Thanks to Eagle Brand for providing products used in collaboration for this post. All opinions are my own.
Confession time: I don’t think I’ve ever made fudge before. It has felt like it might be too complicated, and in actuality it’s about the simplest treat I’ve attempted. But when Eagle Brand reached out and asked if I’d be up for making a holiday treat with their sweetened condensed milk, I was up for challenging myself.
This brings us to this five minute fudge.
Okay, technically it takes about an hour and a half to really set (in the refrigerator), but the process to get to that refrigeration time takes just a few minutes. Clean-up took even less time.
So I could have used a square pan to make just regular fudge, but I took it up a notch with the snowflake silicon pan. (That’s an affiliate link!) I wasn’t sure if it would stick to the sides (I don’t have good luck with silicon pans), so I sprayed it with cooking spray to be sure the fudge would slide out (and it totally worked!)
- 1 can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
- 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix the Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a medium sized glass dish. Microwave the dish on high for a minute. Stir the mixture, and if the chocolate isn’t fully melted, microwave on high for 20-30 more seconds. Once fully melted, add the vanilla and stir well.
Spray your silicon pan with a cooking spray. If not using a silicon pan, line a dish with parchment paper. Pour the fudge mixture into the pan and refrigerate for about 90 minutes.
You guys. The fudge is not TOO sweet, but it’s sweet enough. I took it into work, and we’ve been getting pieces of the snowflakes off with a knife (because in reality the snowflakes are pretty big, and you may want to share them.) You can taste the chocolate, but the sweetened condensed milk is really what helps with the sweetness of the fudge (without being over the top.) I’m so pleased with the results.
I’m kind of in love with these, and now I want to figure out what else I can use the snowflake pan for. And what other recipes I can make with the sweetened condensed milk!
What treats are you making this holiday season?
