There are many reasons why I love Hillbilly Housewife. It got me through the the start of our frugal journey when I wanted to drastically change what we ate but didn’t have the money to go crazy. I also loved the little tid bits you can find on there about how to efficiently run a frugal house. But, first and foremost, I love the recipes. The drink mix recipes got us through a Christmas when we didn’t have much money but were able to decorate mason jars full of mixes.
So, from time to time, I like to read what other viewers are sending in to the site as their favorite family recipes. This recipe for 2 ingredient fudge just blew my mind. I had the 2 ingredients on hand and it was just my luck that they were expired like a month ago! I needed to use them up fast and this didn’t disappoint. I call it 2 or 3 ingredient fudge because I actually added walnuts to mine, but did make a version without nuts and it was just as divine.
2 or 3 ingredient fudge
1 bag chocolate chips
1 can frosting
Line an 8×8 or 9×13 pan with foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.
Place the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir.
If chips aren’t melted yet, microwave for 15 second intervals until they are melted.
Dump the frosting into the bowl of chocolate and stir until fully incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the lined pan and let set for at least one hour( I placed mine in the fridge because I’m impatient).
Take out of foil and cut into squares. Will last at room tempurature for up to 1 week.
The best part is that you can use whatever flavors you want! I used semi sweet chips, milk chocolate frosting and toasted walnuts in one batch and butterscotch chips and fudgy chocolate frosting in another. Chopped up dried cherries would be awesome in this too and maybe chopped apricots! Yum!
