    Oh My Word!!! This is awesome!!!! I did substitute my husbands homemade icing for the canned, but… Oh My! I have made 4 batches in the last 3 days! I am passing it out in my Christmas Goodie Baskets this year. I have made chocolate, peanut butter, and peppermint. I plan on making butterscotch, white chocolate, and cinnamon, also. 10 Stars!!! and 2 Thumbs Up!!! This is definately an addition to our candy file and look forward to thinking up all kinds of flavors to make!

    I make 2 ingredient fudge using 1 recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk and one package of whatever flavor chips I want the fudge to be. Put both in pot and cook until chips melt. Pour into greased 8 inch pan cool and score into serving sized pieces. Refrigerate until fully firm. Makes 2 pounds of fudge. I’ve used chocolate chips, butterscotch and chocolate chips mixed together, white chocolate chips, etc. I’ve also made two different batches and layered it, such as white chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. You can also use a can of sweetened condensed milk if you don’t want to make your own.

    I had to make this from the rav reviews. Cherry chips with milk chocolate frosting. My brother had just been giving me a bad time about frugal buying and purchasing stuff in large amounts when a great deal was found. Got 50 cans of frosting a month ago at $.25 a can. He said I would never use it all up before it went bad. I am trotting over tomorrow with fudge in hand and tell him this is what I am using it all on. I do have a bit of the devil in me at times.

        It does have an expiration date and sometimes you get a greasy film on the top if you wait too long to use it. Although, if you are using it in a recipe like this, it should be fine. I use canned frosting to make my brownies. Dang, I should have entered that recipe lol

    The two ingredient frosting supports “mix-ins” very well. Well drained maraschino cherries are very good with chocolate/chocolate chips. Oven dried, drained crushed pineapple and coconut with white bark (in my area much more cost effective than coating wafers) and vanilla frosting. Raisins with rum flavoring, butterscotch chips very adult tasting.

    Always lots of fun to make

    canned frosting will last longer if stored upside down like yogurt. less air can get in if the product is weighing down the area where the air might get in. yogurt will last many months in the frig if stored upside down.

  6. DeborAnn Ray says

    Just making my daily quick stop by the “site”. My Goodness! I love the recipe for the 2 ingredient fudge–speaking as one who has never in her life made a good batch of fudge!
    Now, Chocolate Chip Cookies…they are so good I make myself forget about all the pans of “fudge” I have ruined!? .
    Going to try this recipe as soon as possible-hopefully by Sunday! It wll make a good sweet for Church meeting.
