Mom’s Fudge

This is a special post, where my mom is doing the bakin’. It’s the holidays, which means mom is whipping up her famous fudge! She’s always baking other goodies as well, baklava, pistachio bark and cookies. It changes every year, but the fudge is definitely the staple! I took down her recipe and got some action shots of her creating the chocolatey epicness that the family devours every year.
Oh goodness

The Ingredients for 2 lbs of fudge:
3/4 cup butter
1 (5oz.) can of evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
1 (7oz.) jar of marshmallow creme
1 tsp. vanilla (she prefers to eyeball the amount, but guesses it’s about a tsp.) šŸ™‚
1 (12oz.) bag of milk chocolate chips
2 cups of walnuts
Helping Mom prep

Mom recommends getting every ingredient and tool that you’ll need before getting started, as time is important with making fudge.

In a 4 quart pan, melt the butter on medium-high heat.
Once melted, add the evaporated milk and sugar, stirring constantly.
Here comes the sugar
Use a candy thermometer and continue stirring until it reaches 234F, then remove from heat. This usually takes about 5 minutes.
Scoop in the marshmallow creme.
Jet Puffed
Stir until smooth.
Working quickly, add the vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
Nutty
Once all ingredients are combined and smooth, pour the fudge into a greased 9″x13″ dish.
Inviting
Spread evenly and stick the dish in the fridge for at least one hour.
Smoooooooth
Once it’s nice and firm, you can cut the fudge out and eat it up!
Omp!

      I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe! I asked my mom and what she suggested was to throw in some mini marshmallows when the sugar, butter and evaporated milk was ready and HOT. I hope this is helpful and that you enjoy it! šŸ™‚
