I wanted something fudge-y. But I wasn't in the mood for plain fudge. I don't like nuts in my fudge so I got inventive. The way they are wrapped in my photo was my 6 y.o. son's idea. I think these would be great on a platter with a whole bunch of other cookies for Christmas or something like that.
- 3 cups chocolate chips
- 1 (300 g) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups chow mein noodles, broken up
- 1⁄2 cup quick oats
- Line an 8" pan with waxed paper.
- In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips, condensed milk, cocoa and peanut butter.
- While that is coming together, gather up the remaining ingredients.
- When the chocolate mixture becomes all creamy and blended together, remove from heat and quickly mix in the vanilla, chow mein noodles and oats.
- Dump into pan. With slightly damp fingers, press the fudge out to the edges.
- Place in the fridge to chill for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
- Cut into small squares.
- Keep covered as it will dry out.
Loved this! I halved it (because I only had 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips) and used fat free sweetened condensed milk. I froze some of these in snack bags for lunchbox treats. These are chocolatey and have some nice crunch to them. Great fudge! Updated to add that I froze them in snack size bags and they made a great lunchbox addition!
These are wonderful! I've made them while in the US and they were delightful. Thanks for sharing :)
