Easy Chocolate Fudge

Easy Fudge Recipe

My Mom is a fabulous cook and an even better baker, and she would always make so many amazing treats around Christmas. I don’t know how she managed to get it all done with 5 kids at her feet, but mom’s holiday baking was always a monumental event!  My mom got this easy fudge recipe from a lady who used to own a candy shop an it is literally the best fudge I’ve ever made. So simple to make, and so delicious that I could totally eat a whole pan by myself. (Seriously, I have issues waiting for it to cool before I dig in!)

How to Make Fudge

This easy fudge recipe starts by mixing chocolate chips and marshmallow cream in LARGE bowl. Then, in a large pan on the stove, combine some butter, sugar and milk. You’ll stir this occasionally until it boils, and then constantly for 7 minutes. Next, add some vanilla and then pour the butter over chocolate chip/marshmallow mixture. Beat this with large spoon until creamy. You can add nuts or crushed candy canes at this point, or just leave it creamy. Pour the fudge into a 9×13 pan that has been buttered on the bottom and the sides, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 6 hours. (If you can wait that long!) Cut into cubes, serve and enjoy!
