Ingredients

How to make it

  • Put your marshmallows, chips, butter and vanilla in a large bowl.
  • In a heavy pot, add the sugar and milk and bring to a boil over a medium flame.
  • Bring this to a rolling boil and cook for exactly eight (8) minutes
  • Pour the milk and sugar over the marshmallows, chips, butter and vanilla and let it all sit for a minute.
  • Start stirring with a wooden spoon until the marshmallows have melted and add the nuts and stir until the fudge is smooth.
  • Pour into a 9x13 pan or a 15x13 sheet pan. (I use a 9x13 disposable aluminium pan.)
  • Cover your pan with aluminum foil. (You do not have to butter your pan before pouring your fudge into it. )
  • Let fudge rest and cure overnight or for at least several hours until firm to the touch.
  • *You can add more or less nuts as per your preference.
  • *I have added items like M&M's during the holidays, pretzel pieces, used cashews (which was interesting!), toasted coconut, and even bits of vanilla wafers. The fudge without the nuts is excellent as well! You can even roll it into small balls and then roll it in chopped nuts for Fudge Truffles. You can add more mini-marshmallows AFTER you've mixed the fudge together for a Rocky Road Fudge.
  • *This fudge is very soft before it sets as is MOST fudge. After you mix it that you can use a character cake pan and fill that with the fudge but if you do, spray the pan first with an anti-stick spray of some kind. (Bunny-shaped fudge for Easter, Santa-shaped or Xmas tree-shaped fudge)
  • ___*You can always put the fudge in the fridge if you find that it hasn't set firmly enough to slice.
  • *You can pour this into several small aluminum loaf pans for gift baskets or in round decorated tins for the holidays.
  • **See's Candy is now $15.00 a pound!
  • Serving suggestion: This fudge is best when served at room temperature.

    When making fudge I always used marshmallow cream, boiling the evaporated milk and sugar alone in a Corning pot. It takes some time on an electric glass cooktop to get the mix to 235 degrees before starting the timer for 8 minutes. I used the Kraft minis called for in the recipe. Butter, vanilla and marshmallows sat in the large bowl for hours (today it's 87 degrees in the kitchen) before pouring the hot sugar/cream into the bowl. After a minute I stir and stir but it looks like I am going to have Rocky Road instead of fudge. I didn't see a single comment about the minis not melting so I thought there must be something wrong with our bag of minis. It looks like we grabbed an old bag off the store shelf since the date on the bag was May 19, 09. :-(
    Next time I'll use the cream again. I made it last month with cream and it was fantastic.

    Thanks for your comment, Snarky. This is the fudge I grew up on as there was a See's Candy store in my neighborhood. I don't know what kind of fudge you grew up on but would enjoy seeing a recipe for your kind of fudge someday posted on Group Recipes. In fact, there's an "Absolute Fudge" group listed and perhaps you'd be willing to post your recipe there. Please share it with all of us?
    I'm delighted to read that your family and friends did enjoy eating the fudge. Happy New Year to you!

    I recently made this fudge. Although it is pliable like the author indicates it does not taste like the fudge I was expecting from my childhood. It is more like a very chocately, sweet marshmallow flavour with nuts. Albeit different and good, I was preferring a true fudge recipe. I hope I'm not dinged for my comment, I am posting my truthful opinion. I should also point out my family and friends did eat the entire batch, though.

    Made this tonight. Looks good. Just waiting for it to "set" I only used 12 oz evap. milk. They dont make 13 oz anymore. So we shall see how it goes. Oh and I am such a dork. I was busy talking on the phone while making this and forgot to add vanilla to my bowl. Thing is I had it measured out too... DUUUh!
