How to Make Easy, Creamy Fudge

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a 3 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir and boil 5 minutes over until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips until they are melted. Add the marshmallow creme, vanilla and nuts and stir until smooth and creamy. Pour then press into a 9" x 13" x 2" pan. Cool completely before cutting into pieces.
  3. Here are some other ideas for different flavors:

    For peanut butter fudge: omit chocolate chips and use peanut butter chips instead. Add 1/3 cup peanut butter when you add the chips.

    For mint chocolate chip fudge: omit the chocolate chips and use mint chocolate chips or 12 oz. chopped Andes mint candies.

    For white fudge: omit chocolate chips and use white chocolate instead. You can add dried cherries or cranberries for a twist instead of the nuts.
