Summer is here. I do enjoy entertaining but I don’t enjoy heating up the house any more than it already is in the summer. Crockpots are an awesome way to get things cooked without adding tons of heat to your kitchen. We were grilling yesterday. I decided I was going to make a few things to go along with our meal, and that I was going to make them in a crockpot. I made some fudge, two different kinds. I’m sharing the recipe for one today, and will share the other tomorrow. The recipes can easily be doubled, no extra steps needed except for doubling everything. Once cooked, the chocolate fudge was sweet and reminded me a bit of pudding. Once refrigerated and set it tasted just like fudge I’ve had from some stores. Here’s how I made it.
- 1.5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 7 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 tablespoon salted butter
Spray the crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.
Place all ingredients in the crockpot and stir.
Cook on high for 1 hour, stirring at about 20 and 40 minutes.
You’ll know the mixture is ready when it’s thick and there’s no whole chocolate chips left.
Place parchment paper in your baking pan. I used half of a disposable 12×8 foil pan.
Pour the mixture into the pan and refrigerate for at least 2-4 hours.
Remove the pan from the fridge and cut into bite sized pieces.
Serve with your favorite beverage (I recommend really cold milk or coffee) and enjoy.
