An easy one is off the back of the Kraft marshmallow creme jar! Follow it exactly---use nuts if people like them.........more recipes will follow I'm sure!

OK. in my opinion, one thing that does NOT belong in fudge in marshmallow!

I like the original Hersheys cocoa fudge recipe..

Easy fudge recipe

Chocolate Fudge


2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped PLANTERS Walnuts



LINE 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Set aside. Microwave chocolate and milk in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 3 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 2 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Blend in vanilla. Stir in walnuts.

SPREAD into prepared pan.

REFRIGERATE 2 hours or until firm. Lift fudge from pan, using foil handles. Cut into 48 pieces. Fudge can be stored in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week. For creamier fudge, remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature about 1 hour before serving.

I have made this minus the nuts and vanilla. Quick and delicious!

Regards,
Snowball

I mix together 1/2 stick of butter, 2 12 oz bags of chocolate chips (milk choc), about a 1/2 cup of peanut butter.Then when that's all melted together and stirred till smooth, I add a cup of nuts and about 2 cups of marshmallows and stir till they're melted. If I want it to look swirled, I stop stirring when the marshmallows are melted, but not totally mixed in. I've added evaporated milk, but that makes it not as firm.

I have a weakness for fudge and have tried recipes where you start from scratch and cook it with a candy thermometer. I don't think they taste any better than the fudge that you simply melt the above ingredients together and I don't need to tell you which is faster and easier! ;)

Good luck! I hope that whatever fudge you end up taking is a hit with everyone!

My husband found this on AllRecipes.com at Christmas. It has become a favorite of our whole family. The only thing we add is black walnuts.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
DIRECTIONS

In a medium saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Mix in corn syrup, and milk until well blended. Add butter, and heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Stir occasionally.

Remove from heat, and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is thick and loses its gloss. Stir in vanilla, and pour into a buttered 9x9 inch baking dish. Let cool until set. Cut into small squares to serve.
