Did you make Christmas fudge this year?
Christmas fudge, chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge, mint fudge….. I could go on and on. I love fudge!
Fudge is a holiday favorite. Don’t let the thought of making fudge overwhelm you… it’s not that hard! I’ve been making some fudge and wanted to share this easy fudge recipe with you.
Happy Fudge Making!!!!!
I followed this recipe for super easy fudge:
2 sticks of butter
1 can of evaporated milk (do not use the sweetened condensed milk..not the same thing!)
5 1/2 cups of sugar (some recipes call for 6… I used 5 1/2 and it was fine.)
Mix together and slowly bring to a boil in a sauce pan. Constantly stirring with a whisk, let it boil for 6 minutes. Be careful—it’s very hot and will burn you!
After 6 minutes of boiling, remove from heat and add:
18 oz of chocolate chips (which is one full bag and another half of a bag)
1 jar of marshmallow cream (7 oz)
Stir together and then pour into a pan. However, I found that if you use those flexible silicone baking pans, you can get your fudge out in nice cut pieces. If you use a glass dish… well, that fudge will stick to the dish and will be difficult to impossible to get out in nice neat pieces.
I used the silicone flexible pans and was able to easily get the fudge out!
