This is about the same as 'my' recipe for See's fudge. It's very good. I just use a 12 oz can of evap milk and have no problems. I do stir constantly during the 7-8 min rolling boil -- try to keep your temperature as low as possible while maintaining a boil. Use the largest jelly roll pan you can find (mine is 11.5" x 17") as this makes a ton. Fudge didn't step for you?? Turn them into truffles by making balls & roll in cocoa or something -- and next time boil a little longer.
I made this yesterday and it is delicious and creamy, but I am curious about the 14 oz can of evap. milk; it comes in 12 oz and 5 oz cans. I used exactly 14 oz as the recipe called for, but it did not set up as firmly as fudge should. Did others just use a 12 oz can? Also, recipe does not mention if you should stir during the boiling.I will make this again (with 12 oz milk), but would love some input!
For once my fudge came out perfect!! When I saw it was See's I had to try it, I'm from Calif and remember the wonderful fudge we use to get there!! This is it! Thank you! I used a half sheet jelly roll pan and it made 130 pieces!
This fudge was delicious. I made it for a church auction and it brought $25. The next time I make it I will put into two 9 x 13 pans as the pieces were VERY thick. I put out samples of the fudge to drive the price up and everyone loved it. I'm going to make it again for our women's retreat this weekend.
Very good fudge. It helps to refrigerate before cutting. I made a thinner fudge and spread it in two jelly roll pans. I had to open a second can of evaporated milk, but I suspect in 2003 when this recipe was posted the can used to hold 14 ounces. They squeezed out a few ounces! Sigh...
I have made 2 batches of this now, and must tell you that it is delicious!! As another reviewer had stated, there is not a 14oz. can of evaporated milk to be found here, so I simply bought 3 5oz. and measured out the 14 needed. I used pecans in one and walnuts in the other. Very good fudge, I must say. :) Thank you. ;)
