I’ve always wanted to be able to make fudge, but have never been able to pull it off. That is, until I found the simplest fudge recipe ever. Two ingredients.
1 can of chocolate frosting and 1 bag of chocolate chips.
Because it is in my nature to complicate even the simplest of recipes, I decided to add crushed pretzels to mine.
I melted the chocolate chips in my Wilton Chocolate Pro (love my Wilton Chocolate Pro! I always managed to burn my chocolate before I started using it, now it melts perfectly!), then combined the melted chocolate with the chocolate frosting.
I spread the mixture into a buttered 8×8 baking pan.
Then I pressed crushed pretzels into the chocolatey goo.
Although I wanted to try a piece right away, I followed instructions and put the pan in the fridge to chill and harden.
After it had a chance to firm up, I cut a few pieces to enjoy with the fam.
Oh. My. Yum. Little pieces of heaven on a plate!
Next time, I think I will put the crushed pretzels on the bottom, so that the fudge is all up in the crumbly goodness.
Now that I know how to make cheater fudge, I think I want to try some variations. I keep thinking the chocolate with strawberry wafer cookies would be nom nom. What flavor combo’s have you tried with fudge (real or cheater recipes)?
