Fudge Recipe - Simple, Easy and No Fail!

Fudge Recipe - Simple, Easy and No Fail!

2 pkgs. (12 oz each) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup margarine (2 sticks)
1 jar (7.5 oz) marshmallow creme
1 can evaporated milk
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract


Here's my how-to guide for making the fudge:

In sauce pan, combine milk and sugar.  Bring to a rolling boil.  STIR.  Boil for 7.5 minutes once it reaches rolling boil. 

Just starting to boil.

Rolling boil.  Will boil over sides if you don't stir.

Pour milk-sugar mixture into mixing bowl on top of chips, margarine (cut into chunks), and marshmallow creme.

Mix until smooth.  Stir in vanilla and nuts (optional).  Pour into lightly buttered cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (for thick fudge put in 9x13 cake pan).  

Instead of buttering the pan I lined it with wax paper. 
Chill for 12-24 hours.  Then cut and store in air tight container.

I lifted the wax paper out of the pan and cut the fudge with a pizza cutter.

Hints: Butter might get brown flakes, but just keep stirring.  It's ok.  Also, substitute peanut butter or butterscotch chips for different flavored fudge.


Enjoy with a good book and cup of hot tea.

The peanut butter is delicious but the butterscotch came out a really soft. I'm thinking a peanut butter and chocolate swirl would be delicious!!

That sounds EASY. And it sounds yummy too, especially since I don't like chocolate!
