Fudge too soft...

Greetings! :D

I found this recipe in my cookbooks and it was pretty simple- condensed milk, chocolate chips, bit of butter and mint extract. Seeing as payday is just around the corner, I was looking to make something with the things already in my fridge. I made this up and unfortunately, it hasn't hardened. I know if I cut into it, it's not going to be pretty. It sort of has the consistency of something a bit thicker than syrup although it maintained its taste and colour.

So I'm wondering if there's something I can do to it to make it better. I ran out of eggs and milk (we don't use either for anything but cooking, so it's never a big deal when I run out). I have things like Graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese, rolled oats, sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup, flour, margarine, tapioca, etc. But I'm not sure what to do with it all-- I just don't want to let the chocolate go to waste because let's face it-- it's chocolate!

Does anyone have an idea of what I could do with my goopy chocolate concoction? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Oh Oh Oh! Pick Me!!

I would stir one cup of rolled oats into the cream cheese and then stir the fudge into the cream cheese mixture! Drop by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and chill.

Hmm... that sounds tasty! But do you think they would still be too soft?

I'm not sure, was just working with what you had that would not dilute the chocolate too much.

!! I found eggs-- I'm so happy. I can't believe I'm happy about finding eggs, it's like winning the lottery. I was thinking of adding 2 eggs and making individual cheesecakes. ^__^

You could use the fudge warmed with a little cream as topping for pancakes and ice cream or just use as is to sandwich cookies. It will make a nice filling for cake too.

I would just eat it off a spoon lol!
