I don't know about you. But when I look at a recipe that give me a list of ingredients where it asks me to use 3 quarters of it, I am bothered of what to do with the leftover.
Buying more ingredients to make double batch? What if you don't want double batch? Throw the leftover away?
Sometimes, the recipes out there could give you more leftover if you buy more to make a double batch.
That was exactly what I stumbled on when I made chocolate fudge the first time. So, here I am sharing with you my twisted easy chocolate fudge recipe that you will not run into these problems I mentioned earlier.
On top of that, I use a very cheap ingredient with a very long shelf life to help you tie the party theme together.
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 can (5 ounces) Evaporated milk
2 tablespoon Butter
1/4 teaspoon Salt
5 1/4 ounces Mini marshmallow (half a bag of the regular size of mini marshmallow which is 10.5-ounce bag. Use the other half of the bag to make second batch of this easy chocolate fudge or check out some ideas of how to switch up 1-2 ingredients to make a different flavored fudge to wow your guests. If you won't use the leftover immediately, store it in the freezer. Marshmallow will get back to room temperature in less than 10 minutes)
1 bag (12 ounces) Semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (any kind; optional)
Sprinkles (per your preference or party theme)
Sprinkles are my staples in my pantry. It is affordable and has relatively long shelf life.
You can find any color, theme and size of sprinkles in the grocery stores easily. I always shop for the package during the holiday seasons where they have 4 different color themes and shapes. This allows me more options to choose from.
The easy chocolate fudge picture I have here is for Thanksgiving theme. So, you see the orange and brown. If it is for a child's birthday, you can use the "candy" sprinkles which is rainbow in color.
You can even use the “Nonpareils” for baby shower, birthday party and so forth. This little touch will impress your guests incredibly. At the time of writing this recipe, I
found sprinkles in silver, gold, snowflakes, flowers and so forth. You can literally use sprinkles to tie into any party theme. Attention to detail.
This easy chocolate fudge recipe is very versatile. How? Switch up the extract flavor and make a totally different fudge, such as mint chocolate fudge, peppermint chocolate fudge or orange chocolate fudge.
The following are some ideas for you to wow your guests. If you happen to have some of these additional ingredients on hand, use them. Otherwise, stick to the goal of this easy chocolate fudge recipe…no ingredient leftover goes to waste.
