    I'm looking for the two-step easy fudge recipe - the one that can be used with the EAD. I tried to do a search for it, because I was sure I had seen it on here, but couldn't find it. If any one has it - please let me know. I know it's pretty simple. Just chocolate chips and frosting, I think, but don't know the amount for each. Thanks in advance.

    the fudge that I have done ... it was in the celebration show folder a couple of seasons back, is just one bag of chocolate chips and one tub of frosting. I have never tried to use the EAD with it. You will have to get it to just the right temp or it won't work at all. I put it on a bar pan or in one of the bread tubes. I have also added nuts and marshmellows for rocky road or crushed candy canes in white chocolate. Peanut butter chips with crushed peanuts is good too.

    all of these are the same amount of frosting to chips and go in the microwave for about 1 minute to melt

    Hope this helps

    Thanks. That is very helpful. I read on another site about the EAD, but was curious about the consistency. I also read that it works in the cookie press? Any one have any experience trying this?

    I did the fudge with the EAD...actually my daughter (8 yrs old at the time) did it... I had a mystery host show at my house, and made it up ahead of time, and told everyone that my 8yr old daughter did it -- how easy it is!!
    It was great! everyone loved it, and the EAD made it perfect for crowds of people to pick it up and pop in their mouth! They were very cute too using the EAD.
    I had no problem with the consistency.
    good luck!

    So you used the Easy accent decorator and put spritzes on papers? How did you serve this? And does anyone have the actual recipe handy please??? I don't want to mess up with heating times or what tools to use. THANK YOU!

    You can make this in the microwave, or you can make it in the cookware and make a bigger sale!

    Melt 1 bag of chocolate chips(or any other variety of baking chips) in small saute pan or sauce pan, when melted and smooth add 1 can of cake frosting (any flavor) and then spread on a piece of parchment paper. You could put the parchment paper in the square baker then pour in the fudge, place in the fridge for 20 minutes or till hard, pull the parchment paper off and slice into squares or put cooled but not firm mixture in Easy Accent Decorator and press individual candies.

    Other variations:
    andes candies pieces with chocolate icing = chocolate mint fudge

    white chocolate chips with strawberry icing = strawberry fudge, use
    heart shape cookie cutter to cut pieces and give to someone special!

    peanut butter chips with vanilla icing = peanut butter fudge

    Beth can you just spread it on a pizza stone and let harden, or does it need the baker to form? Does it need to stay refrigerated? (just thought of these questions, thanks)

    You can spread it on parchment paper on a cutting board or any surface you like! I suggested the baker because it's a glazed stone and because people often think of fudge as in a square dish. ;)

    You only refrigerate it to help set it up. I prefer my fudge COLD but if you like it room temperature it works fine!

    I have made it at the start of the show and chill while I make the main recipe but I usually make it ahead of time and cut it into hearts with the creative cutters as a snack at bridal fairs. I display them in paper mini cupcake liners on the chillzanne rectangular server.

  16. Cher - I have tried - only once to put the fudge in the cookie press, and it was a huge mess - of course I was in a huge hurry (should have done this yesterday kind of a day!) so I don't know if it would work better if it were to set a little bit. I was very thankful to have parchment paper down when it oozed out of the cookie press that much I do know!

    Do you add oil to it? What size bag of chips? Thanks! (I don't have the old Seasons Best - I'm new).

    No! Don't add anything to it - just a 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips (any flavor) and a tub of prepared frosting (any flavor to go with the chips). Melt the chocolate chips, stir in the frosting, spread, cool, cut and eat!

    When I made peanut butter fudge, I found out that PB chips come in a 10 oz. bag, but I don't think it made any difference...it was still fabulous!!

    I did it!!! I put the fudge in the cookie press and it worked. You do have to let it start to set up . I just put it in the fridge for a few minutes. It turned out great and it was so easy. :)

    trouble with fudge in the EAD

    Hi! I tried putting my fudge in the EAD, but it just smooched out and made a very un-pretty mess! Should I have let it set up a little bit before I put it in the EAD? I might have been in too big of a hurry, but any tips would be great!

    I used a few different disks the heart one seemed to work really well. I melted the chocolate chips in the batter bowl in the microwave added the frosting, and then put it in the cookie press. Then I put the cookie press in the firdge for about 7-10 min's.

    Hi I microwaved mine in the batter bowl. I did half the chips for about 2 minutes total. Taking out about every 30 seconds to add more and stir. I did chocolate chips and with chocolate frosting. I lined a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper and put it in the fridge for about an hour. To top half of the fudge I used broken up walnuts. I didn't us the decorator on it though. It seemed like it might be too runny for that.

    I melted the chocolate chips in the Large Micro Cooker. I put the whole bag in the cooker and nuked for 1 minute, stirred and then guessed at how much longer. After they were completely melted I stirred in the can of frosting. I let it sit out, stirring occasionaly for maybe 10 minutes. Then I filled my EAD, used the largest star tip, lined my large grooved cutting board ,which I had put in the freezer to chill, with waxed paper and made bite sized stars. I then put the cutting board into the fridge to firm them up.

    OMG!!!!! SOOOOO GOOOD and EASY in the decorator thing!!! I did what you all suggested and nuked 30 seconds at a time (just chips, I used dark chocolate), stirring each time. Added the frosting (also dark chocolate). I let it sit in the bowl while I laid out the mini muffin wrappers in my cookie sheet. It was the right amount of time... scooped it into decorator and spritzed in EASY!!!!

    The next batch was a little tough (it had had all that time to cool), but worked well too. I am so excited!

    I love this recipe. I saw in this store this weekend new caramel and chocolate chips by Nestle so I thought I would try. They do not microwave well. They just burned. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up. It was a good idea, they just don't work well.
