Course Confections
Servings 30 pieces


  • 3 cups chocolate chips semisweet
  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecans


  • Lightly coat an 8-inch square glass baking dish with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • In a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and salt. Stir constantly to avoid burning the chocolate.
  • Once chocolate is fully melted and ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, remove pan from heat.
  • Add vanilla extract and (if desired) the nuts, and stir until combined.
  • Pour fudge mixture into the baking dish, spreading it evenly.
  • Chill the fudge for 2 hours.
  • Cut the fudge into 30 squares and serve.


  • Other nuts can be substituted for the pecans if desired (or nuts can be omitted completely).
  • If the fudge seems too stiff when pouring it into the pan, add 1 teaspoon of milk and stir completely.
