I saw this cinnamon chocolate fudge recipe being made by Giada while on the working out on the elliptical.  Do you know that when you watch a recipe on TV while working out, you burn more calories?  If you don’t believe me, google it. For real.

This recipe is so easy.  When you are in a hurry and you need to whip up a sweet treat, go for this cinnamon chocolate fudge recipe.  The cinnamon gives a great bite to the sweetness from the chocolate and the sweetened condensed milk.  I made these as a treat at our Super Bowl party.  There were some leftovers.  So I brought them into the office.  Can I tell you how fast they went.  They’ll eat anything at the office.

Ingredients (Adapted from Chef In You & Giada):
  • 1 – 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bittersweet (60 percent cacao) chocolate chips – Ghirardelli
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature

Melting ingred 500
Put the bowl on a pot of barely simmering water and mix until the chocolate chips have melted.

Keep cooking until the mixture is smooth.  This should take about 6 to 8 minutes.  Spoon the mixture into a lined and greased 10″ X 8″ The lining is parchment paper.  Roughly smooth the fudge with a spatula.
Setting fudge 500
Cover the pan with a long enough piece so you can lift it out of the pan using the parchment paper once it has set. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.  It took me little more than that to set – I think about 3 hours.  Once set, cut the fudge into small pieces.
