EASY CHOCOLATE FUDGE







EASY CHOCOLATE FUDGE

This makes the most awesome, quick and easy fudge!  You can definitely play with this recipe.  You can use cooca butter for part of the weight or unsweetened Baker’s chocolate.  You will just need to sweeten to taste.

3 cups sugar-free chocolate chips (750 mL)
  (18 oz; 540 g)  You can find Hersheys at Wal-Mart or
  try Lily's sugar-free chocolate chips (CLICK HERE)
Condensed Milk (see recipe below)

Line 8-inch (20 cm) glass baking dish with parchment paper.  In double boiler, place chocolate chips, and over medium heat melt them.  If desired, leave a few chips not completely melted for some extra texture or add some finely chopped almonds.

Prepare Condensed Milk.  Add to melted chocolate and stir over the heat until all is well-combined.  Spread in prepared baking dish.  Freeze 1 hour and then refrigerate.  Cut into squares.  

Helpful Hint:  If desired, leave in the freezer for a chewier consistency.

CONDENSED MILK
This is the easiest condensed milk recipe.  You don't have to boil and boil stuff on the stove top - just place in blender and blend - done.  Bet you will like it more than regular condensed milk.  It tastes better and the consistency is yummy, thick and goopy like condensed milk should be - no thickeners required either.  Add a little more water if you would like it thinner.

1/3  cup PLUS 1 tbsp boiling water (90 mL)
2 tbsp unsalted butter (30 mL)
2 tbsp regular butter (30 mL)
1 cup whole, OR skim milk powder (250 mL)
  (see coconut milk powder alternative in Helpful Hints)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1/2  cup sugar (125 mL)
3 tbsp powdered erythritol. OR little packet sweeteners equivalent (45 mL)
  (packets - the kind you use for coffee)
1/2  tsp vanilla extract (2 mL)

In blender, combine boiling water, unsalted and regular butter; process.  Add whole, OR skim milk powder, liquid sweetener, powdered erythritol and vanilla extract.  Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally.  

Helpful Hints:  I have not tried it, but there is another alternative to milk powder to bring the carbs down substantially.  Remember, though, when you use the condensed milk it is spread over many servings usually, so that helps reduce the carb count greatly per serving.  Nowadays it is possible to purchase coconut milk powder from Amazon (and this one)...apparently has less of a coconut taste.
