Rosemary’s Quick Black Walnut Fudge

Submitted by: backyardandbeyond on November 9, 2011

A fast and easy fudge recipe with the complex wild flavor of black walnuts.

adapted from a (now forgotten) magazine recipe

Servings: 12-16 squares        


18 oz. semisweet chocolate chips (typically a bag and a half)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
1/2 c. (or more) chopped black walnuts


Melt chocolate in top of a double boiler over hot water. Remove from heat, add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, salt and nuts. Stir until smooth. Turn into a wax-paper-lined 8-inch square pan or pour into a wreath shape onto a wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill. When firm, slice.

Note: Black walnuts have a stronger taste the traditional English walnuts, so you may want to taste before deciding how much to add.
