Fudge | Summer

It’s really hard to believe that my first year as a freshman is over. It really feels like I was ranting about my fears of high school years just yesterday. I honestly anticipated this year to take forever, just like everything I don’t like seems to take, but really it just rushed right by. I’m surprised that I’m now a sophomore. I can still remember clearly of how I walked into the high school for the first time as a student, and wondering why school decor was always so drab.

And so sophomore year starts…

On a brighter note: I have a quick and simple recipe to share!

It’s fudge.

A fudge shortcut. Its ridiculously easy to make, and you can make it in ten minutes.


Oh and one last little thing: I made a face book page for the blog! Go and check it out and like it!

Here’s the link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Notorious-Experiments/182235575167065?ref=hnav

and here is the recipe:

Simple Fudge

PS: before you start making this recipe, know that it is very, very sweet. I rarely eat more than one or two pieces in a sitting because it is simply that sweet.

Adapted from Baking Addiction

  •  3 cups chocolate chips(semi-sweet or dark chocolate is good, in the pictures above I used dark chocolate)
  • 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 a tsp of salt(fleur de sel is preferable but i have used regular table salt sometimes)
  • 1 1/2 a tsp of vanilla
  • if you really want to add some sort of nuts or something go ahead!(i recommend about a cup)
  1. Line an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil
  2. Mix together the chocolate, condensed milk, and salt in a medium pan, until the chocolate is completely melted and blended in.
  3. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla.
  4. working quickly pour the mixture into the lined pan(or else it will cool and harden, and when you’re smoothing the top, it’ll start cracking[it will look like its cracking], and it will look strange)
  5. Cool in the refridgerator for at least 45 minutes or until it is completely cold and firm.
  6. To cut it: make sure you use a knife with no ridges, or anything on the blade, other wise the edges of the fudge pieces will look strange. You want a knife like this:

    This looks dangerously easy…im very tempted to try it out but with just my mum and myself in the house my tummy and hips would definitely not be thanking you even if my tastebuds were! i might just go crazy and make it anyway as i have all the bits n bobs already :)

    I’m finally finished with my freshman year as well! And your fudge looks delicious. I’ve made old fashioned fudge, but an easy recipe would be handy to have on hand.

    I just finished high school and I’m on my last summer break before I get into college! The time goes by super fast, so enjoy high school, like Katie said.

    The picture of the fudge also made me do a huuuuge doubletake. It looks absolutely stunning. and chocolatey!

    ah so true! high school does weird things to your head where you go “where is the week go? no where did the YEAR go?! Oh my word, where did my childhood go?!?!” but i usually find i can calm myself in the kitchen, by myself, with music or in quiet, enjoying a moment to myself and the ingredients coming together beneath my hands… :)

    I love using a very dark chocolate and swirling in dulce de leche, a sprinkle of fleur de sel…heaven!

    I so enjoyed this fudge!! I am surprisingly not a big chocolate fudge fan, although other than that I can’t get enough chocolate. But I enjoyed it so much I had to share, both with you and with others!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!

      Hey Christine, I’m sorry this didn’t work for you!
      Can you give me some details?
      Like how long did you cool it
      and what type of chocolate did you use?
