Super Easy See’s Fudge

Super Easy FudgeIn my never-ending quest to find the perfect fudge recipe (and by perfect I mean it’s easy to make, has a great texture, and is a perfect ratio of chocolate to sweetness. … Is that too much to ask?), I’ve stumbled upon a really good one.  This recipe is supposed to be from See’s Candies, but I can’t verify this claim, so I won’t make it.

Anyway, this fudge is so easy, and it’s so good.  I’ll be making it again, for sure, but I’m still on my quest.  Stay tuned, but definitely make this one.

Line a 15 x 11 inch baking pan with parchment paper. (What that actually means is, lay a piece of parchment across the pan because it won't stay down inside until there's some weight on it.)
