Soldiers Easy Fudge

From HollyHertiage Recipe for Quick, Easy Fudge


My husband and I have been making this recipe every year for more than 25 years. Well, mostly he makes it. This was the first candy recipe I taught him to make after we were married. It fact, he calls it his signature holiday treat for his friends. It's quick  (under 10 minutes), easy and tastes great. It wouldn't be the holidays without Soldiers Fudge. It ships well so I guess that's where the name comes from.  


Soldiers Easy Fudge Recipe


12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 oz unsweetened chocolate square

1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened and Condensed milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


 In a saucepan over low/medium heat, melt together chocolate and condensed milk. When completely melted together, about 5 minutes, add vanilla and then nuts.  Pour into buttered square pan and chill about 2 hours. Keeps well for long periods if you can resist eating it.

  • I just wanted to comment on this recipe... There are several recipes that are simular to this..... they were put in news papers to help families send something homemade to a loved one.... I have a Civil War one....but back then the families went to war and camped out in tents away from the fighting....and they made this candy and meals over open fires! I also have a World War II one that is simular..... both of these were passed down for generations..... I am in the process of typing them up for a book... and someone told me to check this recipe out..... Thank you Colleen
