From Land O'Lakes. ***Edited 12/22/2006 - I had not made this recipe and after the one reviewer said it was dry, decided to make it tonight. I decreased the powdered sugar to 2 2/3 cups and it turned out wonderful. My husband and children loved it. It is not dry or crumbly at all --as you can see from my pictures. I refrigerated the fudge for 1 1/2 hours and then cut it. I don't know if using less powdered sugar was the key. It might be that if you refrigerate it for too long, it is harder to cut. Please give it a try--it is very creamy and the toffee pieces give it a nice crunch!
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 (6 ounce) packagereal semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 2⁄3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup toffee pieces
- 2 tablespoons toffee pieces
- In a large microwave-safe mixer bowl, combine the butter, milk and chocolate chips.
- Microwave on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until butter and chocolate chips are melted.
- Stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth (2 to 3 minutes).
- By hand, stir in 1/2 cup toffee chips. Spread in a buttered 8-inch square baking pan.
- Sprinkle 2 tablespoons toffee chips over top; gently press into fudge.
- Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 1-1/2 hours).
- Cut into squares.
- Store refrigerated in airtight container.
My last attempt at making fudge was a disaster so I was quite pleased when this one worked out so perfectly! I didn't even have a hand mixer (I just beat it with a wooden spoon until it was smooth - boy were my arms tired! LOL But it worked!) Very creamy and delicious - I gorged myself on it and regret that now, but will probably do it again tomorrow! LOL I used Ghirardelli chocolate and a combo of plain toffee chips and chocolate covered ones. Thanks so much for the recipe Juenessa!
The flavor was wonderful however, the texture was awful to work with once it cooled. Very hard to cut as all it would do is crumble. Even though it tasted good, it was not worth the frustration of trying to cut it and not have it crumble. I will try another Toffee fudge recipe next time.
