Super Easy Christmas Fudge

I wish I could remember where I picked up this Super Easy Christmas Fudge recipe, but boy is this my new favorite recipe to make, especially when I am wanting a treat.   The original recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, but I use sweetened condensed coconut milk, which, of course, eliminates dairy.  Sweetened condensed coconut milk can be purchased at most health food stores, but I make my own, which saves money, and it helps me control the amount of sugar.  It is very easy to do, using a can of full-fat coconut milk and 1/4 cup honey, cooked down about 1/3 in volume.   It is a sweet and delicious treat!

If you are trying to keep this fudge sugar-free, I recommend Lilly’s chocolate chips.  They are sweetened with stevia, and work well in recipes.

Ingredients:

1 can of sweetened coconut condensed milk (or 1 3/4 cup homemade )
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Lilly’s brand)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Directions:

  1.  Oil a square pan, including sides.  Set aside.
  2.  Place chocolate chips, honey, and condensed milk in pan and heat gently, until melted and smooth.  Stir frequently.  Be careful so as not to allow milk to boil over.  TIP:  A wooden spoon placed across pan keeps liquid from boiling over.
  3. Let sit for one minute.
  4. Add vanilla extract.
  5. Pour fudge into greased square pan.  Refrigerate, until cool.  Cut into squares.
