Easy Chocolate Fudge

Yummy for the holidays or to bring as a gift. You do not even have to turn on the oven!!

Easy Chocolate Fudge

This easy chocolate fudge is a snap to make with sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and a little butter. If you use the microwave to heat the mixture, be sure to stir it frequently until the chocolate has melted completely and the mixture is well blended.
•1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
•2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
•1 cup milk chocolate chips (6 ounces)
•2 tablespoons butter
•1 teaspoon vanilla
•1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional

Lightly grease a 9-inch square pan; line with a piece of plastic wrap about 18 to 24 inches in length, leaving the ends out to cover the finished fudge. The ends will also serve as "handles" which will help you lift the fudge out of the pan.
Heat the condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts, if using; pour into the prepared pan. Spread gently then cover lightly with the ends of the plastic wrap. Chill until firm. Lift out of the pan and cut into small squares
