Difficulty Rating 2
One 12 ounce package of semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
One 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk (save the can)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
I Large package of chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins or dates
Dash* of salt
Enough softened butter or margarine to grease an 8” round cake pan
*A dash refers to the action of one quick sprinkle of salt to the recipe
Grease an 8-inch round cake pan with softened butter or margarine.
1.) Pour the chocolate and butterscotch chips, condensed milk and vanilla into a medium saucepan. Put the pan on the stove and turn the heat to low.
2.) Cover the empty condensed milk can with plastic wrap and put it in the center of the round cake pan.
3.) Stir the chips and milk until they melt together, about 3 minutes. Stir in nuts and raisins. Scoop the fudge into the cake pan all around the plastic-covered can in the center to form a wreath or ring shape. It’s O.K. if it is bumpy on top ~ keep pushing the can back to the center if the fudge moves it. Garnish with walnuts
4.) Put the fudge in the fridge and chill for about an hour. Remove the can from the center & loosen the sides and bottom of the fudge with a spatula.
5.) Cut the fudge into thin slices to serve.
