In fact, fudge came in long before you could ever imagine. According to Wikipedia:
“Fudge originated in the US during the late 19th century. Recipes were printed in many periodicals and advertisements during the 1880s.”
“Fudge shops in tourist places such as Mackinac Island in Michigan began opening during the 1880s. In a letter written in 1921 by Emelyn Battersby Hartridge, she recounts the purchasing of a box of fudge for 40 cents a pound in 1886 in Baltimore, Maryland.”
It’s perfect during this holiday season when kids with a sweet tooth are definitely looking forward to some tasty treats. It’s not only perfect as a dessert but also an on-the-go snack while you are on the road.

This chocolate fudge recipe only requires 2 ingredients!
- 300 grams of dark chocolate (Semi-sweet)
- 400 grams of condensed milk
No need to step out and buy these two, you can easily find them in your kitchen. Just the number of ingredients alone will tell you how easy this recipe is.
No need to be fancy either, the procedure is pretty simple.
Step Number One: Grab a 5 x 7 inches pan then grease it with some oil or melted butter. Put a parchment paper inside and make sure to leave an overhang on all sides, this will make taking the fudge out of the pan much easier.
The easiest way to do this is to cut two sheets of parchment and crisis cross them in the baking dish, using just a tiny bit of butter between the pan and parchment to hold the sheets in place. Also, make sure to butter the corners of the dish to minimize sticking.
Step Number Two: Prepare the chocolate by cutting it into pieces. The written recipe also suggests you can use the same amount of chocolate chips instead as an alternative.
Step Number Three: Place a pan with a heavy bottom over low heat. Then add the 400 grams of condensed milk and the chopped chocolate into the pan.
Step Number Four: Keep stirring the mixture until the chopped chocolate gets completely melted and mixed with the condensed milk. Wait until the mixture becomes thick and smooth.
Step Number Five: Once the chocolate fudge mixture is done, pour it into the prepared pan, and spread it evenly using a spatula.
Step Number Six: Put it inside the fridge for about three to four hours or longer until it’s set.
Step Number Seven: Lastly, if the chocolate fudge mixture is ready, take it out of the fridge and cut them into 8 slices or more according to your preference.
