I received this recipe in a "recipe exchange" and it reminded me of the fudge I used to make as a teenager. I was a bit surprised by the amount of sugar but it seemed to work fine. I did try this recipe with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts and my husband loved it, but I think it needed to be boiled a bit longer as it was a little "soft".
- 6 cups sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups butter
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 2 (12 ounce) packages chocolate chips
- 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
- 1 cup nuts (I like pecans and I use about 1 1/2 cups)
- Cook sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a heavy pan over medium heat. Boil for 10 minutes (a slow, even boil), stirring all the time.
- Take off burner and immediately add chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and nuts; making sure you mix very well.
- Pour into a 9x13 buttered pan. (Note: Next time I'm using two pans so the fudge isn't so dense.) Let cool completely before cutting.
Every year I make a bunch of different goodies to give away at Christmas time. I tried making fudge the old fashioned way but it never really came out right. Now I use this recipe for chocolate and peanut butter fudge and get raves for it!!! This year I had to make 6 batches just to please everyone and my father said all he wants is fudge... a WHOLE batch for himself!!!! Thanks so much! This is one recipe I never misplace!!!!
