Chocolate Walnut Fudge is a classic creamy dessert indulgence that every one loves and appreciates. Ultra smooth, rich and extra chocolately!
Can we talk a minute about pure indulgence? I don’t mean going out and buying yourself a new Lexus pure indulgence, I’m talking about a little one by one square of delicious creamy chocolate goodness. What I’m referring to is Chocolate Walnut Fudge!
As I mentioned in my Turtle Peanut Butter Fudge and my Sugar Cookie White Chocolate Fudge, I have an extreme fondness for those little square cubes of decadent sweetness. It’s honestly one of my favorite sweet treats to make and the flavor combinations are endless!! In the mood for oranges? Make orange fudge … In the mood for peppermint? Make peppermint fudge … In the mood for classic chocolate fudge? Make chocolate fudge and then throw in some walnuts because they are delicious and you deserve happiness!
Look!! Just like that, you just made this amazing Chocolate Walnut Fudge 🙂
But let’s be real … maybe you don’t want to make a whole pan of fudge and then keep it sitting in your kitchen, tempting you with its chocolately perfection everytime you go the fridge for a glass of cold tea. Maybe, just maybe, you are smarter than me and know if you keep it all, you will eat it all! This is where I break in and remind you that almost EVERYONE loves fudge!! This Chocolate Walnut Fudge is the perfect sweet snack to share with neighbors and friends and it is a wonderful surprise to show those in your life that you appreciate them. Want to thank your mailperson for not telling your spouse about all of your Amazon orders that get delivered when he/she is not home? Chocolate Walnut Fudge! Looking for a nice way to say ‘You are the BEST’ to your childs teacher when you know that little Billy kept bringing little frogs to class in his pants pocket? Chocolate Walnut Fudge! Do you want to thank your very conservative neighbors for enduring the month of Halloween when you have an entire haunted house (with sound effects!) on your front yard? Yup, Chocolate Walnut Fudge!
… and maybe a little note with a smiley face on it …..
Any way you cut it, Chocolate Walnut Fudge is a classic creamy decadent bite sized indulgence that just about every one loves and appreciates. So go say thanks to yourself for being a nice person and share the love around!
Enjoy! ~ Heather

- 12 ounces good quality chocolate chips
- 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Line a 9 inch square pan with a piece of parchment paper about 18 to 24 inches in length, leaving the ends out to cover the finished fudge. The ends will also serve as "handles" which will help you lift the fudge out of the pan.
In a double boiler or heat safe bowl over simmering water, combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter, salt and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.
Stir in walnuts and then transfer mixture into the prepared pan
Spread gently until batter is even and then hill in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until the fudge is firm.
Lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into small squares. Enjoy!
