|Expressing our chocolate affair while getting some Vitamin D|
I was in NY last weekend making cake pops with mi familia, I miss them very much and to fill that void, I made some chocolate fudge and also I could not stop drooling at these fudge @ Chocolate & Carrots. I always opt recipes with few ingredients, easy methods, and no fancy gadgets and this recipe just fits my style- there’s no need for candy thermometer or heaps or butter & sugar..makes fudging so much easier.
1.5 cups dark chocolate chips
1.5 semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
In a small sauce pan, heat milk and chocolate chips over low heat until it melts completely. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and walnuts. In a 8 by 8 pan (or something with a similar size) place a parchment paper and evenly spread the chocolate mixture. Let it chill for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator or until set and cut into squares and thank the person for introducing chocolate in our lives.
The fudge was very rich and had good ratio of sweet: dark..The key to a decadent fudge is good quality chocolate chips because I have had not-so great experience with supermarket brands. Ghirardelli was my choice of chocolate this time and I loved it..If you are a dark chocolate lover like I am, you could go dark all the way instead of semi-sweet..
Don’t worry, chocolates can certainly be part of our healthy lifestyle..yes- it is coming from a dietitian but remember-everything in moderation
