Never Fail Fudge!

  1. 5 cups granulated sugar
    1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
    1/4 pound butter or margarine
    12 ounces Marshmallow Fluff
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup walnuts
    24 ounces chocolate chips

    Combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter, marshmallow crème and salt in a 6-quart saucepan. Stir over medium heat. Boil slowly for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, (overcook rather than undercook [if you know anything about candy making, they soft-ball-test]).

    Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, walnuts and chocolate chips. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9-inch pan or 2 buttered 9-inch square pans.

    Makes about 5 pounds.

    Just made about 4 batches. GREAT stuff.

    the best way i can describe it is that it is almost like melted marshmallows, but in a jar.

    I couldn't figure out how to get to the Australian Amazon (is there such a thing? I know there is for Canada and the UK), but in the US amazon.com sells foods. Here's a link to it, so you can at least see what you're looking for:

    Mmmm, fluffy

    Does this recipe require a candy thermometer? I remember back when my sister and I were teenagers over the summer we'd make old fashioned fudge. It'd fail half the time because we didn't have a good candy thermometer...

    Danke schoen, Alois! Froehliche Weihnachten!
    Since you shared such a great fudge recipe, here is a recipe for white fudge, very easy to make, and hubby begs for it every Christmas:
    • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    • 2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)
    • 2 pounds white almond bark, broken into small pieces
    • 1 to 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans, walnuts or hickory nuts
    Directions:

    In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; set aside. In the top of a double boiler, melt butter. Add almond bark; heat and stir until melted and smooth. Pour over the cream cheese; beat until smooth and glossy, about 7-10 minutes. Stir in nuts. Pour into a greased 9-in. square pan. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 64 pieces (about 1 inch).

    Alois, that's the second best fudge recipe around. And it really does not fail!

    The best is to find the Fluff and use the recipe on it - it calls for marshmallows instead of sugar so the fudge is never grainy and you don't need to stir for five minutes - just mix 'til it all melts.

    My sister in law who lives in England can't find it there. She stocks up on it and takes it back with her when she visits. I believe the jars are plastic not glass.
