Christmas Traditions

175856340_47f5b9de59Every year since about 7th grade, my dad and I would make Reese’s Chipped Chocolate Fudge. It’s not that it really even took all that much time or work, but it’s a memory that has always stuck in my head and time spent with my dad that I cherish. It’s really cheap to make, easy, rich and tasty. (Actually a bit addictive!) I’m posting the recipe here so you can try it out yourself.  It looks pretty when sliced and cut into squares, giving it a “nutty” look- also great for non nut lovers that still like a chunky texture. It has always gone over great at family gatherings and holiday parties.


1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate, whichever you prefer)

1 bag Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp vanilla extract



In a medium  pot or saucepan on low-med heat, melt chocolate chips, 1 tsp vanilla extract and sweetened condensed milk. Stir continuously until completely melted and smooth. Turn off burner and set aside. Let cool for about 20-30 minutes. It will get a little flaky on top, but that’s ok- stir it a little and mix in bag of Reese’s  chips. Line bottom of square or rectangle pan with parchment paper, which prevents sticking.  Pour in fudge and spread evenly. Chill in fridge until hardened, then cut in small squares. Enjoy!

If you make it, let me know how it turned out and if you liked it!
