Total Time


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup milk

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Line 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Grease foil with butter.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, milk and chocolate chips in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 2-3 minutes or until butter and chocolate chips are melted.

  3. STEP 3

    Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Spread into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate 1-1 1/2 hours or until firm. Lift fudge out of pan, using foil ends; cut into squares.

Tip #1

You can easily place aluminum foil into the pan by first tearing a piece that is larger than pan. Flip pan over and shape the foil over outside of pan bottom. Gently lift foil off pan. Turn pan over and place foil into pan. Be sure to leave an extra foil overhang to help lift fudge out of pan.

Tip #2

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