This is very close to my own mother's middle-of-the-night fudge. She's been gone a decade. so this recipe definitely brought back back good memories. Thank you, Kannewilson.

My 11 YO son and I made the other day. He did 99% and it was easy enough and DELICIOUS!
His first attempt at "cooking". Thanks so much. He wants to make and give for holidays.

Love this fudge. It turns out sooo glossy without all the work! The recipe off of uses 1 2/3 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. It makes a large amount of fudge, about 50 little pieces. Be sure to stick to the time and not overcook it. Also, use the mini marshmallows, or cut your big ones into small pieces or it takes a looooong time for the marshmallows to melt! Thanks for posting this great recipe!
