Chocolatety Chocolate Chocolate Yummy Fudge

I made condensed soy milk and fudge for the first time.

Fudge Ingredients
* 2 x Sweetened Condensed Soy Milk
* 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* Optional: 1/2 - 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

Double the recipe for the Condensed milk. It should take about 2 hours of constant stirring to reduce down to 2 cups. For this recipe you only need 1 3/4 cups of the reduced milk, so you have to find something else fun to do with the 1/4 cup leftover. (try pouring "shots" of it and see how many you can do)

While the condensed milk is still hot, combine it with the chocolate chips over low heat. Stir until all of the chips are completely melted.

Take the mixture off of the heat and add the salt and vanilla extract. Mix in the nuts after that is all well stirred if you have them.

Pour into a wax paper lined pan that will allow the fudge to settle to 1/2 - 1 inch deep. Cool in the fridge for at least two hours before cutting it up.


When it says "slow method" it really means it. It took about two hours of constant stirring to reduce the soy milk from 7 cups (6 cups soy + 1 cup sugar) down to 2 cups.
Condensing soy milk - It spins!

It says to use wax paper, but I wasn't sure about how that all works. So I just put the tiniest of tiny bits of oil on the pan before dumping all the hot yummy fudge into it

And after its all cut up

I was amazed by how well it all turned out, and how simple it was even for someone like me who constantly ruins "easy to make" vegan recipes. It seemed like the only dangerous part was in the last 15 minutes of condensing the soy milk. If you don't keep up on stirring it starts to boil which I figure could have made it all go horribly wrong, so I just stirred faster. Also, might be a little too chocolatey, so I'll definitely add a bit more vanilla and add nuts next time.
