  1. Sounds good. Do you need to keep it refrigerated?

  2. super fantastic….will be making this all the time….my new go to recipe

  3. Tried the Choc Fudge recipe and it was easy & good. Thanks much

  4. Wow It looks so good and fudgy!  Can you try and make a recipe for me using the microwave and unsweetened cocoa powder instead of any chocolate chips?  I ask because my son ordered me a 6pk of the cocoa from amazon and I need a recipe. You can email me at diabeticsnackerATgmail.com to be sure I see it. I do get your email news.  He was supposed to be ordering me the chocolate chips!

  5. Dear Crissy,
    I use the Borden Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe.
    1 can
    18 ounces chocolate (you can probably get away with less)
    dash salt
    ~ melt and stir ~
    1 tsp vanilla.

    No extra butter, no extra fat and unnecessary calories.

    People call me the “fudge” lady and beg me to bring it to gatherings. Just wanted to let you know that there is no need to add butter.

  6. Just when I’m trying to cut down on sweets…you come up with this simple recipe.
    Maybe I can control myself to make it only when I know a group is going to be around; hmm and maybe not.
