Use your big bag of Costco chocolate chips and you'll save a fortune.
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup add ins-such as crushed peppermints, frozen marshmallows, chopped nuts, dried fruits, chopped cookies, etc...
Line a 8 by 8 inch square pan with foil. Place chips, milk and vanilla in microwaveable medium bowl. Zap for one minute. Stir. Repeat until chips and butter are melted. Stir with wooden spoon until shiny. Add vanilla and any optional add ins. Pour into prepared pan. Chill for at least two hours.
For White Oreo Fudge:
Follow above directions, using white chocolate chips and reducing butter to two tablespoons. Generously grease foil lined pan. Leave out vanilla and add 20 crushed oreos.
My Sailor-girl made chocolate fudge in mini loaf pans to give out to her music teachers. You can get 3-4 little fudge blocks. Wrapped in cellophane with a plastic knife, it doesn't get much cutie-patootier than that. Unless you want to put it in a polka dot ribbon-tied box. That's purdy too.
Hanukkah and hopefully latkes....
