Traditional Fudge recipe condensed milk
It lends its rich, creamy texture to this traditional holiday fudge!
I already shared my favorite raw nut-based fudge recipe earlier this year, so consider this a more traditional option for those who can’t tolerate nut-based desserts. Or, for those of you who just prefer a smoother, creamier fudge. Featuring heart-healthy fats from coconut oil, and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, this is the type of fudge I feel good about serving to my friends and family in this holiday season.
Traditional fudge recipes calling for sweetened condensed milk often call for semi-sweet chocolate chips, as well, creating a confection that is too sweet for my tastes. I prefer to use unsweetened baking chocolate instead, then add a little extra honey into the homemade sweetened condensed milk, for a naturally-sweetened treat. Alternatively, you could use 70% dark chocolate and omit the honey from the condensed milk, for another lower-sugar option.
Whichever method you choose, you’re in for a treat!
