Default Rachal's Rays five minute fudge!

1 package of semi-sweet choc-chip morsels
1 cup of butterscotch morsels
1 can sweetend condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

That is it! Melt together in non-stick pan, takes 5 minutes! Spread on buttered pan. I use the reynolds wrap release foil instead, (easy clean up). Put in frig for 1/2 to 45 mins to set and remove.

Variations: After it all melts add anything you want. Nuts, currants, dried fruit, mint extract, anything! You also can take the empty can, wrap it in plastic and use it as the center and put the fudge around it as it cools. Forms a wreath that you can decorate with red and green cherries. She made this on Oprah if anybody saw that. I made a ton of these and passed them out to neighbors this year already. Put them on a Christmas plate for them to keep.

FYI-I am a chocolate addict and don't like just any fudge. It has to be smooth, rich and melt in you mouth. This passes the test! (The butterscotch is the secret)

Enjoy!

Tbug.......I made 2 of these the other day......the first one like above, except with cherry flavored dried cranberries instead of the raisins.....kidlets don't like raisins. The other one I used the white chocolate morsels, pistachios and dried cranberries. I also added a touch of peppermint flavoring to this one....just a hint of mint. THEN, I cut each ring in half, switched to other half, used some melted chocolate as glue and made a 2 tone ring, then decorated. One will go to each daughter's house....Christmas Eve/Christmas Day.

This is very good for those who love a creamy fudge.......Now I am the opposite of you.......I prefer a sugary/grainy fudge....the old fashioned kind I grew up and out on!!! I suspect that texture came from overcooking.......but I like it that way.

12 oz package of morsels. 14 oz on the milk.

MGram tells of some great variations. Thats the best part of this, you can do anything to it. My family likes it just plan. You can use peanut butter morsels too.

It really is that easy folks. I keep extra ingrediants in the house for those, Opps, I forgot people.

EEEueeeww- grainy fudge? Ok, if you say so.

Yummy sounding TBug and so easy. I sure better not make any of that around here, or I'll make myself sick. Definately a great gift idea. I like Pat's suggestions too.
One question ---if you use peanut butter chips, would you not use the caramel flavored ones? I'm guessing that's how it works.

Thanks for the recipe.
Phyll

I skip the middleman and eat the choc-chip morsels directly from the bag... why dilute it with cond milk and vanilla?

I smell smoke... Oh... nevermind I forgot... I was wearing my corduroy pants...

I make this recipe - I use 3 cups of chips - any variety. Also, I cook it for only at 50% power, stirring half way thru. Made it this way for years!

Thank you Bug for that recipe. I made it last night and it is to die for! I'm making some more today as gifts for Tyler's ex-class (we've been invited to their Christmas party) and for his present workplace. I may even make some more for a house party we're going to on Fri. nite. Just the thing I needed, quick, easy and delicious!

Thought maybe I would get some nice cookie cutters - tin, christmas shaped and pour the fudge in them, then wrap them with cello and a ribbon. I think it would make a nice gift for my neighbors to go with the tins of Chex Mix I give them.

RD-Your welcome, and that is why I posted it. It is the easiest thing and everyone loves it. First year that I made it too, and it's been a real life saver.

Love Christmas cookies, but this is so much easier.

Default Thank You Tina!!

Tina,
Thank you for your recipe. Perfect timing. I have been making Fantasy Fudge for over 20 years but your recipe was easier, faster and cheaper! It is soooo good. I tried it on my son who doesn't really like chocolate or fudge very much and he kept eating it. He really likes the butterscotch kick. I'm going to try peanut butter morsels next and then make plain chocolate fudge. I also agree with you, I prefer the smooth texture too.
Merry Christmas!

Teresa

I have not found a person yet that tried this a didn't prefer it to what they had been making. It really does taste like the fudge you get at a really good fudge shop. It has to be the butterscotch.

All the neighbors called me asking for the recipe so they could make it too. Never had this kind of response from cookies before.

More variations;

White Chocolate Wreath with Pistachio
and Cranberry

Substitute the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips, 1 1/2 ounce bag plus 1 cup.
Substitute 1 to 1 1/2 cups of shelled natural pistachio nuts for walnuts.
Substitute 1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries for currants.
Goober and Raisinette Wreath

Swap butterscotch for peanut butter chips
Swap large whole peanuts for walnuts used in original recipe (such as peeled Virginia Peanuts)
Swap 1/2 cup large raisins for currants in original recipe
