Aunt Barbara's Creamy Fudge

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by For JTs Grandma

One of the first things my mother taught me how to cook. I remember the smell and hardly being able to wait for it to cool. Now days, everyone asks me for it on the holidays so it's stayed a holiday tradition. It takes almost 30 minutes exactly from start to finish and sets up every time. I have never made it where it doesn't get hard. Handed down from my aunt whom I was named after.

I tried and tried to make "from scratch" fudge at our altitude (over 7,000 feet) and they all came out sugary and terrible. I was excited to try this recipe to see if it would work here and it worked AMAZINGLY well! Would love to figure out how to do it with cocoa powder, but this is definitely the next best thing. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, milk and butter in heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly to soft ball stage.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Add vanilla, marshmellows and stir til almost melted.
  4. Add chocolate chips and stir until everything is completely melted.
  5. Toss in pecans if desired.
  6. Pour on to large buttered platter or plate.
  7. Allow to cool completely. I cut into squares using the pizza cutter. Store in tight container - though it won't last long at all!
  8. This can be easily cut in half for smaller batch.
