Paula Deen’s 5-Minute Fudge is a quick and easy recipe that yields delicious chocolate fudge. Here’s the recipe.
: Ingredients: 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup chopped nuts (optional) Instructions: Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
Lightly grease the lining. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Microwave the mixture on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Continue to microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the mixture is fully melted and smooth. Once the mixture is smooth, stir in the vanilla extract and chopped nuts if you’re using them.
Quickly transfer the fudge mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Refrigerate the fudge for at least 2 hours or until it is set. Once the fudge is set, use the parchment paper or foil overhang to lift it out of the baking dish. Place it on a cutting board and cut it into small squares. Store the fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
This recipe is perfect for a quick sweet treat, and you can customize it by adding your favorite nuts or other mix-ins. Enjoy your homemade Paula Deen’s 5-Minute Fudge!
