Chocolate fudge recipe

PhotobucketRumor has it fudge came about as a failed attempt at making caramels. As a seasoned candy maker, I can easily see how this happened! I have more than my fair share of accidents in the kitchen-some of them happy ones. This recipe is no accident and makes a delicious batch of rich, chocolatey fudge.

CHOCOLATE FUDGE

  • 1 cup butter
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups evaporated milk
  • 4 cups sugar

  • Directions

    Line a 13x9 inch baking dish with foil and butter the foil. In the top half of a double boiler combine the butter or margarine, evaporated milk and sugar. Cook on medium heat for 12 minutes or until it reaches a temperature of 240 degrees F. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips, vanilla and marshmallow creme. Stir until chocolate chips melt then mix in the chopped walnuts. Spread mixture into the prepared pan. Score into squares while still warm. Refrigerate until firm then cut along the scored lines.
