I replaced the Vanilla with Peppermint extract. Then after its chilled I break it up and roll it into bite size balls and dust with Icing sugar......Let your imagination go wild with this. Also try mixed fruit and crushed nuts. Thanks for sharing. :)

Excellent presentation Lyds. Like jonipinkny below I use the microwave. I just put one and one half 11.5 oz packages of Toll House chips along with one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk into a Pyrex mixing bowl and heat it for 2 min. While that is heating I line a baking dish with aluminum foil (shiny side down or it may flake off onto the bottom of your fudge) and spray it with a non-stick spray. Then I just stir and pour the concoction into the dish and chill it for at least 2 hours ( I find that to be the minimum time to be able to cut it into serving size pieces. Important when you forgot to prepare something for a holiday gathering). I am always experimenting with the exact recipe. I have had success with using different flavored chips such as milk chocolate with dark or semi-sweet, chocolate and peanut butter chips, and I made a layered fudge using dark chocolate for the bottom and white chocolate for the top. Different flavored chips have a slightly different melting temperature particularly Heath English Toffee bits and Andes Cream De Menthe chips, so you may have to pop the mixture back in for another thirty seconds or so to get the right consistency. I will have to try adding the walnuts to the mix I always just put them on top or I sprinkle the top with sea salt. With only about 2 mins of prep time and one bowl and utensil to lick clean you can't go wrong. Now that you have me thinking about adding ingredients to the mix, I think my next batch will be dark chocolate, shredded coconut, and almond extract. Try for that Almond Joy taste.

I love almond Joy! I'm sure that will come out great! You got this all down to a science! Excellent job :-) I really wanna try the almond joy version now that you mentioned it. I think I'll give it a try in the near future sometime. Thanks Tom!

Hi Lyds, thanks for a brilliant recipe. Here in England our condensed milk comes in 396g (gram) tins - which fortunately is 14 ounces (when I was born we only had pounds and ounces, none of this new-fangled foreign measures!!!). According to google 3 Cups is 384g/13.5 ounces of chocolate. Looks like I need to go shopping tomorrow! Thanks again for a smashing recipe.

That is interesting...you guys dont use those measurements anymore. Here in the US it's all we use...I really should get familiar with the "new tangled measurements though." I'm sure it would be helpful. Thanks and enjoy your fudge!!

I have a similar recipe for Rocky Road Fudge but which takes two additional ingredients and I use a slightly different cooking (melting) method. The two additional ingredients are mini-marshmallows and some real butter. The butter adds smoothness and the marshmallows mimic Rocky Road Ice Cream. My cooking method it to use a faux "double boiler" i. e. a heat proof bowl over a pan of boiling water The vanilla, butter walnuts and marshmallows are added after the choclate has melted and completely integrated with the sweetened condensed milk.

I'll have to give your recipe a try, I have a weakness to Rocky Road. I didn't think of using a double boiler for this recipe although I think it would have worked out nicely.

Could you suggest what weight of chocolate that might be? I have several bars of chocolate I could use instead of chips. Thank you.

The Google says "1 cup of chocolate chips = 6.2 oz" So if you have a total of about 18.6 oz of chocolate you should be good to go. Don't worry too much if you are a little below or above that total weight. Good luck!
