Easy triple-chocolate fudge

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
2 tablespoons Butter or margarine (not spread)
16 ounces (2 2/3 cups) milk-chocolate chips
1 Bar (3 ounces) bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 Bar (3 ounces) white "chocolate," coarsely chopped
½ cup Coarsely chopped toasted walnuts

For two different takes, try the peppermint-stick and the peanut-butter-and-banana versions that follow.

1. Line an 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil or waxed paper, letting liner extend a few inches above pan on 2 sides. 2. Stir condensed milk and butter in a medium-size saucepan over low heat until butter melts. Remove from heat, add chocolate chips and stir until melted and smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in prepared pan and refrigerate 8 hours, or until firm enough to cut. 3. Lift foil by ends onto cutting board. Cut fudge in 1-inch squares. Store airtight with waxed paper between layers.

PEPPERMINT-STICK FUDGE Prepare as above, but use 16 ounces vanilla chips instead of the chocolate chips. Omit the chopped chocolate and nuts. Add ½ teaspoon peppermint extract with the butter. Add a few drops red or green food coloring and stir just until swirled, like a peppermint stick.

Proceed as directed.

PEANUT-BUTTER-AND-BANANA FUDGE Prepare as above, but use 14 ounces (2⅓ cups) peanut-butter chips instead of the chocolate chips. Omit chopped chocolate and walnuts. Instead stir in 2 cups (5 ounces) dried banana chips and ½ cup unsalted peanuts. Proceed as directed. When fudge is firm, melt 3 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips and drizzle over fudge.
