Chocolate Fudge with Crushed Pretzel Topping

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)?
