I am a huge chocolate fan. Milk chocolate anything, especially fudge! I have come across a lot of different recipes and tried several. So far, my latest has been the easiest. I tweaked one I found online, and it’s delicious. I couldn’t help but share it with you! Bonus if you are still looking for an easy, last minute Christmas Eve dessert.
If you do not own Pyrex bowls and baking dishes, I suggest you get some. Here is the baking set I have, and I absolutely LOVE! They are SO easy to clean and you can bake and store and then microwave! Pyrex Easy Grab 19-Piece Glass Bakeware Set with Blue Lids. I also have the mixing bowls, which I used today and you can find here Smart Essentials 8-Piece Mixing Bowl Set W/Colored Lids.
Give it a try and let us know what YOU think! What toppings did you use?

I poured the chocolate chips, marshmallows and 1 can of the milk into a medium mixing bowl. Easiest first step ever!
Next, I used a large pot and put water in it and turned the stove burner on. Easiest second step ever!
Next, put your Pyrex mixing bowl over top the pot.
While this is melting, take a brownie pan, I used my Pyrex one, and line it with foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside.
Once the water heats up, your ingredients will start to melt. Stir, stir, stir!
As you are stirring, pay attention to the consistency. It should start to become smooth as you stir. This is where I wasn't getting what I wanted and the second can of milk comes in. I poured a little at a time in-between stirring as needed until I got what I was looking for. I used about half of the second can.
Once everything is all melted and a gooey, you need to pour it into the lined brownie pan.
Smooth it out and make it even, and then take the topping of your choice (or none!) and place on top of the chocolate and push it in a tiny bit so it will stick. I used m&m’s but i have seen people use crushed candy canes, nuts, different candies and even fruits! Don't dilly-dally, the smooth melted goodness starts to firm up quick! Best suggestion is to have everything ready to go before you start melting.
Place in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. When you pull it out, it will be nice and firm. The cooking spray will allow you to basically take the foil out of the pan, turn it over and pop that big piece of fudge out! Now you can let it sit before you cut it, or cut it cold. It will be easier to cut and seems to taste a little better once at room temperature but, I couldn't wait! I cut and ate mine cold!
