Creamy Vanilla Walnut Fudge is this year’s latest addition for your holiday dessert table. Paired with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, a piece of fudge is one of my favorite ways to take a break during the holiday season. If you’re lucky enough to nibble your fudge in front of twinkling Christmas tree lights, that’s my idea of a perfect afternoon.
Continuing with the series of quick and easy fudge recipes, this Vanilla Walnut Fudge comes together in about five minutes. In just a few minutes, you can stir this recipe together and have it chilling in the refrigerator. Within a couple hours, it will be firm enough to slice and serve.
There aren’t many holiday treats easier to make than homemade fudge. I love that I can make plenty of sweets to share while spending the minimal amount of time in the kitchen. For more easy hassle-free treats to share with friends this holiday season, check out this Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge and the Dark Chocolate Almond Fudge. This Salted Caramel Pretzel Fudge is calling my name as is this Amaretto Fudge. Is it possible to have too many fudge recipes? I don’t think so.
PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk, not heavy cream, not half and half, nothing else will work. Trust me on this. ALSO, it is crucial that you weigh the sweetened condensed milk or carefully measure out equal halves of the 14-ounce can. This recipe as written calls for HALF a can of sweetened condensed milk. If you don’t want to measure carefully, just double the recipe and use the full can.
