Fantasy Fudge


I could never seem to resist a candy store that made fresh fudge.  Then, I discovered that it is a really simple dessert to make at home.  A few years later, I found out that it was my father-in-law's favorite treat.   Easy Christmas present!  It is easy to prepare and fantastic for serving at parties or for gifting.  In the interest of full disclosure, this is the recipe that is on the back of the Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Cream jars.




what you need

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup  butter or margarine
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup) (Do not use sweetened condensed milk.)
1-1/2 pkg.  (12 squares) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
1 cup  choppePLANTERS Walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla



LINE 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Bring sugar, butter and evaporated milk to full rolling boil in 3-qt. saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 4 min. or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.



ADD chocolate and marshmallow creme; stir until melted. Add nuts and vanilla; mix well.
POUR into prepared pan; spread to cover bottom of pan. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into squares.


Like I said, it makes a wonderful gift for your father-in-law.  Just put it in a pretty box.  Do you have any recipes you make every Christmas?  

I would love to hear from you, if you make this.  Enjoy!
