Chocolate Fudge with Walnuts

by Laura on November 24, 2010

I have it in my head that I like fudge.  I mean, shouldn’t I like fudge?  So when we are traveling and I see a fudge shop, we usually pop in and buy a little slab or two.  I’m inevitably disappointed.  All the fudge I’ve tasted is grainy, overly sweet, and has the texture of aged wallpaper paste.   I think I’ve finally figured out that I don’t like fudge, I like my mom’s fudge.  And so does she.  I once called her and she told me that she was having a pan for dinner.  She was kidding, of course, about the whole pan thing.  But it’s good enough to eat the whole pan.  And once I’ve made it, I have to practice serious restraint.  The funny thing about this fudge is that it really shouldn’t be this good.  It’s made with Nestle chocolate chips, not a particularly delicious chocolate, but it comes together with the sugar and milk and butter and vanilla and it’s pretty incredible.   And it takes only about ten minutes to make.

Do you think these would be good without the walnuts?
