“This is a great fudge recipe which I make every year at Christmas. The better the chocolate, the better the fudge so try not to use plain supermarket chocolate chips – use good quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli or Lindt. Milk, semisweet, or a mix of chocolates work well. This uses less sugar than other other recipes so it's less sweet - people who don't usually eat fudge because they find it too sweet like this. I usually use semi-sweet or dark chocolate. Cooking time is the time it takes for the fudge to firm up.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter a 13x9 inch pan, set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine marshmallow cream, sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt.
  3. Bring to a full boil, and cook for exactly 5 minutes (don’t guess – use a timer!), stirring constantly. The mixture will go from white to very light tan. Be careful as it tends to splatter.
  4. Remove pan from heat and add chocolate chips and vanilla.
  5. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  6. Stir in nuts if using.
  7. Pour and spread into prepared pan.
  8. Let stand at room temperature until firm.
  9. Cut into squares.
