Well this was my first year making fudge. It was relatively easy, although it will give you some great arm muscles from all of that stirring! I am just happy both batches passed the Hubby Test! I love my Dave with all my heart, but he won't hesitate to let me know he doesn't like something (in a very sweet and nice way, but blunt too! LOL). So whenever he said that he liked it I knew it was worth sharing! Its a simple recipe from Marshmallow Fluff! So here it is!
5 cups of sugar
2 small (5 oz) cans of evaporated milk
1/2 stick of butter or margarine
1 jar (16 oz) marshmallow fluff
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 large (12 oz) bags of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of walnuts
-Combine first 5 ingredients in a dutch oven. Blend together over low heat.
-Once its blended well bring it to a boil over medium heat (it needs to be a rolling boil not just slightly boiling). Then boil slowly for 5 -7 minutes stirring constantly! (to make sure it is done use the soft ball test)
-Remove from heat stir in chocolate and vanilla (and nuts is you use them) until it is all blended and smooth (work fast because it cools quickly). Pour it into 2 buttered 9x9 pans or 1 13x9 buttered pan. Let it cool and then eat it up! It makes about 5 lbs.
Blessings and Love!!
