Strawberry Almond Chocolate Fudge

straberry almond fudgeI am heading out to a curling event this evening, and agreed to bring some treats for sharing.  I was feeling lazy today, and not in the mood for anything heavy-duty baking wise.  I checked out the pantry and decided to whip up this quick and easy chocolate confection.  It is not a true fudge in the sense that there are no boiled sugars and what not, but it IS fudgy, and judging by the edges I cut off (and tasted….for research purposes of course 😉 ) pretty tasty.  I also think this would make a nice treat for Valentines Day to share with whoever you like!

  • 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup chopped dried strawberries (I used a kitchen scissors for easier going)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Line a square baking pan with plastic wrap or foil and set aside. Now, you can make this in a double boiler, but the easiest way is to get a microwave safe bowl big enough to hold the ingredients and go that way.  Combine the chocolate, milk and butter in the dish, and microwave it for 3-4 minutes, stopping part way to stir.  Once the mixture is melted together, stir in your strawberries and almonds.  Pour and press mixture into prepared pan and allow it to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before lifting from pan, removing wrap/foil and cutting into squares.  Keep in a sealed container at cooler temperatures.
