This easy-to-make chocolate fudge is full of candy coated chocolate pieces, giving it extra crunch.

Ingredients

1 pound confections' sugar (2 2/3 cups

1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter

  1. Line 8×8-inch pan with waxed paper, extending the paper 1-inch above rim.
  2. In a 1 1/2-quart casserole or large bowl, stir sugar, cocoa, salt, milk, and vanilla together until partially blended (mixture is too stiff to thoroughly blend in all dry ingredients).
  3. Cut butter in 4 pieces and place in center or mixture.
  4. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until the milk feels warm on the bottom of the dish.
  5. Remove from the microwave and stir vigorously until smooth.  If all butter has not melted in cooking, it will as mixture is stirred.

  8. Lift out of pan and cut into squares.
