1 tub frosting
12 oz pkg of candy chips (such as chocolate, peanut butter, etc)
1 cup of add-ins (such as nuts or dried fruit)
Remove lid and foil lining from frosting and melt in microwave for 30 seconds to one minute, depending on your microwave. Most household microwaves will only take 30 seconds. You want the frosting to be melted enough to be pourable. Then pour the chips into a mixing bowl and melt, again for about 30 seconds to one minute. You do not want the chips to melt completely, just till they have a nice shine. Pour the frosting in with the chips and stir until the chips are completely melted. Stir in your add-ins. Pour into a buttered 8"x 8" pan and place in fridge until firm. Take out of fridge about an hour before serving to make cutting easier. Serve and enjoy!
Here is what I did this time:
fudge frosting + milk chocolate chips + salted and roasted pecans
buttercream frosting + butterscotch chips + salted and roasted cashews
Both turned out very yummy! You can also do layers with this fudge, but you will need to use a larger pan like a 10" x 10". Make your first layer, let it set in fridge till firm. make the second layer and pour over the first. Return to fridge till firm.
One of these I have done before was:
dark chocolate frosting + semi sweet chocolate chips (no add-ins) for the first layer
peanut butter frosting + peanut butter chips (no add-ins) for the second layer
