Non-blogging Alica, of Toffee Crack and Santa Fe Soup fame, as well as my Chick-fil-a partner in crime, shared this seemingly impossibly easy fudge recipe with me as we sat chatting in beach chairs in the parking lot.
Two ingredient fudge.
She promised me it was really, really good.
Like from the fancy fudge store at the mall, good.
So, being the
sugar and chocolate fiend skeptic that I am, I decided to try it out.
Pour chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl.
Microwave in one minute intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
Pour entire frosting tub into melted chocolate. Stir to combine.
(I also added a pinch of salt and a splash of vanilla to make the frosting taste a tiny bit homemade. It is a great trick anytime you use a tub of frosting. So I guess technically this is now four ingredient fudge. Semantics.)
Put bowl back in microwave and cook for one more minute. Stir thoroughly.
Then pour in to a greased or wax paper lined 8x8 pan.
Pop the dish in the fridge to chill and set.
I am a wholly admitted frosting snob. I honestly didn't think that this fudge would be anything like my favorite fudge recipes, and I feared it would taste all chemically, and a bit too much like tub frosting.
Wow. I was wrong. So wrong.
It is rich and creamy, the texture is phenomenal, not dry in the least. It tastes homemade.
Now I wish I didn't know how good it tastes and how easy it is to make.
Because give me five minutes and my power to avoid sugar suddenly dissolves in to nothingness.
Next up? Chocolate frosting and peanut butter chips, or lemon frosting and vanilla chips, no wait, Funfetti frosting and white chocolate chips, chocolate frosting, milk chocolate chips, chopped up Skor bars sprinkled on top.... Need I go on?
What combos would you try? Where was this easy-peasyness back during Christmas cookie exchange time?
