Mama's Fudge, Easy to make with basic, inexpensive ingredients

Ever since I can remember my mother made fudge.
This is the recipe she used EVERY year.
Since I have been on my own Christmas just is not Christmas for me without this tradition.

Over the years I have found it VERY helpful to get ALL of the ingredients ready to just pour in.

Butter 13×9 baking dish with about 1 Tablespoon of butter, set aside.

Take 3 cups granulated sugar,

3/4 cup butter,

and 2/3 cup evaporated milk

place in 6 quart sauce pan. Gently bring to a boil stirring as you go.

Once it starts to boil let it gently boil for 5 minutes and continue to gently stir.

Once it has boiled 5 minutes remove from heat and add

1 teaspoon vanilla

7 oz marshmallow creme

1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 oz)

1 cup chopped nuts ~ optional (due to allergies in my home we leave these out).

Stir these items in until it is all combined.

Pour into reserved buttered 13×9 glass dish.

Chill over night in the refrigerator, then cut into bite size pieces.

In the past I have placed cut pieces in quart jars and either frozen or kept in the fridge.

I also add these to goodie plates that I deliver to people in my church.

Time: takes about 20 minutes
Yeilds: about 40 pieces from each batch
Calories: 162 per 1/40th of batch

Can you use a better chocolate that is not a semi-sweet? Our family likes the milk chocolate taste better normally. (or will the fudge be too sweet then)?

You should line your pan with foil first, butter your foil. This will allow you to remove your fudge and cut in to squares and not have any difficulty removing the cut squares from the pan.

I make this fudge recipe every year and it is practically foolproof. So easy and it is nice fluffy fudge!

Set ups firmly, Pam. This year to cut it I left it on the counter to warm up. Downside to that is it gets eaten more quickly.

I love making fudge every year. Does your fudge set up on the softer or firmer side with this recipe?
