This has been my go to fudge recipe for ages. People literally beg me for this & I actually had friends with a restaurant that were considering having me make it for them. The only thing I do differently is that I always use the Dark 60% Cocoa usually Ghiradelli which just seems to make it really delicious. I've also added peanut butter to make it chocolate peanut butter fudge & peppermint pieces to make peppermint fudge...different people adore different ones. Anyway you go thanks for posting so it gets it's due.
I thought I followed the recipe to the T but I ended up with a lumpy watery mess. So caution to anyone who makes it...I have no clue what I did wrong...and I'm usually a fairly decent cook...not pro by any means, but I stirred it constantly and no water on any utensils or anything like that either. So I don't know! My (science teacher) husband suggested bad barometric pressure...
Sometimes the Origanal's are still the best.. this proves that ten times over
Thanks so much for this recipe! My mother-in-law makes this and my husband has been begging me for it! He did a search and found your recipe. I made it Christmas day and made him and my kids so happy! Thanks Steve!
WOW!! thank you Steve. I have been looking for the "old" recipe for Marshmallow fudge for about three years now & have only been able to find the new "improved" kind (can we say ewww?). I recognize this one as being the one I made every year for the holidays but stopped making when they changed it as I couldn't remember the exact measurements of the original. Heck with waiting for Christmas... I am making fudge as soon as I can go get the ingredients!! You're my hero :-)
I like this fudge too. Dark chocolate is too much for me, so I usually substitute milk chocolate. Thanks for posting!
