5 easy ingredients plus 5 minutes of prep time are all you need for a perfect, delicious, sweet and salty double chocolate fudge.Jump to Recipe
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.
Also, if you like a lot of chocolate, try my Triple Chocolate Coconut Bars, too!
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.
Pour the fudge into the parchment-lined baking dish. Refrigerate for about one hour to cool.
Use the parchment paper to pull the fudge out of the pan. Cut into pieces about 1-inch square. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Store in an airtight container

I am a sucker for chocolate fudge. It’s one of my favorite things to eat. I’m definitely going to have to try this recipe…it looks so easy!
I have to be careful about how often I make it because I would eat it all!
Oh this sounds so good! I love fudge and brownies and these seem pretty easy to make!
I make both of them from scratch and they are sooooooo good! Anything chocolate is a winner for me.
I am a chocolate lover and these fudges are calling my name. I always buy them in the store and never thought to make them myself. Thanks for sharing the recipe, you bet I am going to make them.
I am a complete chocoholic, so I get it. Fudge is so easy to make at home, and cheaper. I hope you enjoy it!
I never made fudge before but this amazing! I am such a chocolate fan and would love to make it!
I have made it a few times now, and this one was by far the easiest one I’ve made. It’s oh so chocolatey, too!
This looks amazing, Stephanie! I love chocolate desserts like this. Perfect for entertaining, or for myself when I need a little pick-me-up.
Thanks! I have to admit, I ate most of this when we made it! So simple, but so yummy!
I guess when you become the chef, things will seem easy to you. This is delicious snack and by the look of it, it makes want to try it.
I am by no means a chef, I just enjoy spending time in the kitchen 🙂 But this really is a fairly easy recipe, just microwave, mix, and pour!
I’ve never made fudge before. Not sure I have enough self control to have a plate of it sitting at home! Lol.
Oh I have no self-control either, especially when it comes to chocolate! I make desserts when I know I have people coming over to share 🙂
This sounds o delicious! I promise myself I was going to avoid eating chocolate this month, but I definitely need to try your recipe, I’ve never made fudge before!
Well, the month is almost halfway over, you can hold on to the recipe for next month! 🙂
I love chocolate but I’ve never been much of a fudge person. My kids pulled me into the world of fudge and there’s so much to enjoy. This looks very tasty.
I didn’t have a lot of fudge growing up unless my friend’s mom made it. It’s so easy, though, and delicious!
I love fudge! I normally have it around Christmas, but I’ll eat year-round!!!
I will definitely eat it year-round, too!
I tried this. It is super, delicious, and, extremely easy.
I’m glad you found it so easy and yummy!
