Recipe by SarasotaCook
READY IN: 20mins


  • Basic Fudge
  • 3
    cups baking chocolate (Nestle or any brand of flavored morsels. It can be peanut butter, butterscotch, white chocolate, dar)
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
  • 18
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla extract (but you don't have to just use vanilla, add any flavor you like)
  • Options
  • extract (Not just vanilla, such as, mint, peppermint, fruit flavors, almond, you can also use liquors such as)
  • nuts
  • candy cane, pieces
  • candied fruit
  • toffee pieces
  • cookie, pieces
  • candy bar, pieces
  • fruit preserves (not jam or jellie)


  • Fudge -- First, line a 8x8" pan with either wax paper, parchment paper or foil (bottom and the sides). I happen to prefer parchment paper if possible.
  • Microwave -- Add the Eagle Brand, flavored morsels on medium heat in the microwave for 3-6 minutes (the size bowl and your microwave can affect the cooking times). Half way through I stir and then continue cooking until creamy and smooth.
  • Flavor -- Remove from the microwave and add in the flavoring and any other additions such as nuts or dried fruits, etc. Anything you want. Stir to combine.
  • Add to your pan. At this point you can add some additional nuts or toppings it you want. Cover with plastic and cool in the refrigerator about 1 hour. Remove from the pan by just turning it over, it will come right out, pull off the foil, parchment paper or wax paper, and cut into squares. You can let it cool right on the counter, but I like to chill mine before cutting, it just makes it a bit easier.
