Homemade Fudge

It's Fudge Day!!!!  Every year, my sister and I get together and make fudge.  LOTS of fudge.  Usually 30-40 pounds of fudge!  This is what we give many of our neighbors, co-workers, and friends.  This recipe was handed down from my grandmother, Mazie, who said it was the original See's Candy fudge recipe.  In my opinion, it is better than the fudge bought at the candy store.  Another great thing about this recipe is that you don't even need a candy thermometer, AND it turns out perfect every time!

See's Fudge
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 large can evaporated milk (not condensed)
1/2 pound butter (no substitutions)
1 jar marshmallow creme
18 oz. chocolate chips (semi-sweet*)
Pinch of salt

In bowl of mixer, put chocolate chips, marshmallow creme and butter.


In heavy pan, mix together sugar and evaporated milk.


Bring to a boil, and boil for 8 minutes.

Pour sugar mixture over ingredients in mixer bowl.
Beat for 15 minutes on low-medium speed.

Pour into containers.

Decorate and give away {make sure you keep one-or two-for yourself!}

For Maple-Nut Fudge, use 2 1/4 C brown sugar and 2 1/4 C white sugar, and instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, use white chocolate chips.  Add 1-2 tsp maple flavoring (to taste). 

You can also substitute milk chocolate chips for a lighter, milkier taste.  I have also mixed dark chocolate in with the semi-sweet.  YUMMY!!!
