If you’re like me, you’re stressed about midterms and wanting to drown your sorrows in something decadent. Forget the Zaya cookies, and try this super-simple three-ingredient fudge.



1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup milk chocolate chips

A pinch of salt



Place condensed milk and chocolate chips into a small saucepan.

Add a pinch of salt, and stir so the milk coats all the chocolate.

Melt over low heat until it’s thick and glossy.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try mixing in other ingredients like walnuts, mini marshmallows or making a graham crackers crust. Rocky road, anyone?

Line a nine-inch square baking pan (or anything with a rim) with foil, leaving a few extra inches hanging over opposite sides to use as handles to pull out the cooled fudge.

Pour the mixture into the pan and smooth it out.

Put it in the fridge for about 3 hours.

Use the foil handles to pull out the fudge, and resist the urge to take a huge bite out of the entire block. Or don’t resist.

Cut it up, and enjoy a moment of bliss before getting back to the grind.


Good luck!
