Ingredients

  • 14 Ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 Ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Cups pretzels, chopped

Directions

Prepare an 8-inch square pan by lining it with aluminum foil, set aside.

Combine the sweetened condensed milk and semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on high for about 1 ½ minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the vanilla extract and pretzels, reserving about a 1/3 for the topping.

Pour the fudge into the prepared pan, and sprinkle with the remaining pretzels. Cover and refrigerate the fudge for at least 2 hours, or until it is firm. Then, slice and serve.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
