Oh my Oooey Gooey Goodness. This is my favorite way to eat fudge and a perfect winter treat when it is snowing outside. The puddles of marshmellow cream are finger licking good with chunks of nutty chocolate fudge piled high like a Rocky Mountain with puddles of snow running down the sides and around the bottom, just waiting for your to dip into. I hope you too will like my fudge recipe, Enjoy!
Prepare your ingredients: Roast Nuts and chopped them slightly or in half. Set aside and have them ready. Measure your chocolate and have it ready. Put marshmellow cream in fridge until your ready for it.
Prepare your pan: In a 5 3/4 X 3 X 2 inch pan line it with tin foil. Butter the tin foil. Set Aside.
*Note you will need to have these items prepared because when the fudge it done you have to mix, pour, & layer the fudge within 1 minute so the fudge does not harden. So you will have to move quickly.
In a 1 Qt. Pan Put Sugar, Milk and Butter and heat on 3 on the dial or medium. Stir constantly until the mixture begins to boil. When it boils quit stirring and let the mixture boil without stirring between 12-15 minutes until it gets to the softball stage. It will ball when dipped into cold ice water with a spoon and touched.
Quickly take out the marshmellow cream from the fridge.
Now QUICKLY add: Almond, Vanilla, & Chocolate and remove from heat and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Add nuts and fold.
Pour half of the mixture into the pan.
Layer with Marshmellow Cream.
Put the top layer of fudge on.
Put into the fridge/freezer until it is warm to the touch. If it gets cold on the top and the bottom is still hot put the pan in a cool bath to cool the bottom of the pan off. *Note: You don't want to cut the fudge when it is to hot or to cold because the marshmellow cream will be to runny and if the fudge is to cold it will be to hard and break into little pieces when sliced.
Turn the pan up side down and take it off and the foil.
Cut into 1 X 1 inch squares. Immediately put on a tray and serve. Dip the pieces of fudge in the puddles of snow. Enjoy your ooey gooey Rocky Mountain Fudge.
