If you are still looking for a last minute Valentine, I have found an EASY one. I can not remember where I saw it first, but as soon as I tried it I started thinking about variations.
2 INGREDIENT FUDGE
2 cups (1 bag - 10-12 oz.) chocolate chips
1 can chocolate fudge canned frosting (NOT WHIPPED)
In a microwave dish, layer chips and microwave 1 minute. Stir. Microwave another minute and stir in your can of frosting. Stir well, scrapping the sides, until fudge is smooth and the gloss is gone.
Spread in a greased (about) 8x8 dish. (Can be lined with sprayed foil.)
I made this Saturday for a basketball game. It was a hit. A BIG hit. (I know, it sounds weird.) When I brought the fudge out, I just said it was a new recipe-no details. People commented on the flavour and smooth texture..
As I looked into other ideas I saw that some people suggest adding a pinch of salt and 1/2 tea. vanilla
for added depth.
Some suggest after melting the chips, that you melt the frosting, also. (It will set up.)
I used 2 ingredients and it was great. (And it is cheaper than the chips, evaporated milk, sugar, butter, marshmellow cream... that I usually use.)
NEVER USE WHIPPED FROSTING!
Ready for just a few variations?
Milk chocolate chips/Cream cheese frosting
Milk chocolate chips/German chocolate frosting
Peanut butter chips/Chocolate frosting
Peanut butter chips/ Vanilla frosting
White chocolate chips/Vanilla frosting
Now, think add ins ;) Nuts. dried fruit, 2 layers of different kinds of fudge, coconut...
I found some ideas at www.nancys-kitchen.com/fudge-recipe-variations.htm.
Do you already have everything you need to make this Valentine treat? If you try this, tell us what you make.
And, have a great day!
