My Mom’s Fudge

My Mom’s Fudge

My mom’s way of getting things done at home was by offering us treats for every task we finished.

This was a very smart way because she used to make this Uber amazing fudge. It was so delicious that it was difficult for us to say no to anything she asks for. I have learned some good parenting tips from her this way! My interest in cooking is highly influenced by my mother’s cooking. It all started with watching her make something in the kitchen, she would get me to taste it in between to understand different flavors. Later I got into trying a few of her recipes and this was one of them. The first try was a mess, the mixture got burnt and I was very upset. But she gave me the confidence to try the recipe again and the next time I totally nailed it. This is a classic family recipe and I’m sure you will love it.

To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:

Ingredients

2 and 1/2 cups white granulated sugar

3/4 cup butter

2/3 cup evaporated milk

12-ounce package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

7-ounce jar marshmallow cream (also called marshmallow fluff)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a 3 quart HEAVY saucepan over high heat, combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Use a wooden spoon to stir slowly until butter melts, scraping sides of pan to get all the sugar crystals.

Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly with a long wooden spoon. Once it starts boiling, set a timer for 5 minutes and turn the heat down to medium so that you don’t burn your fingers off–it should be boiling the full 5 minutes. Stir constantly.

When the timer goes off, remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Stir until all chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Add marshmallow creme and beat with a wooden spoon until well blended. Add vanilla and mix well. Immediately pour into the prepared pan.

Let cool to room temperature. (Good luck with that.)

Slice and serve! Store on the counter covered.
