Note:  After posting this page, I joined Nancy's newsletter, one of the links posted below for the fudge.  I've enjoyed receiving her daily recipes and wrote her about the fudge and here is what she says, "I usually use the Prepared Pantry Pure chocolate chips and any brand of canned frosting.  I especially enjoy the cream cheese frosting and 12 ounce of pure semi-sweet chocolate.  If you are using the reduced sugar frosting it tends to take more chocolate chips than the usual 12 ounces for it to set up properly."  Don't miss the link below to her fudge page.

Two Ingredient Easy Fudge

When my internet buddy Delores told me that she was making two-ingredient fudge and how easy it was, I had to try it.  It appears to be quite popular as it is all over the web. 

1 (10 to 12 oz.) bag of baking chips
1 can of cake frosting (not whipped)
Pinch of salt (optional)
1/2 tsp. or so of extract (optional)
Add-ins like nuts, crushed candy, dried fruit (optional)

Microwave the chips and frosting in the microwave until smooth.  Microwave 60 seconds and then continue, checking and stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.  It will probably take a couple of minutes depending on your microwave.  When smooth, stir in any of the optionals. 

I used peanut butter/chocolate chips with fudge frosting. It was sinsational and so easy that my daughter helped with different combinations and we put a few on each tray for gifts.  Our favorite is coconut pecan frosting with chocolate chips.

Just think of the combinations.  Also try spreading half into two different pans, letting it set and then spreading a different kind on top for double deckers. Let me know what your favorite combinations are.  Freeze ahead and have ready for any occasion.
