1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


Combine butter, half & half and chocolate chips in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring occasionally, until butter and chocolate chips are melted (1 to 2 minutes).

Add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Spread mixture into buttered 8-inch square baking pan. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 1 1/2 hours). Cut into squares.

Recipe Tip

- For easier cutting, line pan with aluminum foil leaving 1-inch overhang on ends. Butter foil. When fudge is set; lift fudge out of pan with foil overhang. Cut into squares.

- To give fudge as a gift, place in new baking pan and wrap with decorative paper or colored plastic food wrap.
