Two Ingredient Fudge

Fudge is a holiday treat staple. My grandma made batches and batches of fudge every year. I remember putting on an apron and helping her cook away until we had trays and trays of different flavored fudges cooling on the counter.

To this day, those memories are my absolute favorite. I treasure those moments, but also dread the idea of cooking fudge. Or, at least I used to dread it. Now I look forward to my holiday fudge creating thanks to THIS very easy recipe.

    Tips and FAQs:

    THE most popular comment I get on this recipe is “Mine turned out lumpy” or “This was hard as a rock! What went wrong??”

    I’m here to answer your question! The simple truth is that you most likely over heated your chocolate causing it to seize. Here’s a quick walk through on how to melt chocolate and get perfect fudge every single time.

    Tips for melting chocolate chips:

    1. Use a double boiler. This is the safest way to avoid your chocolate melting too quickly or getting too hot.
    2. Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir. Continue to heat in 15 second segments, stirring between each, until the chocolate chips are fully melted.
