It it really simple and very good.

This is the easiest, fastest, no fail fudge recipe I ever found. The flavor combinations are limited only by your imagination.
The basic ingredients are:
1 (12 ounce) package Nestle baking chips (or your favorite brand)
1 can Pillsbury Frosting Mix (or your favorite brand)
Melt chips in a saucepan over very low heat or in the microwave 1-2 minutes til shiny, then stirring until smooth. Combine with frosting. At this point you can add in whatever extras you like such as nuts, candied fruit, marshmallows, cookie pieces, M & M's etc)
Pour into a 8 or 9 inch square pan which has been lined with foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into 36 pieces.
Here are some ideas:
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 can of Coconut Pecan frosting.
1 package of white chips, 1 can of Vanilla frosting, 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring. After candy is poured into pan, drop several drops of red food coloring on to surface and swirl with a knife. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy, pressing in slightly.
1 package of white chips, 1 can Cherry frosting, 1/2-3/4 cups chopped candied cherries, and 1/2-3/4 cups blanched, slivered almonds.
1 package white chips, 1 can Lemon frosting, 1/2-3/4 cups chopped blanched almonds or macadamia nuts, 1/2 cup flaked coconut.
1 package butterscotch chips, 1 can Carmel Pecan frosting, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/2-3/4 cup almond brickle baking chips.
1 package milk or semi-sweet chips, 1 can any chocolate frosting, 1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows, 3/4 cup chopped mixed nuts.
1 package peanut butter chips, 1 can Vanilla or Caramel frosting, 3/4 cup chopped cashews, 1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows.
