...oh, and just because.

(you can fill in a reason, if you feel it necessary).

3 Minute Fudge

(mmm, hmmm. that's right. You're just 3 minutes, and 3 ingredients away from the next jeans size!)

2 bags of chocolate chips (1 semi-sweet, 1 milk chocolate...but I wonder if it really matters?!)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

3 Tbsp. butter (what isn't made better with real butter?!)

dump into a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for 3 minutes. Stir well and spread into an 8X8 pan.

Refrigerate to cool/harden. (or eat a little with a spoon first, if you must. I'm guessing that's possible...not that I'd really know that for sure or anything.)


3 minutes. I promise. It's dangerously delicious!!!

As for me, I would make this with DARK chocolate chips.

If you ever go to Sam's club in Lima or Dayton, they sell 3 pound bags of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Bittersweet chips for $7.98 that are AWESOME. They're nice for a little caffeine pick-me-up in the afternoon. Dark chocolate has lots of antioxidants and I think chocolate is good for your mental health :) But once you have really good dark chocolate it spoils you and you can't eat just any chocolate anymore.

April...yes Dark chocolate...the good stuff. YUM!

I also heard tell of substituting one bag of mint chocolate chips or Andes Mints to get a mint fudge...that wouldn't be too hatey either!

I know how you like to do fun things, and what isn't funner than when you get to eat your projects??? :)

If you use this same recipe, and use peanut butter chips instead, it makes yummy peanut butter fudge (you can double layer it and it tastes like Buckeyes) -- but we like to do that and then cut the fudge into long thin strips......they look like french fries :) -- then fold cupcake papers twice (into fourths) and that can be the fries pouch. It's a fun birthday treat if you're looking for an easy treat that is a little different (you can serve that with the mini hamburgers -- a thin mint cookie between two vanilla wafers add colored frosting for the ketchup and mustard).

A definite favorite at our house! But not very often!!! :)

OMG Pam!!!
I'm lovin' it!!!

I will definitely have to give this a try sometime. (both the peanut butter, and the burgers and fries!)

hmmmm....maybe as a fun "special meal" when the new baby arrives...

...or shoot...maybe this weekend! Why wait?!
