So you begins wif your two ingredients. That's right, count 'em. TWO. One bag of semi-sweet chocolatey chippies, and one can of sweetened condensed milks. See my pathetic face? I am always hoping for more ingredients and a bigger mess.
Put the chocolatey chippies in a pot, and pour the whole can of sweetened condensed milks over it.
Try to get a lick of the sweetened condensed milks if you can, you will not be disappointed!
Line a square baking pan wif tin foil and set it aside at the ready! Um, ignore my mommeh's bottle of Chivas please. She sips while we cook. Holiday lush, MOL.
Put your pot over low heat, stirring verreh frequently, careful not to let any burn to the bottom of the pan or your fudge is ruined.
Now here's the customizable part. If you likes plain chocolate fudge, just pour it right into your foil lined pan and that's that. But if you likes flavors or textures, this is what you do. When your mixture is all smooth and shiny, you can add a couple tablespoons of a favorite liquor and give it a good stir, then pour into your foil lined pan. Or, what we likes even better, is adding stuffs to our fudge. So last night we poured half the mixture into the pan, then sprinkled some white chocolatey chippies all over it...
...then covered it up wif the other half of the mixture. If you uses things like white chocolatey chippies or butterscotchy chippies or peanutbuttery chippies, they melts wif the heat of the mixture and you gets lovely little swirls and chunks in the fudge. Or maybe you wants to add spoonfuls of peanutbutters and swirl through wif a knife, or cashews for a little crunch! They even has peppermint baking chips in stores now for the Catmas season, so if you is looking to get festive you could use those.
Come on mommeh, now that it is all in the pan it is time to put it in the fridge!
Let it set in there for about an hour, covered or uncovered, up to you depending on how you likes the top of your fudge. Covered will keep it a little smoother on top. Uncovered will give you that sort of crackly texture you sees in our piksher.
When it is readeh, lift out the tinfoil and peel down the sides of it, so you sees the fudge is in one big block. (See, the tin foil hadded a point - easy to get the fudge out of the pan, and no cleanup!) Cut into bite-sized squares wif a pizza cutter. Now you can puts them on a platter for a pawty, or in treat bags for gifts. For a festive touch, use red and silver curling ribbon to close treat bags, and ties a candy cane on!
Well that is it for my Culinary Thursday today. Hope you enjoyed my cheat fudge! AUDREY GET AWAY FROM MINE FUDGE!!!
