Easy Walnut Fudge Recipe
Fudge is delicious year-round, but I’ve found that people love it especially during the holidays. I’m so thankful it’s easy to make!
If you don’t like walnuts, you can sub them out for peanuts or even almonds. Basically any type of mix in you could ever dream of would be great in this simple walnut fudge recipe.
To begin, gather all ingredients, and chop the walnuts. I prefer using the Fisher Brand Nuts, Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, and Toll House or Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, but I shopped for ingredients too close to the holiday, and some of my preferred brands were sold out! The store brand worked just fine though, so don’t be afraid to use those, if necessary!
Line 8×8 casserole dish with parchment paper. Combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips over low to medium heat in a medium sauce pan. Once melted together, add in vanilla and walnuts.
*Note: I’d like to mention again that you can easily substitute in pecans or any nut of your preference, or even leave them out all together. I sometimes make a batch with walnuts and a batch of plain fudge. When gifting, I bag them separately, so if someone has a nut allergy, they can still enjoy the plain fudge 🙂
Pour fudge mixture into lined casserole dish.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting.
The quantity served will depend on the size of the squares you cut. I like small pieces, so I cut mine into 24 pieces, to make 24 individual servings.This delicious, easy #Walnut #Fudge #Recipe, featuring @fishernutsbrand needs just 4 ingredients! http://bit.ly/2HyQVeD via @WhenIsDinner1
