This Christmas, I discovered a really great new fudge recipe--it's so much easier than the ones I've used before! It involves absolutely no stirring and stirring and stirring over a hot stove :-) Check it out!
1 pkg (8 squares) Baker's semi-sweet baking chocolate, divided
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, divided
1/3 cup water
1 pkg (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding
3 cups powdered sugar
Microwave 4 of the chocolate squares, water, and 6 Tbsp of butter in large microwavable bowl on high for 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir. Add dry pudding mix; stir until well blended. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, stirring until well blended after each addition. Press into foil-lined 8-inch square pan. Microwave remaining 4 chocolate squares and 2 Tbsp butter in large microwavable bowl on high 1-1/2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spread over pudding mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Remove foil and fudge and cut into squares. Makes 36-48 pieces.
