A little chocolate inspiration on Valentine's Day. Well it is still Valentine's Day, if you count 10:30 at night and besides chocolate is just as good on President's Day or any day for that matter. I had really good intentions of posting this earlier in the week, but the Mom part of my "Work at Home Mom" job title took precedence over the work part. That can easily happen when you have three snow days in one week. Forecast for tomorrow = Snow day #9! (President's Day would have been makeup day #1).
So if you are snowed in tomorrow or just enjoying President's Day at home you can make the easiest fudge in the world from these simple ingredients. You can change it up if you like. Use milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips. Leave out the salt if you want or add nuts or chopped peppermint candy.
All you need to make this amazing fudge is chocolate chips (I mix semi-sweet and milk chocolate), sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and fresh ground sea salt. You simply heat the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk until melted together, then stir in the vanilla until smooth.
Spread fudge into a foil lined square baking pan, grind sea salt over the top, then refrigerate for a couple of hours until firm.
Lift the block of fudge out of the pan with the foil and then peel the foil off. Cut into squares with a large chef's knife.
Now go make some fudge and share it with someone you love. It's still Valentine's Day for another 38 minutes. Or if you are smarter than me, get some sleep and make President's Day fudge tomorrow.
