I am a true chocoholic. So, with the holidays rolling (and I may be soon) around I thought why not make some homemade holiday goodies? So, I did.
Here's how I made it.
1 package of Nestle's semi-sweet morsels
1/2 cube of butter
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon of orange extract
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
(Just put it all together in a pyrex bowl and microwave until well-melted. Stir it up until it is smooth and glossy. Then pour it in a well-greased glass baking dish and chill) I cut little circular shapes and slipped them into mini-muffin tins to give as gifts.
This makes yummy fudge and it only takes a couple of minutes. A couple of important tips though for all you "new" bakers and creaters. You need to cut the chocolate when it's only lightly chilled and then let it chill over night before you remove the candy. If you don't do this step I'll show you what happens:
You can get the mini muffin tins (candy papers) at your local grocery store. I use wax paper between the layers of goodies.
