Chocolate Fudge

Okay, this is nothing spectacular, fudge is fudge right? Well, I just wanted to offer some suggestions for those who may want to make this recipe (or one like it) but haven’t because of the dairy. I made this batch with dairy but I think there is a nifty way around it for dairy free folks. I have ordered some rice milk powder and bought a ginormous tub of Earth Balance vegan spread to start experimenting with more dairy free recipes. The dairy free rice milk powder should be here Tuesday, so I will test a batch of homemade dairy free sweetened condensed milk in this fudge recipe. I will also try it out in the Magic Mix recipe to see if we can come up with a great dairy free condensed soup! I am so excited to see how it works out! Anyway…

I have always used the following recipe from the Kraft website for Baker’s Classic Chocolate Fudge. I like this recipe because the end product has a smooth and creamy texture. A very small piece goes A LONG WAY!

2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate (When I test the dairy-free batch later this week, I am going to try using Hershey’s Cocoa. The back of the package says that 3 Tbs. Cocoa Powder + 1 Tbs. Shortening or Oil is equivalent to a 1 oz. square of Baking Chocolate. Doing the math, that is 3 cups of Cocoa Powder and 1 cup Shortening or Oil for this recipe.)
1 can  (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk (For this batch, I used the Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk, which makes me feel not as guilty eating it. I cannot tell the difference in taste from the full fat version to the fat free version)
1 cup chopped Walnuts (optional)
2 tsp.  Vanilla
  • LINE 8-inch square pan with foil (I used parchment paper). Microwave chocolate and milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 3 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 2 min.; stir until completely melted. Stir in nuts and vanilla.
  • SPREAD onto bottom of prepared pan.
  • REFRIGERATE 2 hours or until firm. Use foil to lift fudge from pan before cutting into pieces.

Luke calls this "Budge." LOL!

Somebody help me...please 😀
