Here's another fudge recipe that Ellen and I made for our birthday brunch. Crunchy, salty pretzels with sweet and creamy fudge is a great combo and it looks pretty too!!
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups broken pretzel pieces
Lightly grease a 9-inch square pan; line with a piece of plastic wrap, parchment paper, or aluminum foil about 18 to 24 inches in length, leaving the ends out to cover the finished fudge. (The ends will also serve as "handles" which will help you lift the fudge out of the pan).
Heat the condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. This should only take 1-2 minutes. Stir in pretzels. Pour into the prepared pan. Spread gently then cover lightly with the ends of the plastic wrap. Top with more pretzel pieces. Chill until firm. Lift out of the pan and cut into small squares.
