Every once in a while I read something on the Internet that actually turns out to be true. In this case, I am talking about Kris' recipe for fudge.
We made it earlier today. It really is that good.
- 3 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 Cup butter
- 4-1/2 Cups sugar
- 1- 7 oz. jar marshmallow cream
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 2 Tblsp. vanilla
- 1-2 Cups chopped nuts (macadamia nuts are excellent)
Put chocolate chips, butter, and marshmallow cream in a large bowl. Set aside. In heavy dutch oven, bring milk and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Continue stirring frequently for exactly 8 minutes. Pour hot mixture over ingredients in bowl. Stir until well mixed, then beat with an electric mixer until fudge begins to hold its shape. Beat in vanilla. Stir in nuts. Pour fudge into a buttered 13″ x 9″ pan and refrigerate until solid.
Note - boil the sugar milk in the smallest pan that you can. If it's too thin it'll burn.
