I got this recipe from a church blog my mom has put together. Not only is it really fast (it only takes 2 minutes to cook without the use of a candy thermometer) but I had everything in my pantry that I needed to whip up a little chocolate craving cure. I also want to apologize for another treat recipe post. However, while making desserts less frequently is one way to master your budget, I think it's still important to indulge every now and then. Besides, this is pretty cheap, but yummy!
Fast Food Storage Fudge
1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup butter (one stick, unmelted)
1/4 cup milk (reconstituted powdered milk is fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sift powdered sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add butter and milk. Do not stir. Microwave 2 minutes on high. Stir. Add vanilla, stir. Pour into 8" square baking dish (I lined mine with foil and sprayed it with cooking spray). Refrigerate 1 hour before cutting and serving. Serves 16.
I also added chopped almonds to my fudge (It sounded good and I had some I needed to use up!). You could add any other nut as well- just add it into the fudge when you stir in the vanilla.
