This super easy 3 ingredient chocolate fudge is pure chocolate decadence and a Christmas staple in our home.
Growing up one treat that we got to enjoy every Christmas without fail was this 3 ingredient chocolate fudge.This is a recipe that was passed down on my mom’s side of the family and is one that I continue to make for my family. To me, it is not Christmas unless this fudge is made. It is so velvety and chocolatey.
Basically, it’s pure chocolate heaven.
I don’t make a lot of candy. If I am being honest, most candy takes a lot more work than I am willing to do most of the time. This fudge is a different story. This 3 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge is beyond easy to make. And all you need to taste this chocolate lusciousness is 3 ingredients: Dark chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and marshmallow creme.
The hardest part about making this fudge is the waiting. While it only takes about 5 minutes to cook, you do have to wait for it to harden in the refrigerator which takes about 3 hours. 3 hours when you are a kid is so long. I remember after my mom made this I would sneak into the refrigerator to get a taste. I’d have to scoop it out with a spoon because it wasn’t hard enough. It tasted good though!
My little guys can’t quite reach in the fridge yet so I don’t have to worry about them reaching in to get some fudge before it’s done. After it’s done, however, is another story.
Gosh, I love this time of year.
Line an 8 x 8 inch dish with parchment paper.
Heat sweetened condensed milk in a pan over medium-low heat just until thinned, about 4 minutes.
Stir in dark chocolate chips and stir until melted and smooth.
Remove fudge from heat and add in marshmallow fluff. Mix just to combine.
Spread fudge into prepared container. Sprinkle with sprinkles if using. Refrigerate until hardened, about 3 hours. Cut into pieces and serve.
