Easy Butterfinger Fudge

Ever have one of those nights you just really want something sweet? Or last minute guests you need to make a dessert for? Or a bake sale you were informed about the night before about? Here is a great solution, fudge. 

Makes 32 1" squares
Full time 40 minutes (includes setting time)

The needs-

2 12oz bag chocolate chips  
2 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cup chopped butterfinger bars
1 tsp vanilla extract

The know-

In a microwave safe bowl place 1 bag chocolate chips and 1 can sweetened condensed milk.

Microwave for 30 seconds.

Stir vigorously to create a smooth and even texture.

Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment and spray lightly with cooking spray or lightly grease with butter.

Pour fudge mixture into pan and spread out even with a spatula.

Spread across 1 1/4 cup butterfinger pieces.

Repeat with remaining chocolate chips and condensed milk and spread across top.

Sprinkle across last of butterfinger bars and gentle press down to ensure they stick into top of surface.

Place in freezer for 40 minutes.

Gently remove fudge by lifting up on parchment.

Place fudge on a cutting surface and slice into squares.

Fudge should be kept at room temperature for up to one week.

If desired fudge can be wrapped and frozen for future enjoyment, allow fudge to come to room temperature before serving. Cheers!
