3 Ingredient Fudge

fudge, Christmas treat, chocolate, candy cane, treat, sugar
So, not to brag or anything, but I think I made some pretty great fudge last night. I was shocked. Normally my chocolate seizes (becomes a hard and crumbly mess) whenever I try to melt it, so needless to say, I did a happy dance when I did not ruin my chocolate and the fudge turned out beautifully. Plus, fudge. So why not do a happy dance?

The best thing about this fudge is that it requires only 3 ingredients, but you can add anything else you'd like to it.  You'll need 3 cups of chocolate chips, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and 2 cups of marshmallows.
First things first, place a sheet of parchment paper in a small 8x8 or 9x9 pan.
Second, combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and marshmallows in a stove top pan and turn heat on low. (I turned the nob on my stove to 2 1/2-3.)
Third, stir your mixture constantly so the chocolate won't seize. It took about 5 minutes for everything to melt and combine, but my Christmas music playing in the background kept me sane. ;)
 Fourth, I poured the chocolate mixture into my pan and spread it into each corner. I then threw some candy canes in my food processor and sprinkled the pieces on top. (You could use nuts, toasted coconut, toffee pieces, other candy, etc.)
Fifth, after letting the pan sit in the fridge for an hour, I pulled it out and cut the fudge into pieces. I found that it's much easier to lift the parchment paper out of the pan before cutting it. :)
Lastly, share that kick-A fudge with everyone and anyone you know! Nothing says "Happy Holidays!" like a heavenly piece of fudge.

Ingredients:
3 c. chocolate chips
1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
2 c. mini marshmallows
2 crushed candy canes, or other desired topping

Directions:
1. Place a sheet of parchment paper in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan.
2. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and marshmallows in a stove top pan and turn heat on low. (I turned the nob on my stove to 2.5/3)
3. Stir your mixture constantly until everything is melted.
4. Pour the fudge into the pan and spread it into each corner. Before it starts to cool, sprinkle on your desired topping.
5. Let the fudge chill in the fridge for an hour. Cut into pieces and enjoy!
