  • Line a 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving about a 1-inch overhang for easy removal. Gently spray with nonstick cooking spray and dab away any excess oil with a paper towel. Set aside.
  • In a large, heatproof bowl, combine the chocolate chips and butter. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water over medium-low heat, making sure the water never touches the bottom of the bowl. Use a spatula to stir until completely melted and combined.
  • Add the sweetened condensed milk, sea salt, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined and smooth. Add the nuts, if using, and stir again.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and spread the top with a spatula until smooth.
  • Refrigerate until set, about 2 to 3 hours.
  • Carefully lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into small squares.


Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 weeks or you can store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. You can also freeze fudge. Wrap it in foil and place in a freezer container or bag. Freeze for up to 2 months.
