In this simple fudge recipe, melting the butter is the only cooking you'll do! Confectioners's sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, butter, milk and nuts are combined and refrigerated. Garnish each piece with a whole walnut, or nut of your choice, if desired.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing foil to hang over the edges. Grease the foil.
In a medium bowl combine confectioners' sugar, cocoa and cinnamon.
Heat butter and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When butter is melted stir in vanilla. Remove from heat and stir in sugar mixture and walnuts.
Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
Lift foil out of pan. Cut fudge into 2 inch squares, and then cut in half diagonally to make triangles.
