The. Best. Fudge. EVER.



Really. It is.

I am soo glad for the lady who gave me this fudge recipe at one of my bridal showers! I have made it every Christmas since. The smoothest, creamiest fudge I've ever had. And...YUMMMMMM is all I can say about it!

(Although, every year, when I give my husband a piece to test taste, he grimaces as he's eating it it. It's his way of saying, "Oh, it's bad. I wouldn't give it as gifts. You should keep the whole pan here at home for me!" Sorry for him, the WHOLE pan never stays, but there always seems to be plenty of fudge both for gifts and us)! ;-)




CHRISTMAS FUDGE

1 lb grated milk chocolate (I only use Symphony bars! And, I use a vegetable peeler to "grate." It seems to be the easiest method I've discovered over the years)
12 oz package semisweet chocolate chips
1 jar marshmallow fluff (the original recipe never specified a size - I just use a normal jar, 7-10 oz)
1 stick margarine or butter
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
pinch of salt (I omit)

Place grated milk chocolate, chocolate chips, and fluff in large bowl. In large saucepan, combine margarine, sugar, evaporated milk, and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slowly pour cooked mixture into chocolate mixture, stirring well. When well blended, add 2 cups chopped walnuts (optional for you....absolutely omitted for me!). Pour into a greased jelly roll pan and chill. Cut when firm. (I like to line the pan with foil and then waxed paper, so that once chilled, I can lift out of the pan and cut easier).

Recommend: YES

Ok, you are going to make me fat!:) I have to make this now. Note to self: get these ingredients at store this week. I made your Italian Sprinkle cookies today....only I accidentally read it wrong and used reguar sugar in the cookies instead of powdered sugar. But they still turned out good.:) Made them for Sunday school teachers/choir people/etc. I'm hoping to make another batch the right way this week.:)LOL Your recipes are always so good! Thanks for sharing all of them. You should have your own cooking show, seriously.

Oh! I had an epiphane....you should vlog yourself making one of your recipes and then send it in to like Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart. I'm telling ya, Steph, your recipes are that good.:) (I'm seriously not gushing here, but every recipe I've tried has been mouth watering.)

So who was it - me or Joanne? 8 oz of Fluff, so you were right on. I usually buy the big one and use 1/2 the container. That way I get 2 batches out of it! Glad to hear you enjoyed it (um, Ben).

Joanne gave me the recipe, but I remember helping you make the fudge and bark one year. :-) Yum, yum!! Forget Christmastime, I want some now!
