A couple of years ago I decided to try and make fudge for Christmas. For some reason I never figured out, it just would not set and turned into a runny, gooey mess. I was so disappointed with my attempt that I haven't tried making it again.
I've been trying to shake things up in the food department here at home, and have been checking out all of the old Taste of Home back issue magazines from the library lately. I ran across this recipe for 5 minute fudge that looked simple enough, so I decided to give it a whirl. Finally, I got it right :)
1 12oz pk of semi sweet chocolate pieces
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon water
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla
Line an 8x8 pan with wax paper. Place chocolate bits, water, and sweetened condensed milk in a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat until all chocolate bits are melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Pour mixture in lined pan. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Cut into squares. Serve.
