Welcome to day three of the Seven Days of Holiday Treats series! This recipe is provided by my Grandma, and is the best chocolate fudge I have ever had! I was lucky enough to be able to make it with her this weekend, and I would love to share the recipe with you!
One of the best parts of the recipe, according to my Grandma, is licking the pan after you make it. And after today, I can second that….licking the warm, gooey, deeply chocolatey coating left on the pan may be better than the actual fudge. I highly recommend it ; )
I bet you have most of the ingredients in your pantry already to make this Christmas treat. Warning: This makes a lot of fudge! It would be perfect to put in care packages for friends or family, or to take to holiday gatherings. For just a few minutes of stirring and melting you can make an impressive, and did I mention delicious, fudge that is perfect for the holidays.
- 4 c. sugar
- 1 c. milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 c. butter
- 25 regular size marshmallows
- 14 oz milk chocolate
- 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
- 1 c. nuts (Recommended: walnuts)
Using a large pot, place it on the stove top and add sugar, milk, vanilla, and butter. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, then add marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows melt into the butter/sugar mixture.
Next, add the chocolate (one type at a time) and stir until melted. Lastly, add nuts and stir into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture onto a 10 in x 15 in cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to set. (This is the point where you take an extra spoon to the pot and taste the extras!) Once you are ready to cut the fudge Grandma recommends letting it sit out for 30 minutes to make it easier. Enjoy this family holiday favorite!
