Baking with B: Classic Chocolate Fudge

Everyone should know how to make chocolate fudge, everyone, because it’s one of those recipes that seems way harder than it actually seems. All of your friends will be impressed by your super-awesome candy-making skills and you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing you made a sweet treat in less time then it will take you to burn off the calories from one piece.

Classic Chocolate Fudge (makes 64 squares)

500 g. (about 3 ½ c.) best quality dark, milk or white chocolate, coarsely chopped

300 mL can sweetened condensed milk

Line the bottom and sides of a 8×8-inch pan with 2 overlapping pieces of plastic wrap, letting wrap half over sides of pan. Combine chocolate and milk a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on medium setting halfway through until chocolate is almost melted, 3-4 minutes. Remove and stir until evenly mixed and smooth. Scrape mixture into prepared pan and press down, smoothing top. Fold overhanging ends of plastic wrap over fudge to completely cover. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Fudge keeps well, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.

Happy baking!
