See's Fudge (copycat)

"Found this on the net at CopyKat recipes. I don't know if it's like See's, because I've never had See's. But I do know it's good!"

    Are the large marshmallows the jumbo size, about 90 calories each or the regular size, about 25 calories each?

    A couple of cautions/warnings. Very important when cooking mixture on stove to use a very large saucepan as mixture more than doubles in size. Cook mixture for AT LEAST 6 minutes. That is the key to having your fudge firm up nicely. Also, use a stand mixer. Have mixer running at slow speed and pour hot mixture in a slow stream into butter, choc. chip and vanilla. That way, there is no splatter. If you double this recipe, it fits nicely in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Lining pan with foil enables you to lift fudge from pan once it has cooled. Trust me, I've made this recipe alot.

    My batch of fudge firmed up really well in the fridge. I also like the fact that the chocolate is not over the heat. Seems to burn and make a mess of the pan. I attempted to cut up the marshmallows to help the melting process and it helped a little. Overall, good fudge!!!

    I say Better than See's fudge! See's fudge is too sweet for me. I made this recipe exactly as described and it was wonderful, creamy and firm (but not crumbly like some). This one is in my favorites. Thanks! :)

    Thanks yet again, Inez! Great fudge - extremely rich. I loved it because I always have these ingredients on hand. 4 stars instead of mine since it didn't get very firm in the fridge, although this could be me; fudge is one thing I can't seem to do very well. Taste is amazing - I will make it again since this won't last long and I'll see if it works better for me. Perfect for chocolate lovers!

    I made this today. I had some trouble getting the marshmallows to melt so I scooped some of them out and replaced them with marshmallow cream... much easier to finish the recipe. It is the best fudge I have ever made! Perfect texture, taste and creaminess.

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
