Nutella Fudge Candy


If I were handing out awards to the contents of our pantry, sweetened condensed milk would definitely get an MVP.  Hmm...I’m loving this idea, actually. Seth, Max and I could get all dolled up, head to the kitchen with stacks of envelopes, and announce winners for awards, like the people's choice award for favorite vegetable, or most improved in pasta... Anyway, sweetened condensed milk always comes through.  You can turn it into dulce de leche (and put it on anything and everything – ice cream, cookies, these rice krispies treats). It can make an awesome pumpkin pie filling, and it makes super easy candies.  Combining it with cocoa powder and Nutella (Nutella would totally be in the running for an award as well – best in spreads/condiments perhaps) makes for some fun and chocolaty goodness.  Yay for sweetened condensed milk!

Ingredients 
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons Nutella
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
bowl of chocolate sprinkles

Instructions
Combine cocoa powder, Nutella, butter, salt and condensed milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring continuously, until mixture becomes super thick and pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest until cool enough to handle. Spray some cooking spray on hands and form into small balls. Roll the balls in the bowl of chocolate sprinkles.

  1. I love the idea of awards. I think flour would have to be on my list for least glamorous but most used.

  3. I could probably just keep dipping my finger into the sweetened condensed milk until it was all gone. I heart that stuff.

    Also, my kitchen award goes to canned tomatoes and chicken broth. Hands down!

    And finally, YUM!

  6. Holy crap!!! These look AMAZING! Yummmmmy! :)

    I agree - sweetened condensed milk is fantastic. I love making toffee bars and they have two tins of sweetened condensed milk. Probably not the healthiest, but sooooo good :) *hehe*

  10. Ha-love the awards idea! We have some stuff that goes fast and some that I think no one wants.
    Anyhow this candy looks tasty. Come to think of it my Easter did not include any Nutella, so it would be a great idea if you sent these here. Fed ex please!
