THE PARTY GIRL DIET’S SKINNY FUDGE
Prep Time: 10 Minutes. Makes about 2 pounds of fudge (28 servings)
3 cups (18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips (There are sugar free chocolate chips available if you want to control your sugar intake, however the sweetened condensed milk in this recipe, although fat free, does contain sugar)
1 (14 ounce) can Eagle Brand, or other brand variety of Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Dash of salt
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
To make The Party Girl’s Skinny Fudge:
1. Combine chocolate chips, fat free sweetened condensed milk, and salt in a heavy saucepan, and cook over low heat until chips are completely melted, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Spread mixture evenly into a wax paper lined 8 or 9- inch square pan. This is an important step as the fudge will stick to the sides and bottom of the pan and will not come out smoothly without a fight otherwise!
You can also use saran wrap’s “cling” wrap, which is what I used to make the fudge in the photo above.
2. Chill 2 hours or until firm, Turn fudge pan upside down onto cutting board, and peel off the wax paper. Cut into squares, and arrange on a party dish, or in a gift box for giving. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
Variations: Be creative – while the chocolate mixture is still warm from the stove – mix in some walnuts and mini-marshmallows (pictured above) to make a Rocky Road variety, or add some crushed candy canes for a fun and festive holiday version!
You can have all of the ingredients to make this fudge recipe in at all times so you can whip up a batch of delicious Party Girl Diet Skinny Fudge to bring along to those last minute party invites as a yummy hostess gift everyone will love!
Craft stores sell plain white candy boxes that can be personalized with a special sticker or fancy ribbon, which will add an elegant touch to your gift for giving.
You can also make this fudge recipe in the microwave, yet be sure to use a *glass bowl, not plastic and only heat to melt chips a few minutes at a time, stirring after each time, to be sure you do not burn the mixture.
*For health reasons – you should never cook with plastic containers in the microwave.
The Party Girl’s Skinny Fudge – while lower in fat and containing dark chocolate that offers health benefits from the flavonols, should not be considered a diet food.
In general, it is a good practice to substitute lower fat, fat free, and natural sugar free options for the full fat and high sugar ingredients in your recipes, which will help cut down your consumption of fat, sugar, and in some cases calories as well, which will allow you to enjoy more of the foods you love with less of the guilt!
