I love simple recipes! My family has always made the Fantasy Fudge from the back of the marshmallow fluff jar, and so I only made fudge once a year as a Christmas treat. I don’t own a candy thermometer, and I’m really, really bad at babysitting touchy food. But I love fudge. So much that once a year is kind of an issue.
That’s where this recipe comes in. With only two ingredients, no thermometers, and a practically no-fail method, this fudge is the answer to all my fudge problems. The recipe is simple, but the variations can get as exciting as you like. For starters, you can use any kind of chip that will melt as the base. White chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet, milk, peanut butter – whatever. If it will melt smoothly, it will make delicious fudge.
Then there’s the add-ins. You probably already caught me and noticed that the fudge in the picture is actually three-ingredient fudge since I added in almonds. I was actually going to make Almond Joy fudge and add some coconut to this, but I forgot the coconut at the store, so I just went heavy on the almonds. I’m kind of a fan, to tell the truth. Other great mix-ins are any kind of nuts, dried fruit, candies, other sorts of chips, and sprinkles. If you’re interested, white chocolate cranberry fudge is awesome, as is birthday cake (white chocolate and sprinkles), Reeses fudge (milk chocolate and Reeses pieces), and chocolate peanut butter swirl (just swirl some peanut butter on in there). And that’s just the stuff I’ve tried!
