This is from a REALLY old edition of Reader's Digest. I request this for my birthday instead of a cake. I think it is divine. Very rich though, beware! I usually omit the nuts and it still turns out just fine. (Cook time is chill time)

Hi Saturn: This is fabulous fudge! I make it even lower calorie by using unsweetened chocolate. Still very rich. I also often add 1 tsp espresso powder to the recipe to make it even richer. If I don't want to eat the whole tray myself, I make it for 1 as follows: 1 square unsweetened chocolate 2 T sweetened condensed milk 1/8 tsp espresso powder 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 T water Melt chocolate in micro; stir in milk and rest of ingr. Then add: 1/4 C nuts (I like walnuts) spread into small pan and let cool cut into squares Thanks Judy in WA

super easy & super yummy. I stored some in the fridge & some at room temperature (both in air-tight containers), the room temperature ones seemed to "dry out" overnight. I'd suggest storing them in the fridge.

The only problems I have with recipe is that it is very sticky because of the Vanilla, but you have to add that, it makes all the difference, and this doesn't last more then 3 hours....tops!! You can vary it with mint, broken graham crackers, riced krispies,coconut even toasted is good. This is the best and I don't like fudge...... NOT to sweet, just rich and YUMMY!!
