How To Make Fudge
If you’ve never made fudge before, you will love how easy it is to make.
For this recipe, Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk is combined with chocolate chips, and they are melted together either on the stovetop or in the microwave.
The mixture is removed from the stove or microwave, and vanilla and peanut butter are stirred in.
Next the fudge mixture is transferred to a pan, and is topped with peanut butter cups, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.
Then it’s into the fridge to chill.
That is all there is to it. It’s hard to believe that something that tastes so good is so easy to make.
