Which one, the easy one or the old family recipe? ;-)

The easy recipe is out of a microwave cookbook and called French Style Fudge. You may have to do conversions to metric unless you have US utensils/ingredients.

2.25 Cup granulated sugar
5-ounce can evaporated milk
12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 Cups)
6-ounce package milk chocolate chips (1 Cup)
1/2 cup (1/4 pound) butter
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1 Cup walnuts, chopped (optional)*

Butter a 2-quart oblong dish (or two smaller ones). I line them with parchment paper first for easier cutting and removal.

In a large microwaveable mixing bowl combine sugar and evaporated milk and blend well. Microwave 6-8 minutes on high ( for 1100 watt oven) until sugar is dissolved, stirring every 2 minutes. Add chips, butter, vanilla, and nuts*. Stir until thoroughly blended. Pour into prepared dish and refrigerate until firm. Makes 60 pieces (more if you cut them smaller). Keeps best refrigerated.

*I use two small glass casserole dishes approximately 11"x7"x2" and pour half the chocolate mixture without nuts into one of them before adding nuts, because not everyone likes (or can eat) nuts in their fudge.

[My microwave oven takes about 7 minutes; I cook 2 min + 2 min + 2 min (watching during this third period so it doesn't bubble over), plus another minute pausing when the mixture threatens to bubble over.]
