We had a very special birthday in the office this week and her favorite treat is fudge. I was going to purchase some at the local market but I ran out of time before it closed. Turns out it worked in my favor. Afterall homemade is alway better
Yields: 63 pieces
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of milk chocolate, coarsely chopped ( I used daffins family favorite)
1 package (11 ounces) of peanut chips and chocolate chips combined (Tollhouse)
2/3 cup chopped finely werthers cooking caramels
1 cup roasted salted peanuts, finely chopped
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (penzeys)
Prework: Prep a 9 by 9 ban with foil. Spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
1. Place the first 4 ingredients in a microwavable safe bowl (preferably glass). Microwave for one minute and stir with silicon spatula. Repeat in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted throughout.
2. Once all the chocolate is melted add peanuts and vanilla to the mixture. Stir to combind and pull the batter into the prepared pan. Cover the fudge with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Remove the fudge from the pan and set on cutting board. Cut into desired size pieces and enjoy. I wanted to present them in a fashionable way so I placed them in mini cupcake paper cups.
For optimal results store in a sealable container and chilled in the refrigerator.
