1 pkg. Baker's chocolate, semi-sweet

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 can of Bordan's Eagle Brand condensed milk

Melt chocolate in a saucepan over boiling water. Mix with milk and beat for a few minutes. No cooking is needed. Add either pecans or walnuts and vanilla. Pour fudge into a prepared pan and let chill for about 3 hours.

My grandsons were my taste testers this week.

Jayden, who is 7 years old, said it’s a 10 out of 10 the best. Jordon, who is 11 years old, said it’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. So I would say they approved of this week’s recipe!

Deana Coleman, our staff associate, tests out weekly recipes from the cookbook Savoring Saginaw.
