Need an easy kids recipe for fudge

My 3 year old is going to make fudge for Christmas presents. I took her today to pick out tins for it. We got some really cute small tins for her fudge gifts. I need a really easy recipe she could easily make.

    Try this one it is so easy and no fail

    2-minute Chocolate Fudge

    1 lb powdered sugar
    1/2 cup cocoa
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1/2 cup butter/margarine
    1 cup chopped nuts

    In 1 1/2 quart casserole stir sugar, cocoa, milk and vanilla together until partially blended (mixture is too stiff to thoroughly blend in all dry ingredients). Put butter on top in center of dish. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until milk feels warm on bottom of dish. Stir vigorously until smooth. If butter has not melted in cooking, it will as mixture is stirred. Blend in nuts. Pour into wax paper lined 8x4x3 dish. Chill 1 hour in refrigerator or 20 to 30 minutes in freezer. Cut into squares. Makes about 36 squares.

    Thanks so much. I thought it would be neat for her to make things this year to give and since she loves to help in the kitchen, I thought fudge would be great. Thanks again

    I found this recipe. Its to make fudge truffles, but I bet you could just use it to make fudge & cut it into pieces. Its only 2 ingredients! Very easy!!!

    Fudge Truffle Ornaments:
    1 (16 oz) pkg semisweet chocolate chips
    1 (16 oz) can chocolate frosting

    Toppings: (choose what you like or do several different kinds) holiday sprinkles, grated white chocolate, chopped nuts, colored sugar, or coconut

    1.) Melt chocolate chips. Stir in frosting. Refrigerate 10 - 15 minutes or until stiff enough to shape. (If too hard, let stand for a while.)
    2.) Roll into 1 inch balls. Roll in the topping of your choice.
    3.) Wrap each each "ornament" in 4 inch square piece of cellophane & tie with a ribbon.
    (If desired, hand with an ornament hook).

    1 can sweetened evaporated milk
    1 tb vanilla
    1 bag chips= any flavor= i have used chocolate peanut butter white chocolate and butterscotch.

    Heat milk in microwave, stir in vanilla and chips until smooth. spread into baking dish and refrigerate for about an hour before cutting. I have a tiny metal christmas tree shaped cookie cutter that I use instead of squares.
