Fantasy Fudge

a plate of home made chocolate fudge with nuts

I had made a post on one of my other blogs and I used a photo of chocolate fudge I had taken a while back.

One of my reader’s, Anna, over at My Only Photo, requested the recipe.

I have been busily making quite a few batches of this fudge and peanut butter fudge too.

Before I file away the cards for another year, I will post the recipe for the chocolate one here.

It is called Fanatasy Fudge, and my aunt gave me the directions for it when I was 13 years old.

Not a Christmas has gone by since then that I have not made this fudge.

This smooth, creamy treat is most delicious – I think it is the old fashioned way of making it that makes it so good.

You will need:

3 cups of sugar

3/4 cup of butter (not margarine)

2/3 cup evaporated milk

1 12oz package of semi sweet chocolate chips

1 7 oz jar of marshmallow fluff

1 cup of chopped walnuts

1 teaspoon of real vanilla

Combine the sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over a medium-high heat.  Stir constantly as this mixture scorches easily.  Boil for 5 minutes or til a candy thermometer reads 238 degrees.  Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips until they are melted.  Add the marshmallow and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Add nuts and vanilla.  Pour into a 9×13 inch buttered pan.  Cool and cut.  Store in the refrigerator.  Makes 3 pounds of candy.

I have never had this candy not set or mess up in any way.  I would say it is a never fail recipe.

Hope you enjoy!!

    Oh Kathy, thanks so much, it sounds very easy, and I am sure to try it. I attempted to make my own fudge from my head once, since I thought I knew what I was doing, but I came up with something very gluey, lol. Thanks again, best wishes for Christmas and New Year to you and your family. Anna :)

    Thanks for this. It seems I am ever on a quest for the best fudge recipe. If it was just me, I’d be happy with anything, but fudge that comes out of my kitchen must pass the hubby test. And he’s picky. I’ll try this one out on him. Let us hope he will finally be pleased!
