We love Fannie Mae Fudge! Everyone always comments how good it is. People like the fact that is doesn't taste "sugary" sweet. I like to use the mini marshmallows instead of the large ones. The minis melt quicker.
One year I tried to be calorie aware and used fat free milk....never again!! The fudge didn't turn out at all. Another year I added the ingredients in a different order...just to see if it would matter. It does, and I have never done it again.
My family is made up of old school fudge lovers from the south side of Chicago. Having no idea about fudge myself I was surprised when a coworker brought some of this fudge to the office for the holidays. It was wonderfully moist and melted in your mouth, unlike many dry and crumbly fudges I'd had in the past. It might be the marshmallows that make it so gooey and delightful. It was fun and easy to make. Cooked everything on medium heat and poured into a large pan when done. (we opted for no nuts--easy to make).
I make this every year for Christmas. It makes a whole cookie sheet.
