  • Place all chocolate in a double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Stir occasionally until melted. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract until combined. Mix in the pecans.

  • Spread fudge evenly into prepared baking pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm.

  • Cut into squares using a long, sharp knife. Store in an air-tight container, at room temperature.

Note: We've doubled this recipe to feed a crowd and make an ample amount for holiday gifting. Recipe easily halves if a smaller yield is desired.

Substitute pecans with walnuts if desired.

Bakers Tip: To add a twist on the classic fudge, top with Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares, toasted pecans, or drizzle melted white chocolate on top.
