Chocolate Fudge Recipe


Fudge is always a welcome treat, but I usually only make it around the holidays.  This recipe is the one my mom made when I was growing up, and it’s dee-lish!  Perfect for sharing with family and friends at gatherings, it also makes a nice holiday gift for friends and co-workers.  This recipe includes nuts, but they can easily be omitted for folks that don’t like nuts or are allergic.

Chocolate Fudge Recipe


18 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pint marshmallow cream
2 cups chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
1 TBSP vanilla
2 sticks margarine or butter
1 large can of evaporated milk (12 oz.)
4 ½ cups sugar

Yield: 5 pounds of fudge

Directions: Place the first five ingredients into a very large bowl, then set aside.  Put the evaporated milk and 4 ½ cups sugar in a saucepan and boil for a full 15 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour mixture over the other ingredients and beat thoroughly.  Pour the fudge into a 13″ x 9″ pan lined with wax paper.  When cool, cut fudge into squares.  Store in refrigerator.


I hope you enjoy this fudge recipe, dear readers…

Warm regards,
