It was against my better judgement.
I wasn’t going to do it this year.
We really don’t need it.
But Hubby Dear loves it sooooo much.
And it’s always great to give as gifts.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without it.
What is it?
Yes. I made Fudge today. Wonderful, buttery, sugary, chocklity, nutty Fudge. And I just have one question. How does 5 lbs of fudge in the pan become 25 pounds on my b… well you know what I mean.
Over the years I’ve had many people tell me they make delicious fudge but I’ve never had any fudge that is as good as the recipe we’ve been using for years.
I think it was my sis Anita, who found and shared this recipe when I was first married and it has never failed. In fact it’s called Never Fail Fudge. It’s a variation of the Fantasy Fudge. It makes a full 9″ X 13″ pan. Enough to share with the neighbors.
I thought you might like to give it a try. So here we go…….
1/2 cup butter
4 1/2 cups sugar
14 1/2 oz evaporated milk. (one can is 13 oz so I just add another 1 1/2 oz milk or cream)
Stir and melt together over med high heat until it comes to a boil you can’t stir down.
Boil for exactly 5 1/2 minutes
Remove from heat and vigorously stir in:
1 cup marshmallow cream
13 oz milk chocolate bar broken into pieces (I like Hershey the best)
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips (I like Nestle the best)
2 teas vanilla
2 cups chopped walnuts – optional
Stir until all is melted and well mixed and pour into 9″ X 13″ well buttered pan
If you want the love and adoration of everyone around you just give them a plate of this fudge.
And don’t forget to put a red bow on top.
