3 Ingredient Easy Chocolate Fudge
Sometimes the simplest of recipes yield the best results. For those days when the craving for chocolate kicks in, this 3 Ingredient Easy Chocolate Fudge recipe will keep you company. This recipe for fudge candy is a great one because it has only three simple ingredients that yield a classic and decadent dessert you’ll never regret making. The best part about this recipe is that you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen pantry. The only prep work you’ll ever need to do for this recipe is to line a baking pan with some non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper just so that the fudge comes off easily when it’s done. Remember to not replace the condensed milk with evaporated milk as they are two different ingredients. Although they may sound similar, condensed milk is sweetened and is much thicker in consistency whereas evaporated milk is unsweetened and has a thin consistency. To make it slightly healthy, you can add flax seeds, pumpkin or even sunflower seeds to it. You can also use peanut butter chips or Skor toffee bits or even marshmallow fluff to make it a bit more fun. Fudge is one of the most fun desserts you can make especially because there are so many creative variations for making it.
Always remember even though making fudge sounds easy, it still requires a bit of precision to get the right batch of perfect, glossy and creamy homemade fudge. Successful fudge-making requires heating and cooling the mixture to precise temperatures. The secret is in using the thermometer and having the patience to let the fudge cool before stirring. For this purpose, it’s a good idea to invest in a candy thermometer so that you can measure the temperature when aiming to make that perfect dreamy fudge.
As a healthier alternative for this recipe, you can choose dark or bittersweet chocolate chips or the ones that have more than 70% cacao in them in the place of regular ones. Dark chocolate is an excellent source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health and contains fiber and iron. Likewise, if using vanilla flavor in this recipe, it’s better to use the real vanilla beans as opposed to the artificial vanilla flavor. Bakers around the world believe in the science aspect of vanilla and agree that when added to desserts it is more than just a flavor. It brings the ingredients together to make it taste richer and fuller and not to mention the sweet fragrance of real vanilla beans stands out distinctly in dessert recipes. Sure it can be more expensive than the artificial flavor, but it yields a more superior and premium taste especially in fudges and cakes.
