Recipe: Easiest Fudge

I love the idea of making candies with my kids, but the sensitive nature of temperature control, heated to scalding sugar, and the enthusiasm of kids in the kitchen are a bad combination. Happily, I found a recipe online that is perfect of making fudge with kids. It takes about 7 minutes per batch, you can add your own flavorings, and no one is stirring sticky stuff on the stove while trying to keep little fingers out of the pan.

Little hands safely helping! We will do real candy making when we are older.


I found it here on, and I'm including it below because it is just so simple.

In a glass bowl, mix 3 cups chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butter, and 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk. Heat for 3-5 minutes (I heated mine for 2 minutes, then one minute at a time) until almost melted. Stir to finish melting and to incorporate any flavoring (we added peppermint to one batch, ginger to one, and orange to the last one). Spread in a well greased 8×8 pan, sprinkle and press in any toppings (crushed candy canes!). Cool, slice, eat.

It was so simple we made three batches which, as it turns out, is a lot of fudge. We will probably survive.


Cut into one inch squares, pop into mini-muffin papers, store in the fridge.
