Festive Fudge

I copied this recipe from my Family Fun magazine, but it turned out super cute so I had to share.

  • 3 cups semisweet- or milk-chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Assorted sprinkles, sugars, and candy decorations
  1. Place the chocolate chips in a 2-quart bowl and microwave for 1 minute, then stir them with a wooden spoon. If the chips are not completely melted, microwave them again for 30 seconds, then stir until they're smooth.

  2. Stir in the condensed milk, salt, and vanilla extract.

  3. Line a 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil, extending it about 2 inches beyond each side. (This makes it easy to remove the fudge later.) Lightly spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

  4. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan.

  5. Chill the candy until firm, about 30 minutes in the freezer or 1 hour in the refrigerator.

  6. Lift the foil from the pan and place it on a flat work area. Use 1-inch cookie cutters to cut out the fudge, then lightly press decorations onto each piece. Makes about 50 pieces. (Note: mine recipe didn't make 50 pieces, but I didn't use very small cookie cutters)
