2 Ingredient Fudge Question
 
Anyone make it? Do you micro both the chips and frosting together? Can I add walnuts too?

I know people who microwave both and some who just do the chips and then stir the frosting into the chips.

It has been my personal experience that melting them together makes a smoother fudge.

Yes, you can add walnuts!

It really is good fudge! Very rich though!

I bought the ingredients and I'm making it for Thanksgiving. I don't know how yet!

Make sure the frosting you use is *not* whipped. Just regular old frosting :D

This 2-ingredient fudge recipe can be made with a can of condensed milk instead of the can of frosting too. Some prefer that recipe a bit more.

I'll be making fudge this way, but think I'll add 1/2 can frosting and 1/2 can condensed milk to the chips and see what that does. (Cuts down a bit on the trans fats of the canned frosting too...)

Let me know how this works! Bought the frosting and chips yesterday to make a trial run today. Will take it to in-laws for Thanksgiving. I was thinking I could make different kinds of fudge and find cute containers at the dollar store to put it in. Yummy but budget friendly teacher gifts!! Publix is always running buy one/get one free on both the chips and frostings!!

I see that a couple here were planning to make it for Thanksgving, tell us how it turned out, ok? Will you make it again? Did you use just one dish to micro it all up?

So I made it for Thanksgiving with 1 container of chocolate frosting and 2 cups of chips. I thought I had the peanut butter chips but got home and they were caramel :cry: I love my peanut butter! I'm not good at following recipes but I just threw the chips and frosting together in a sauce pan and heated it up til it was all melted while stirring it. Took less than 5 minutes. I lined a square pan with foil then greased it with a little melted butter. Then I put it in the fridge overnight to harden.

Well it was very hard to cut right out of the fridge with my big butcher knife so next time I'll take it out awhile before cutting. We all liked it but I think it would have been much better with peanut butter chips!

I did buttercream frosting with heath toffee chips in one batch; white creamcheese frosting with butterscotch chips in another and dark chocolate with dark chocolate chips and added some chopped walnuts to that one.
All turned out very good. The texture is soft, not like a cooked fudge, but refrigerated they're great :)

jandjsmom 11-28-2011 07:17 PM

I did chocolate frosting and semi-sweet chips because that is what I had. We like the consistency, but it was tooo chocolatey! Needed some nuts to cut the sweetness.
I'm with Julie, going to try it with Peanut Butter chips next.

janetsbreeze 11-29-2011 02:53 PM

May I ask for the recipe? I feel kind of silly because it's only two ingredients!!!

Dottie 11-29-2011 03:12 PM

12oz bag of chocolate (or whatever flavor) chips
1 can cake frosting - not whipped

Microwave chips to melt. I did 1 minute, stir then 30 seconds and it was enough. Then stir in the frosting, spread into an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate until hard enough to remove and cut.

Google "2 ingredient fudge" and you will find tons of variations and ideas for add-ins.

Thanks!

Made this today, very good - too good!

Mine turned out a bit grainy like too much sugar, I did use real chocolate chips, but think a bit of butter would of been good or maybe some peanut butter.

Must not worry about the calories!
