  • 2 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp. light corn syrup

  3. Combine the sugars, half-and-half, chocolates and corn syrup in the saucepan. Place over medium heat and cook until mixture reaches a boil, stirring constantly.

  8. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan. Let it set completely, preferably overnight.
  9. Carefully lift the foil from the pan and cut the fudge into individual squares.
