Equipment

  • 8x8-inch baking dish
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • mixing spoon
  • measuring cups
  • offset spatula
  • Measuring spoons

Ingredients

  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Christmas sprinkles

Instructions

PREP PAN:

  • Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly spray it with non-stick cooking spray.

MAKE FUDGE:

  • Add the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips to a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave them on high for 1 minute. Stir. If the chocolate has not fully melted, microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Add the vanilla and stir to combine. Transfer the fudge to the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread it into an even layer out using an offset spatula.
  • While the fudge is still wet, distribute the sprinkles evenly over the top.

CHILL FUDGE:

  • Place the fudge in the fridge to set for one hour.

TO FINISH:

  • Once the fudge is set, slice it into squares and serve.
  • Store any leftover fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Notes

  • You must use sweetened condensed milk in this recipe, not evaporated milk.
  • For a sweet and salty fudge, add ½ teaspoon flakey sea salt on top.
  • If the fudge is too hard to cut, allow it to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. Additionally, running your knife under hot water before slicing will ensure smooth, easy slices.
