Place the chocolate chips, milk and butter in a microwavable bowl. Melt the ingredients in the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes. Give the mixture a good stir after removing it from the microwave.
Stir the vanilla extract, powdered sugar and salt into the mixture. Stir the nuts into the melted chocolate mix if adding them.
Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Put the pan in the fridge and leave the fudge to chill for 1 to 2 hours. Once it has set, cut it into squares.
Different kinds of chocolate chips can be used to make different fudge flavors. Semi-sweet chocolate chips work well for classic fudge, whereas milk chocolate chips can create a milk chocolate fudge. Flavored chips such as peanut butter can also be added to the mixture.
