Aztec Fudge

Aztec Fudge

This easy-to-make fudge balances rich chocolate flavors with the slight heat of ancho chile pepper.



  1. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil allowing edges to extend beyond pan; butter the foil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chopped chocolate, cinnamon and ground ancho chile pepper.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, sugar and butter. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar and butter are melted and mixture begins to boil. Add marshmallows and stir for 1 minute until melted.
  4. Remove from heat and immediately pour over chopped chocolate mixture; let stand for 2 minutes or until chocolate is softened.
  5. Add vanilla extract; stir until smooth.
  6. Pour mixture into pan and refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  7. To cut fudge, pull on foil edges to remove foil and fudge from pan. Remove foil, place fudge on cutting board; cut into 64 pieces.
  8. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Makes 64 pieces

* Add more or less ancho chile pepper to desired spice level.
