A recipe from my local newspaper that my grandmother used when making fudge, adapted from "Politics and Pot Roast: A Flavorful Look at the Presidency" by Sarah Hood Salomon.
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 12 ounces German sweet chocolate, broken into bits
- 2 (7 ounce) jars marshmallow creme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 4 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 cups chopped walnuts (optional) or 2 cups chopped pecans (optional)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Butter a 9-inch square pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine semisweet and German sweet chocolates, marshmallow creme, and salt.
- In a large saucepan, combine milk and sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, for 6 to 7 minutes. (The longer it cooks, the firmer the fudge).
- Pour milk mixture over chocolate. Add nuts and butter and beat until chocolate is melted and fudge is creamy.
- Pour mixture into buttered pan and let cool at room temperature for a few hours before cutting into small squares. Store in an airtight container.
