1 12oz bag of Hershey's (Special Dark) chips...or whatever the hell you like.
1/2 of a 14oz can of Sweetened condensed milk (7oz)..lol
or you can use 2 bags of chips and 1 can of milk, or 6 bags of chips and 3 cans of milk...you get the idea
Okay, double boiler or microwave; the original recipe had me doing it in the microwave. I prefer the double boiler because of better heat control.
Pour chips and milk together
Heat just until it's smooth. I stir it a lot when heating.
If the chocolate looks lumpy just add a little water (I use use rum or brandy!)
For the cherry fudge I add about a teaspoon of cherry extract and about half a jar of cherries cut in half. I drain them, then pad with some paper towel. I usually have to add a couple of teaspoons of brandy.
*He told me before he'd soaked them overnight in brandy. This is my plan.*
After mixing I normally let it cool some in the pan.
I pour it out on parchment paper and work it like they do in Frankenmuth as it cools to make a 'Log' shape..lol
I normally wrap it in the the paper and leave the ends open overnight. The next day it should firm up enough to slice.
That's it, now get off my back!... See you in a few weeks, Your favorite male cousin, ~Brad~ (If I'm not, please don't tell me!)
