Easiest fudge I've ever made. I use 1 pkg choc. chips, boil 5 minutes (no thermometer needed). Never had a problem. As a child we made old fashioned fudge, but have been unable to replicate the results. THIS recipe is the next best thing. LOVE IT.
I am not sure why some are having trouble with this recipe. I have made it for decades and like it best because it is not gritty like some old fashioned fudge can be. I love it and so does everyone I've ever given it to. For anyone who might want to try something different... use milk choc. instead of dark. I LOVE dark chocolate, but using the milk chc. in this is to die for. It is the color of hot chocolate, so that is what I call it. (I do use a candy thermometer.)
I have made this recipe for the past 25 years and have eaten for most of my 42 years of life. I make a batch of it and send it to my older brother in FL as his Christmas Gift. My son asks for it every year for his Birthday treat at school. It may not be the easiest but it is the best tasting. Using a Candy thermometer really helps but not necessary. Be patient
Once again I relied on the jar of marshmallow creme for the Fantasy Fudge recipe and was GREATLY disappointed. I have made the old recipe since I was a kid with my mother, our Christmas tradition, and now all I get is a GREASY MESS!!! Times are tight and I don't have the money to waste on BAD RECIPES.
i love this fudge
This recipe is a big hit in my family and is always requested during the holidays. Everyone wants me to make it for gifts for friends and other family members. For those of you having a hard time with the recipe: try the microwave version. I have the most success with it. Remember, cooking candy on a high humid day does not produce the best results. If it comes out too soft, check the type of butter you are using. It may have too much oil content (check your measurements as well!). I've also used maple flavoring in the fudge instead of part of the vanilla and have switched out and used milk chocolate chips~ or added approx. 1 cup peanut butter for peanut butter fudge. My family's favorite is the original recipe, though!
I made this fudge successfully for years when my children were small. However, I have not made it successfully for almost 10 years and am now reached my frustration limit and will never make it again. Either the sugar (using pure cane)doesn't dissolve or the melted butter floats to the top of the fudge in the pan. Consistently the sugar never dissolves. A very expensive proposition. From now on, if I want to enjoy fudge at Christmas I will simply find a good online maker and order it.
I have made this for years! Always turns out wonderfully. I do use the microwave version I found on the marshmallow cream label and no nuts. This year it is on it's way to Afghanistan!
I have made fudge using this recipe for over 20 years. My family requests it each Christmas.
I make about 200# to give away at holidays. Tips don't use thermometer boil in a rolling boil for 5 minutes and always turns out perfect. Be sure to use timer. For peanut butter I use peanut butter chips (no nuts), makes the fudge firmer. White chocolate chips with pecans instead of walnuts is great!
