I’m often asked for this recipe, so I figure it makes and excellent second post on my page. With the holidays coming up, who couldn’t use an easy and sure-fire fudge recipe? This makes a very dense, candy-like fudge that doesn’t have the gritty sugar-filled texture of many other recipes and only takes minutes to put together.
Why is it called “Soldier’s” Fudge? This is another thing about this recipe I like. Those of you who like to mail out care packages, take note: According to www.recipestogo.com, “This recipe was very popular during the Second World War when people wanted to ship goodies to their soldiers overseas. It travels well, lasts a long time and contains no sugar as sugar was rationed during the war.”
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 (1 oz) square unsweetened baking chocolate
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
