Holiday FUDGE!

 I'm calling this holiday fudge because the only time I ever see fudge, or eat it is around Christmas time.  That's probably a good thing seeing as this recipe is highly addictive!  We all seem to be reaching into the fridge for a piece a little to often!   Fudge is an odd word and I feel like I'm saying it way to much in this post, haha.

My mom is a total baker, and sweet tooth girl like me.  One of my fondest memories of my mom around Christmas is her slaving away in the kitchen for days making all her cookies, fudge, and mini cakes!  I shouldn't say slaving because she loves doing all that baking.  Sadly, we live over 4 hours away from my folks so I don't get to taste test her lemon bars and rum cakes (my fav)  anymore.  She makes trays and trays for her employees, friends, and family. 

My moms recipe for fudge is way more complicated than mine.  So I must admit I like my version a little better.  I think my mom will get a kick out of this because this fudge doesn't call for marshmallow creme or even butter.  It was so easy and quick to make my girls barely had time to sneak any chocolate chips.

Holiday Fudge Recipe

3 cups of Chocolate Chips, I used 2 cups of Semi Sweet and 1 cup of Milk Chocolate morsels
1 14 oz. can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

Yes, only 2 ingredients! First off I lined a 8x8 pan with foil and sprayed the foil with coconut oil spray. Then I melted the chocolate chips in medium size pot.  When they started to melt down I added the entire can of sweetened condensed milk and stirred till completely smooth and melted.  Quickly spread fudge mix into the pan and put into fridge till it is cold.  I sliced ours into 2 bite pieces. 

You can add any toppings of your choice to make the fudge more festive, but I knew Amira wouldn't be hip to candy cane bits on top.  She would however enjoy mini marshmallows so I think we will try that next.  You could also add in dried fruit or nuts, very classic!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you run out to the store to get the 2 ingredients for this fudge!

Much love, Linzi
