Chocolate Nut Fudge

Chocolate Nut Fudge

The holidays are coming, and that is the best time of year to make sweets!  One of my favorite sweets is fudge.  There are many kinds of fudge, caramel, vanilla, but the kind I like best is chocolate with nuts.  My chocolate nut fudge is made from scratch and the recipe is pretty easy.  It can be made into bars or balls. Even a novice baker can make this fudge without much trouble, though if you are not experienced at making fudge, I suggest that you get a thermometer.  It is easier to know you are at the right temperature than guess, if don’t have a lot of practice.

This is my favorite thermometer because it’s digital and it’s less than $5.  Now on to the recipe!




  1. Cut chocolate into small pieces
  2. In a saucepan on the stove, combine chocolate, corn syrup and sugar
  3. Stir in milk and pinch of salt
  4. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved
  5. Turn down heat to simmer and cook until the contents are 230 degrees or thick enough to form a small ball
  6. Turn off heat and add butter, stirring until mixed
  7. Set aside to cool, and chop the nuts.  Larger if you are making squares or much smaller if you are making fudge balls.
  8. When the fudge mixture is cooled to 110 degrees, add vanilla and nuts
  9. Stir until the mixture thickens to fudge consistency
  10. If making bars, pour into an 8 x 8 greased pan and press till even
  11. If making balls, form your balls, roll in more chopped nuts if you like but you don’t have to, put balls on a greased cookie sheet
  12. Let cool completely and eat!  Store in an air tight container.  Does not need to be refrigerated.

    Yes…I suspect there’s a reason why some homemade candies call for more than two hands: making them should be part of a party.
