Is Fudge Really More Popular In The Winter Months?
Fudge recipes usually tend to come alive during the Fall and winter months.
Have you ever wondered why it is more prevalent during those two seasons of the year?
From a bit of research I’ve done, it seems that people tend to stay in the comforts of their warm, cozy homes during the cooler seasons.
Because of cooler weather and getting dark earlier in the day, it is natural to think of being bundled up by a warm stove, drinking hot chocolate.
Comfort Foods Come To Play
Who else loves comfort food in the cooler months?
Anything from cheesy casseroles to homemade chocolates and fudge…Mmm!!
There have been studies showing that people eat a little more during the winter. Why?
Well, it’s been said humans go into “winter survival mode” just as many animals do.
Whether you want to believe it all or not, comfort food seems to be more prevalent in these two seasons.
Fudge is always a great treat to have on hand.
It’s probably a good thing we don’t eat comfort food all year.
There are too many delicious calories in those heavy, creamy, cheesy meals and desserts!!
Just 2 Ingredients
Yes, you read that correctly!
This easy fudge recipe only requires two ingredients. Chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. (just be sure to have the condensed milk recipe made up beforehand and you’re good to go!)
Sounds easy enough, right?
What’s better is that this easy fudge is sugar free and low carb!
Bake Believe Chocolate Chips
You can use the latest and greatest sugar free chocolate chips that can be found in mostly all Walmarts now.
They are called Bake Believe and they have three amazing flavors of chocolate chips.
Semi-sweet, dark and white chocolate. They taste amazing and are incredibly convenient for those that shop at Walmart.
Clean & Healthy Sweetened Condensed Milk
The second ingredient in the easy fudge recipe calls for this clean & healthy sweetened condensed milk.
It is made with half & half rather than heavy cream.
If you take a look at the nutritional value, you see that half & half gives you way less calories than heavy cream.
Clean & healthy sweetened condensed milk is still super creamy and cooks the same exact way, just without all the extra calories!
After you make it one time, you will always want to have it on hand!

Do I Have To Add Heavy Cream?
Adding a little heavy cream is optional, but it gives it a bit more creaminess.
If you’re using dark chocolate, it will lighten it up a bit.
