There is something to be said about a quick sugar fix in the afternoon or after a meal. It doesn’t have to be anything you spend hours preparing, but it has to be decadent. This Chocolate Fudge with Sea Salt is one of those quick desserts or pick-me-ups that can satisfy any sugar craving.
This fudge is quick, easy and definitely decadent!
It starts with a bowl of chocolate. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and a bar. I would have used all chocolate chips but didn’t have enough so I grabbed a chocolate bar.
I double boiled the chocolate with some butter, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk.
I poured the melted chocolate into an 8×8 baking pan with some parchment paper. I made sure the top was smooth before adding the sea salt.
It needs to spend about 2 hours in the refrigerator so it can set and harden. Once it was done, I cut it into small pieces. I love the idea of being able to just grab a small piece to get a chocolate fix.
Each bite is filled with chocolate and sea salt — the perfect combination.
I also love the idea of packaging these fudge bites as a gift.
