Get festive with Halloween-inspired fudge

Everyone knows that Halloween means chocolate. And fudge is a great way to take advantage of the holiday. This recipe is probably the easiest way you can make fudge, unless you have a 3-D printer that prints fudge. Get a little fancy and pipe some white chocolate spiderwebs on it — it is a holiday after all.

Ingredients:

12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup white chocolate chips

Materials:

1 small pot

8 in. x 8 in. pan

Plastic wrap or parchment paper

Small Ziploc bag

Directions:

1. Prepare your pan by lining it with parchment paper or plastic wrap.

2. In a small pot over medium heat, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. At this point, you may add various ingredients to make different flavors of fudge — vanilla extract, a tablespoon of ground coffee or espresso, crushed Oreos or whatever else you’d like (as long as you don’t add more than a teaspoon or so of liquid).

3. Once the chocolate chips have completely melted into the sweetened condensed milk and formed a homogenous mixture, pour into a prepared pan. Set in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

4. Remove the fudge from the fridge. Score the top of the fudge into a 4x4 grid so you have a guide for decorating.

5. Melt the white chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then continue to microwave at 20 second intervals until chocolate is melted.

6. Place a Ziploc bag in a cup and fold the edges of the bag out. Scoop melted chocolate into the Ziploc bag, remove from cup and snip off a tiny piece from one corner so you have an opening to pipe out of. Pipe three concentric circles on each piece of fudge, then use a toothpick or tine of a fork and drag through circles to create a spider web effect.

7. Return the fudge to the refrigerator until completely firm, about 1.5 hours. Cut and serve.
