Carla's Christmas Fudge

Note to self: Make Carla's fully customizable, super easy, Christmas fudge this year.

3 c. chocolate chips (dark, semi-sweet, milk, white, your choice)
1 300ml can condensed milk
1 t. flavoring (vanilla, almond, peppermint, maple, rum, orange, etc.)
(optional: 1/2 c. chopped nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, crushed candy cane pieces)

Melt chips & milk together, then quickly stir in the flavoring and any optional ingredient (it begins to thicken quickly) and press into a 8x8 wax paper lined pan. Let set, then cut into 1 inch squares. Keep stored in an airtight container.

Carla's customized blends:

dark chocolate & almond flavoring - no nuts
white chocolate, maple or rum flavoring & raisins
milk chocolate, orange flavoring & dried cranberries
