When it gets hot outside, the last thing you want is to sit next to a hot oven, waiting for your brownies to bake. Fortunately for you, there is a two-ingredient, no-bake solution that will still satiate your sweet tooth without you breaking a single sweat. If you’ve never heard of a two-ingredient fudge before, don’t worry. It’s super easy to make, and everyone will absolutely love the recipe! Here’s how to make it:
- 2 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
Yes, you read that right! All you need is condensed milk and chocolate chips. If you’re a fan of white chocolate, feel free to use that in the fudge recipe or try one part dark and one part white chocolate chips for extra flavor.
How to Make the Two-Ingredient Fudge
Grab a square baking pan (8-inch or bigger) and line it, either with aluminum foil or parchment paper. This will make it easier to take out and cut the fudge into pieces. Spray it lightly with oil and set it aside. Be sure to use a piece of foil or parchment paper that is bigger than the pan so you can easily pick it up later.
Get a microwave-safe bowl and combine the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. Microwave them for about two minutes until it is smooth and melted. Stir occasionally until everything is well combined.
Pour the fudge mixture into the baking pan and spread it evenly with a spatula (or a large spoon). Put it in the fridge to chill for at least two hours.
Take out of the fridge and remove the foil or parchment paper from the pan. Slice the fudge into square pieces and serve. You can enjoy it with a scoop of ice cream for extra coolness and flavor during the long summer days. Bon Appétit!
SNL Parodies Parents Reacting to Their Kids Not Visiting for Christmas
Many will not be visiting their parents this Christmas, and that has resulted in tough conversations between kids and their parents. Naturally, SNL was right on the money with their new sketch, showing what plenty of these conversations sounded like.
The New SNL Sketch Is Called “The Christmas Conversation”
Some parents constantly want to see their grandchildren while others are frustrated they cannot see their grown-up kids, but nothing compares to the reactions parents around the country had when their kids told them they wouldn’t be coming home for the holidays. This is exactly what the new SNL sketch is about, and it is hilarious.
Saturday Night Live certainly did their best when spoofing those tough conversations everyone was having with their loved ones. “The Christmas Conversation” shows three women who are portrayed by Ego Nwodim, Chloe Fineman, and Lauren Holt and are having FaceTime conversations with their moms to tell them they too will not be coming home this Christmas.
Kate McKinnon, Heidi Gardner, and Punkie Johnson Play the Frustrated Moms
Heidi Gardner, Kate McKinnon, and Punkie Johnson are in the roles of the moms who react with guilt bombs, passive-aggression, and outright hysteria. Kenan Thompson and Jason Bateman also star in the new spoof, playing the dads who look carefree and clueless. Even though the conversation the fictional families have during the sketch feels both bitter and funny, the message at the end is all about how people keep loving each-other despite the difficult circumstances.
People from all around the world are hoping that such conversations will soon be a thing of the past and the future will be way brighter. Still, the funny, rollicking, and relatable sketch was a good spoof that showed a bit too accurately what many parent-child interactions sounded like this month. Jason Bateman was the host of the latest SNL during which The Christmas Conversation sketch was aired. He joined the SNL crew together with musical guest Morgan Wallen.
