Ingredients

Butter, for greasing the pan

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pound (about 2 cups) bittersweet (60 percent cacao) chocolate chips (recommended: Ghiradelli) see Cook's Note

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature

Kosher or flake salt, optional

Directions

  1. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 by 8-inch baking pan. Line the pan with a sheet of parchment paper, about 14-inches long and 7-inches wide, allowing the excess to overhang the sides. Set aside
  2. In a medium glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the condensed milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir in the chocolate chips and butter. Put the bowl on a saucepan of barely simmering water and mix until the chocolate chips have melted and the mixture is smooth, about 6 to 8 minutes (mixture will be thick). Using a spatula, scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
  3. Run a warm knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the fudge. Remove the fudge to a cutting board. Peel off the parchment paper and cut the fudge into 1-inch pieces. Store refrigerated in an airtight container or freeze.

Cook’s Note

The fudge can also be made using 1 pound (about 2 1/2 cups) of semisweet chocolate chips.

Hands down the best fudge EVER!! Just melts in your mouth, so creamy and don't skip the salt it adds such a happy twist to the average fudge! It turned out perfect every time I made it! (Which was about 8 times for Christmas!) Everyone begged for the recipe!
