This is my recipe for the easiest and most delicious fudge! I know fudge seems intimidating because it is more of a candy than a baked good, but I promise it is super simple to make! Everyone always asks for the recipe, so here it is, just in time for the holidays! It is perfect to wrap up for gifts or to add to your assorted holiday cookie plates.
2 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup butter or margarine
5 oz. evaporated milk
1 jar (7.5 oz) marshmallow fluff
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon vanilla
1 package (12oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
(It is also helpful to have a candy thermometer on hand)
Line 9×9 pan with parchment paper.
Put chocolate chips and vanilla in a large bowl and set aside.
Combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, marshmallow fluff and salt over low heat until blended.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Once you reach a boil, stir mixture constantly for 4-5 minutes until candy thermometer reaches about 234 degrees. (Be careful – the sugar can burn very quickly!)
Remove from heat and combine in bowl with chocolate chips and vanilla until chocolate melts.
Pour in 9×9 pan and let cool. (If you want you can add sprinkles or nuts on top).
Once the fudge cools and sets, use a sharp knife to cut fudge into small squares.
And lastly, share!
