Foolproof Fudge Cut-OutsThis fudge never fails to set up and is perfect for making fun cut-out shapes to suit the occasion. Recipe includes flavor variations.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 cups (1 1/2 packages, 12-ounces each) HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1/8 teaspoon salt

  1. Line 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan.
  2. Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute; stir. Microwave an additional 15 to 30 seconds or just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
  3. Stir in walnuts, if desired, and vanilla.
  4. Immediately spread evenly in prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
  5. Use foil to lift fudge out of pan; place on cutting board. Peel off foil.
