Chocolate Ramen Fudge


I know eating ramen can get pretty boring. I’m a journalist in college and have had more than my fair share of instant noodle banquets, but I have never considered a ramen dessert.

I’m at my grandmother’s house this weekend. She collects tons of cookbooks, most with clever spins on humble ingredients. She lived through tough, tense times and has always enjoyed making fabulous dishes from very few ingredients. But, ramen fudge is by far the most bizarre concoction I’ve ever seen.

Chocolate Ramen Fudge
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 package (3 ounces) ramen noodles broken into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla (we used almond because we’re just that much cooler)

Directions:
1. Line an 8-inch baking pan in foil.
2. Melt chocolate add butter, milk, vanilla, and ramen
3. Pop that sinful concoction in the freezer for an hour or until set. Remove from pan and slice.

Weird, yeah? The almond worked very well in the mix (and I am allergic to vanilla anyway) and I might make this again if I ever need to confuse the shit out of some innocent luncheon attendees.

Ramen fudge. That’s a thing. But it isn’t the only ramen dessert I’ve seen today. The Fun With Ramen Noodles cookbook has several weird ideas, many of them sweet. You can find the cookbook in most grocery stores or in the iOS app store.

Weird weird weird.
