Walnut Fudge

Walnut Fudge

This easy walnut chocolate fudge recipe is slightly less sweet than traditional. The best part is that this foolproof recipe requires no candy thermometer! Try garnishing individual pieces with a walnut half for a beautiful presentation.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 pound dark or bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 3/4 cup marshmallow crème
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped California walnuts, toasted

Directions

  1. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with foil. Melt butter and sweetened condensed milk together in a large heavy saucepan over low heat.
  2. Stir in chocolate and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 10 minutes or until chocolate has melted.
  3. Stir in marshmallow creme and vanilla and beat with a wooden spoon until mixture is glossy; stir in walnuts.
