My DW introduced me to this - California Living cubit: California Cuisine forum: See's fudge recipe
shortly after we were married. It's as good today as it was then. It's so very easy to make, and tastes phenomenal. There is a small difference between the recipe I was taught, and the one in the link; our recipe calls for one bag of Kraft Stay Puff Marshmallows, while the original calls for Marshmallow cream. Both recipes give you a very good fudge.

Using white chocolate chips, or butterscotch chip will give you other fudge flavors. I would suspect that you could use a recipe for making marshmallow cream, but use maple syrup instead of corn syrup or sugar to make a very good maple fudge.

Kades, you have my word that this is easy to make, and delicious. See's candies are really good candies, (I adore their fruit filled chocolates, especially the blueberry) and there fudge recipe is excellent.

Thought I'd let you know, I made a batch of this fudge and it's now in the dish and setting up. I tasted it and it's wonderful and oh so good. Taking what I made to the nurses along with some peanut butter fudge for them to try. Thank you so much the boy's are going to have so much fun making this up.

Dang. I'll have to dig up the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk fudge recipe, possibly the best I've ever had.

Shouldn't they have it on the side of their can in the same way that Tollhouse has a chocolate chip cookie recipe on the bag? :) It's all you'd ever need.

That's one of the "cheat" recipes that I whole heartedly endorse! My mom is an old school fudge maker, she always poo pooed this recipe, I gave her some that I had made, and now she's a convert! This is truly a "no fail" recipe (when followed).

I still make fudge the old fashioned way. Always stays firm even out of the fridge.

2 cups of sugar, 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk, 1 tsp of vanilla and half a brick of butter (9 ounces)

Slowly melt the butter in a heavy base pan, mix in the sugar and stir over a low heat till sugar desolves, add condensed milk and simmer gently while stirring all the time till the mixture turns a light caramel colour and reaches the soft ball stage. Turn your heat on high and whisk in the vanilla. Pour into flat glass oven dish. Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Might this be what you're looking for? Foolproof Chocolate Fudge I've not tried it. The recipe is very simple. I could see it working.
