Double Chocolate Fudge

5 easy ingredients plus 5 minutes of prep time are all you need for a perfect, delicious, sweet and salty double chocolate fudge.

When I was in middle school, I remember my best friend’s mom making homemade fudge all the time. I would start to ask for it whenever I was spending the night there. I never realized how easy it can be to make on your own. Recently, I found myself craving some chocolate fudge. I decided I would use two different types of chocolate to make double chocolate fudge.

Sweetened condensed milk is the base ingredient for this fudge. But I didn’t need an entire can. I also hate wasting food. When we only needed a small amount of sweetened condensed milk for Banana Cream Puppy Chow, I started looking for ways to use the rest. The fudge results were overwhelming. After looking at a few recipes, we came up with our own.

Treacle Fudge is the only other fudge I’ve made before. That’s made in a similar way. But it’s still very different. This fudge was addicting! I have to be careful when I make it because I will grab a piece every time I walk past the kitchen. Which is often since it’s in the middle of my house!

You can use whatever chocolate you prefer. I made this with half semi-sweet morsels and half dark chocolate chips. Again, I didn’t want to waste food. Typically, I am not a fan of dark chocolate. But when my brother-in-law moved out of state he gave us a bunch of food which included a partial bag of dark chocolate chips. I knew they would have to be cooked into something. So the fudge was perfect!

I was a bit worried that the fudge wouldn’t be sweet enough. Dark chocolate is more bitter, and semi-sweet is, well, only partially sweet! But the sweetened condensed milk helped to balance it out.

Once our double chocolate fudge was cool, we sprinkled just a bit of kosher salt on top. It was just enough to give that sweet and salty combination that works so well.

Step by Step

Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper. In a small microwaveable mixing bowl, combine the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on high until they are melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Don’t overheat or the chocolate will seize up. Stir in the vanilla extract.
