Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

The following is my Wicked Fudge™ recipe. Warning, is also evil and addictive. If you like someone, share.

If you don't like someone, they only get ONE piece! ;)

Wicked fudge:

Inside the USA:

Don't know if the brand names will mean anything at all to you, but here is what I used:

11.5 oz-bag Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Bittersweet chocolate chips  [Dark Brown package] - Follow the links for Products -> Baking -> Baking Chips -> 60% Cocoa Bittersweet chocolate chips...

Plus 2/3 of a cup from a bag of the semi-sweet chocolate chips  (Roughly 35% cocoa content) [Gold package] - Follow the links for Products -> Baking -> Baking Chips -> Semi-Sweet chocolate chips.

1 - 14oz can sweetened condensed milk


Outside the USA*: (I live in Australia.)

326 g  of high quality 60% dark chocolate

167 g  of good quality 'semi-sweet' (at least 35% cocoa) chocolate

1 - 395g can sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon of real vanilla (* see Alternatives below)

(*In Oz, I use 200g of Green and Black's 85% dark chocolate, and 200g of Cocoa Belgium 50% dark chocolate.)


1.  If you prefer 'milk chocolate' over 'dark chocolate' use all semi sweet chocolate chips:  1 - 11.5oz bag + 2/3 cup from second bag, instead of one bag of the 60% dark chocolate chips.]

2.  My definition of "High Quality Chocolate" means the ingredients include cocoa solids, cocoa butter, sugar, and occasionally real vanilla, chocolate liquor, and Lecithin.  It does NOT contain milk, 'vanillin', (artificial vanilla,) or any kind of fat content that is not cocoa butter.)

Combine all in heavy bottomed pot or double boiler,  heat on stove, stirring constantly to prevent burning. [If you use a heavy bottomed pot, use medium heat. If double boiler, get the water boiling, then turn down to medium to maintain the heat while the chocolate melts and all ingredients go Zen on you, becoming one with each other.]

Alternately: combine all in a 4-cup container, and microwave on high for about 3 minutes.

Stir until glossy and no lumps of unmelted chocolate left, then pour into a 9"x9" pan - can help if you line it with wax paper first, or dust it with chocolate powder to prevent sticking.

~ Note on the chocolate powder: I have used straight unsweetened baking cocoa, as well as mixing equal parts unsweetened with hot cocoa mix, [Ghirardelli's Double Chocolate hot cocoa powder or other high quality 'Drinking Chocolate',] and I have experimented with adding a bit of spice, such as cinnamon and nutmeg when making the chocolate/orange fudge. Play with it yourself, and see what you can come up with. Have fun!

Stuff it in the fridge for about 2-3 hours, then cut and serve.

[Wire Cheese cutter works best, knives stick! ...And is like cutting a paving brick]

Alternately, can use bread loaf pans, cool longer.

Or - use spatula to press still warm mix into a cake decorator or cookie press and make individual pieces

- squeezing them out onto sheets of wax paper dusted with powdered baking cocoa and chill for 2 hours before serving.

The new flexible silicone ice cube trays and muffin pans may well work too, for making individual pieces. Probably want to dust them with cocoa too, just in case. ;)


* Alternatives: If you want a flavored fudge, can replace vanilla extract with one of the following [ or invent your own! ]

Pure extracts of:

Cinnamon [Tastes like dark chocolate crossed with Red Hots!]
Hazelnut [Note: Hazelnut is very mild, may only be noticeable in the "Milk chocolate fudge" variant.]


Also, can add various nuts, dried fruits, the zest from lemons or oranges, swirling in peanut butter (see below), mini marshmallows or marshmallow cream, pour over butter toffee... keep warm and dip fresh fruit... [Fudge Fondue!]

I've found a small jar of Skippy's Roasted Honey Nut peanut butter is great to swirl in for marbleized chocolate peanut-butter fudge! Or lay down a thin layer of fudge, refrigerate about an hour, then spread on a layer of warm peanut butter, chill again for about an hour, and top with the rest of the fudge, slightly warmed for spreading.

Just pick 6oz or 12oz jar, depending on how much peanut butter you want.

...oh bother, you get the idea! `/;)

I see your knitting flowers now. Is there anything you can't knit ? Always fun to look at your site. And I'll definitely try out your fudge recipe! Hope everything is going well for you down under. I hear you are having rough weather. Very hot. We are expecting snow on Sunday. And very cold temperatures.
