Decadent Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Fudge is a decadent treat any time of the year but especially enjoyed during the Holidays and  special occasions.  It is a great addition to any cookie or dessert tray. For best results fudge should be prepared in a heavy-bottomed saucepan that is double the size of the amount of fudge you are making and by using a wooden spoon to stir.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Yields: Approximately 30-40 medium fudge squares


10 oz. milk chocolate, roughly chopped
8 oz. dark chocolate (bittersweet), roughly chopped
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 t. pure vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt
3/4 c. walnuts, roughly chopped
Flakey sea salt or Fleur de sel, for topping, to taste


  1. Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with parchment paper, making sure there is enough overhang to cover all the sides of the pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, add both chocolates and the condensed milk and heat over low heat.
  3. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chocolate is mostly melted and the mixture thickens, approximately 5-6 minutes. Most of the chocolate should be melted but some chunks may not be fully melted but will continue to melt from the residual heat.
  4. Remove from heat and add the salt and vanilla extract. Stir well until the mixture is completely smooth and glossy.
  5. Fold in the walnut pieces and stir to combine.
  6. Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle with the desired amount of flakey sea salt and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or until set.
  7. When ready to serve, use the parchment paper to lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into bite-size squares.
