How To Make christmas fudge

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375* Line 9" square pan w/ foil (...if you ever want to be able to cut these into squares!) Blend graham crumbs & sugar; Add butter & press into 9" square. Bake for 7-9 min. & remove when the crust 'smells' toasted & is lightly browning. PS- you can turn the oven off here.
  • 2
    Beat Cream Cheese & vanilla extract together in large (mixer) bowl. Set aside.
  • 3
    Melt Chocolate chips w/ eagle brand milk in microwave-safe (6-c.) bowl, stirring every @ 1 min. until 100% melted. Blend thoroughly.
  • 4
    Fold chocolate-milk combo into cream cheese bowl. Will begin to thicken/ get firm in bowl. Immediately transfer to pan w/ crust. It is best to pour over very center of pan & spread to edges to avoid wrecking the crust.
  • 5
    When pan is safe to touch w/o hot pads, place in fridge to chill before slicing. Remove whole block from pan (via foil) & slice into 1" squares w/ long, narrow sharp knife dipping in warm water if it gets too sticky.
