Marshmallow Nut Fudge

Sending some fudge to a sweetie for Valentine's Day this year?

Marshmallow-Nut Fudge

Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly:
4½ cups sugar
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
½ lb. butter
dash salt

Add:
12 oz. marshmallows
12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
1½ cups coarsely chopped nuts, optional
2 tsp. vanilla

Stir until melted. Pour into a greased pan and cool. Keep refrigerated. This recipe makes a lot of fudge. If you put it in a 9 x 13 inch pan the fudge will be about 1 inch thick.
Tiffany's Notes:  Fudge is great for Valentine's Day...or Christmas...or Easter...or anytime.  :)  In fact, I always make fudge for Groundhog Day (because before I was engaged I made my soon-to-be-husband some groundhog shaped fudge in honor of that important holiday).   I usually make Festive Fudge because it's quick and easy.  I've also made Five Minute Fudge.  This year it was time to try a different recipe from the family cookbook.

I was curious to see what would happen with the long cook time (other recipes call for cooking the candy mixture for 5 or 6 minutes or to a certain temperature on a candy thermometer).  I would think that altitude might have an impact on how long you should cook it.  I live close to sea level so I'm curious to see how this recipe works at other altitudes. 

I liked this recipe.  This is definitely softer and creamier than the Festive Fudge recipe.  It isn't as chocolatey, though.  It did take a long time to bring to a boil--so this isn't as quick as the other recipes.  I would have added nuts, but most of my family aren't nut-lovers so I didn't add them.  Hum...maybe I should have added the nuts...more for me?  ;)

  1. I made this again the other day {again for our Groundhog Day fudge!}. I remembered it as soft and creamy so we went with this recipe again this year. I also remembered it wasn't as chocolaty as I liked so this year I added 3 cups of chocolate chips. It worked just great! So, if you want a stronger chocolate taste just increase the amount of the chocolate chips. I also did half with nuts and half without.
