ATT: CHOCOHOLICS, SWEETAHOLICS, AND FOODAHOLICS BEST FUDGE EVER

Image

I made this fudge recipe last year. Boy was it good and easy. This is the kind of recipes I love.  The thing with this fudge, I couldn’t keep my mitts off the candy. Even when I froze it, I was still cutting pieces of it and gobbling it down. No candy thermometer is needed. Yup, you got it right. This is now an annual festive recipe.

I don’t know about you,when I made old-fashion fudge, I’d think I reached the soft ball stage and something happened. Sometimes, I had sugar granules on the wall of the pot which created a graney fudge. Sometimes the fudge wouldn’t set and became a soft scoop with a spoon fudge.

My grandma and my mother made the great fudge at Christmas. When I was child, I used to sneak it when my mother wasn’t watching and pop a piece into my mouth. This fudge is ever bit as good as the one they use to make but soooo much simpler.

 

MAMIE EISENHOWER’S FUDGE

Yields about 6 pounds

1 Tablespoon plus 1/3 cup butter, divided

3 milk chocolate candy bars (two 7 ounces, one 1.55 ounces,(NOTE:  Make sure you read the ounces. I had to buy more candy because I couldn’t find the exact ounces in the candy bars and just brought three, large candy bars. Yes, I admit I should know better. I had to go to the store twice and get more chocolate bars. No, I didn’t eat them. 🙂  

4 cups (24 ounces) semisweet chocolate chip

1 jar (7 ounces) marshmellow cream

1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

4 1/2 cups sugar

2 cups chopped walnuts

 

1.  Line a 13-in x 9-in pan with foil and butter the foil with 1 tablespoon butter set aside.

2.  In a large heat-proof bowl, combine the candy bars, chocolate chips and marshmallow crème, set aside.

3.  In a large heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the milk, sugar and remaining butter.

4.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

5.  Pour over chocolate mixture stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth and creamy.

6.  Stir in walnuts.

7.  Pour into prepared pan. (Not so fast. Let the whole family scrape out the fudge with a spoon. Make sure you have one too,  🙂

8.  Cover and refrigerate until firm. (DONE!!)

9.  Using foil, lift fudge out of pan, cut into 1-in squares.

10. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. ( I bet you can’t eat one!) J

 

Let me know what you think of this fudge. I hope you like it and this makes your best fudge ever. I’ll be  posting my next blog on Thursday, December 12, Christmas Humor, and December 13, Bible verse of the week. Finally, the usual blog on Sunday.

Please drop me a line or let me know if you have some favorite Christmas recipes. Remember, Jesus saves and He is the reason for the season. John 3:16.  Get on your knees, Confess your sins, Believe he removed all of your sins. Take the gift and what a beautiful gift He gives us. Tell someone.

God Bless you all. Until the next time. sle
