Recipe Notes

Sharon’s Expert Tips:

For the best texture, be sure to slowly melt the chocolate into the mixture using a double boiler or glass bowl over a small pot of simmering water. Heating the chocolate too fast will result in grainy fudge. Alternatively, you can also microwave the mixture in 30-second increments, on medium heat until the chocolate chips are melted.
