Prep Time:


  • 2 cups (12-ounce package) semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa


  1. Microwave chocolate morsels in a 2-quart glass bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 2 minutes or until melted. Stir in condensed milk, 1 tablespoon vanilla, and walnuts. Spread mixture into a buttered 9-inch square pan. Cool completely. Cut fudge into 1/2-inch squares.
  2. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg and remaining 1 tablespoon vanilla; beat well.
  3. Combine salt, flour, and cocoa; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well.
  4. Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Work with 1 portion at a time; keep remaining dough chilled.
  5. Divide each portion into 12 pieces. Quickly press each piece of dough around a square of fudge; roll dough into a 1-inch ball. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat process with remaining dough and fudge pieces. Reserve remaining fudge for another use.
  6. Bake at 350° for 11 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Tip: Be sure to keep dough you're not working with refrigerated. Chilling dough prevents it from becoming too soft to handle.
