Eagle Brand provides home cooks with two chocolate fudge recipes made with Borden condensed milk, and Nestle's Very Best Baking website also provides a recipe. One of Eagle Brand's recipes can be made with either regular or fat-free sweetened condensed milk, and the other uses regular sweetened condensed milk.
The Eagle Brand recipes for chocolate fudge can be prepared in 10 minutes and take five minutes to cook. Both recipes use a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. The two recipes are practically identical, except for the addition of nuts. Cooks can choose to melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, instead of using the stove top.
Very Best Baking features an easy chocolate fudge recipe made with Carnation brand sweetened condensed milk. Reviewers give this recipe 4 1/2 stars. In addition to the condensed milk, this recipe includes two packages of chocolate morsels, vanilla extract and walnuts. Easy fudge recipes avoid the hassles encountered when making traditional fudge. One problem that often crops up with classic fudge is grainy texture, which is caused by sugar crystals. Fudge that isn't smooth is the result of uneven heating and a runny sugar mixture. Getting heat temperatures wrong can also cause fudge to be too hard or soft.
