Chocolate Fudge

Bittersweet chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder give this simple fudge an almost brownie-like flavor. Kosher salt stirred into the fudge keeps our version from being too sweet, while the flaky sea salt sprinkled on top lends a welcome crunch.

How to Make White Chocolate Candies


  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 pound 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped, or 3 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling

How to make this recipe

  1. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with foil, leaving 2 inches of overhang on 2 sides. Grease the foil with the softened butter.
  2. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the chopped chocolate with the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla and kosher salt and place over—not in—a pot of simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth, about 15 minutes.
  3. Scrape the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Sprinkle flaky salt over the surface while the fudge is still warm, so it adheres. Refrigerate the fudge until firm, about 2 hours.
  4. Using the foil, lift the fudge out of the pan and cut it into sixty-four 1-inch squares.

Make Ahead

Cut or uncut, the fudge can be stored in an airtight container for 5 days.
