With Valentine’s Day only a few days away, my mind is gravitating toward all things chocolate.  Who doesn’t love to indulge a little bit extra on Valentine’s Day by sneaking a few of your favorite chocolate treats?  I think that making your own homemade chocolates and presenting them in a heart-shaped box to someone you love or admire would be an adorable and memorable Valentine’s gift.  This Pretzel Toffee Fudge would be the perfect addition to your chocolate box.

Pretzel Toffee Fudge {Satisfy My Sweet Tooth}

Homemade chocolate doesn’t have to be fussy and stressful.  You can skip the complicated tempering and expensive chocolate by using a few basic ingredients that still result in decadent and indulgent treats.  All you need to make this Pretzel Toffee Fudge is some chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and a few other basic ingredients.  I chose to let my fudge set up in a mini muffin pan with individual paper liners so that they could be placed into a chocolate box with other varieties.  You could also simply pour the warm Pretzel Toffee Fudge into a well-greased pan, allow it to set and then cut it into squares.

Pretzel Toffee Fudge {Satisfy My Sweet Tooth}

I had purchased a can of fat-free sweetened condensed milk around the holidays because I wanted to experiment and see if the fat-free version would change the consistency or flavor of recipes I used it in and I have to tell you, for this recipe, you would never guess that it used any “healthier” ingredients!   For this Pretzel Toffee Fudge, I chose to mix in crushed up pretzels and chopped Heath bar bits because I love the sweet and salty combination along with the crave-able crunch that these ingredients offer.  You could easily make this recipe into a S’mores version by mixing in crushed graham crackers and sprinkling marshmallows over the top or you could try Rocky Road by adding nuts and marshmallows.
