Microwave Chocolate Fudge

Special thanks to Victoria Smith for sharing this quick recipe for fudge. The secret to its smooth texture? Adding silken tofu gives it creaminess and even some good nutrition, although I wouldn't call this health food!
  • 3 c. sugar
  • ½ c. butter
  • 1 (5 1/2 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 2 c. semisweet chocolate pieces
  • ½ lb. silken tofu
  • 1 c. chopped nuts
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. Combine the sugar, butter and evaporated milk in 3-quart glass bowl. Microwave on the highest setting for 9-10 minutes, or until a small amount dropped in cold water forms a soft ball (234 f on a microproof candy thermometer).

Stir in the chocolate pieces and tofu until the mixture is thoroughly blended. Stir in the nuts and vanilla extract.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares.
