Super Creamy, Super Simple Fudge

I made this fudge the first time last year and when I went to make it was surprised I had never posted it on my blog! This is the easiest fudge ever! Two ingredients with a third optional ingredient being an add-in of your choice. I made two kinds of fudge to take to my sister's for Christmas and everyone loved it!! Here is the basic recipe:

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

  3. Hi Terry,

    This looks delicious! I can count the calories already :-) I'm co-hosting this week with Katherine at Thursday Favorite Things. Wishing you all the best in 2013.

  4. Ooh! I love fudge. Thanks for visiting my Diana Ramble blog. I have an appreciation for those who live in their RV. We drove a motor home to Alaska & back in 2010 and it was a whole different experience. I know what goes into living in one!! We sold that RV (only bought it for the trip) and now just own a pop-up, but we do see ourselves being FT RV-ers after the kids are grown. Not sure if you've ever crossed paths with Bob & Linda of Because We Can. We met them up in Canada and have kept in touch ever since. I am sure our paths will cross again one day! I am now following you via GFC & Pinterest!
