Chocolate Walnut Fudge

The weather is not very good for spending time outdoors, but I still managed to clean my yard yesterday. What I learned in the process - rains are not only good for plants and the lawn but also for weeds. When my finger tips start to get numb, and my back hurts, a part of me says spray the weed killer! But the other part of me says - it’s unnatural.  Even if the weed killer is organic I can’t get myself to use it.  Old habits die hard.  I have to break my back laboring away plucking out one weed at at me.  And thus continues my never ending confusion of weeding the weeds or spraying the weed killer. 


Chocolate Walnut Fudge


Now with the yard weed-free, and an aching body, you will agree that I truly deserve a treat. Then again, who will make it? Since the answer is ‘me’ I decided on a smart, easy, quick and yet delicious dessert. Extremely delicious chocolate fudge!  This can be made in 5 minutes, and you only need simple ingredients that most will have handy in their pantry.  If you haven't tried this sinfully delicious fudge yet, do it right now. One bite and you'll be hooked for ever!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Morsels


These are quite addictive; don't blame me for not warning you.  ;-)

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Ingredients:

Semisweet Chocolate morsels- 2 full cups
Sweetened Condensed milk, fat-free/regular- 1 14oz can
Salt- a pinch
Pure Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Chopped Walnuts/any nuts of your choice- 1 cup

Method:

1.  Line a baking pan that is preferably 8 by 8 inch square, with a parchment paper.
2.  Gently heat the condensed milk and chocolate chips together in a thick bottom pan on very low heat.  Continuously stir till all the chocolate is melted.
3.  Turn off the heat, add vanilla and mix in well.
4.  Throw in the chopped walnuts and fold in.
5.  Spoon out into the prepared pan and level the top with a spoon or butter knife.
6.  Let it cool for an hour, cover with cling paper and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
7.  Cut into squares and serve.  Store the left-over in the refrigerator.

  34. @Finla : LOL. I make these things mainly because there are 2 little consumers in the home who don't have to worry about the calories at least in the near future :D

    @Shabs: 2 full cups is about 350-360gms of chocolate morsels :-)Sorry about tempting you and breaking your diet ;-)

  38. Dear Nameetha
    How are you? I am still alive and kicking ha ha. Actually am just off blog mostly due to some unavoidable circumstances. I love chocolate fudge but every time tried before, it has been more than disaster, either the milk and choko is burnt or it remains runny ha ha.
    I am tempted to try your recipe. But I know first, one has to stand and watch to learn perfectly.
    Have a nice weekend
