Just five components and under twenty minutes of prep time for this Straightforward Fudge Recipe! Super basic with no candy thermometer required, this may possibly be the simplest candy recipe I’ve shared but.
Effortless Fudge Recipe
This simple fudge recipe is my lazy day candy recipe (and you know I enjoy lazy recipes). It’s simple, minimal maintenance, and not fussy at all. It’s the laid back cousin to my nicely-loved (but slightly fussier) peanut butter fudge and outdated-fashioned chocolate fudge.
And yet, regardless of its effortlessness, it’s still totally best. Smooth and creamy texture. Wealthy chocolate-y-ness. Decadent and sweet but nonetheless flavorful and addictive. I’ve had other effortless fudges in the past that taste like biting into a waxy chocolate chip, this is not that fudge. It has its personal distinct (and creamy, did I mention creamy?) fudge texture and taste.
I feel you’re going to really like it.
How Do You Make Straightforward Fudge?
You need just 4 elements for making this effortless fudge:
- Sweetened Condensed Milk (make sure this is condensed milk and notevaporated milk, this fudge will not operate with evaporated milk )
- Chocolate Chips (a lot more on this below)
- Finely ground sea salt (or you can use standard table salt)
- Vanilla extract
Combine all of your components except for the vanilla extract in a saucepan above reduced/ medium/reduced heat. Stir consistently right up until the chocolate is melted and the elements are well-combined and smooth. In contrast to numerous fudge recipes that need boiling or attaining a particular temperature, this straightforward fudge recipe only requirements all of your elements to be melted collectively. No boiling, no candy thermometer.
Once your elements are all smooth and melted, eliminate from heat and right away stir in your vanilla extract. Pour the fudge at when into a pan that’s been lined with lightly greased foil and enable the fudge to set for many hours till firm all the way by way of.
1 essential point to note: this easy fudge only needs a handful of minutes of interest on the stovetop, but don’t walk away or cease stirring or it may burn up and the chocolate could seize, which is just about the only way you could wreck this recipe
Let’s Talk Chocolate Chips
We’re only utilizing a handful of components for this effortless fudge recipe, so it’s extremely crucial that we use top quality elements. I suggest utilizing flaky sea salt over table salt and if you occur to have it on hand, I highly advocate a splash of Madagascar bourbon vanilla above the regular stuff. However, the most essential ingredient is the chocolate chips.
Good quality chocolate chips will yield a high quality fudge. Personally, I recommend Ghirardelli. I guarantee I’m not affiliated with them but I’m usually happy with the results when I use their chocolate.
I wrote this straightforward fudge recipe with chocolate fudge particularly in mind and employed semisweet chips, but you can use other flavors of chocolate chips instead. I’ve had achievement creating this with milk chocolate and white chocolate chips (I’ve used white chocolate to make my cake batter fudge and my peppermint bark fudge).

I have a good deal of candy recipes that I don’t suggest putting in the refrigerator, but it’s really perfectly fine to place this effortless fudge in the refrigerator to velocity up the setting method. It will nevertheless consider about one hour for the fudge to set fully, but it’s considerably more quickly than leaving it out at space temperature.
