tried and Tested Recipes
I came up with a new (to me) fudge that is very
I think. It's easy too! A real plus. First of all,
prepare the pan. Place a piece of aluminum foil in an
8x8 or 9x9 pan with ends overlapping the end of the
pan. Spray lightly with spray.
recipe calls for:
3 c. chocolate chips
I used 2 c.
semi-sweet and 1 c.
of Prepared Pantry's mint chips
I had as a leftover
1 14-oz can condensed
milk, like Eagle Brand
I heated these ingredients
in an 8-cup Pyrex measuring bowl with a handle, in the
microwave until the chips were almost melted and stirred
extremely well so the fudge would be smooth.
microwave oven is 1200 watts so I think it probably took
approx. 2 minutes. Just be sure to watch the mixture.
More than likely you will not see the chips melting, but
they will hold their shape, so just heat until it is
possible to stir the mixture and the chips will melt
into the milk mixture.
When this has occurred,
take the mixture out of the microwave and add a dash of
salt and approx. 1 tsp. of good vanilla. I also used
approx 1 c. of lightly pre-toasted walnuts, which I cut
into fairly coarse pieces. Add the nuts and stir until
everything is well mixed together. Place into pan and
When fudge is firm turn out onto a
cutting board and cut into small pieces; it's very rich.
I think it's got just the right amount of mint flavor,
not too minty. Thanks to the Prepared Pantry for good
After cutting, I put the pieces into
a tin and refrigerated it. I am sure it will keep for
a long time if kept like this. I plan to share this
with a few folks. Enjoy!
