Recipe Thursday #30: Chocolate Fudge

Since the next Recipe Thursday falls on Thanksgiving, I thought I'd do the post a few days early. You may even want to make this fudge for your snacking needs on Thursday. It's a simple recipe, slightly modified from the Nestle recipe I'd been using for years. But, it's a staple around here for the holidays!

Chocolate Fudge


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (I used raw)
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk (you can get two full batches of fudge from one 12oz can of Carnation)
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Line 8 or 9 inch square baking dish with foil, set aside
  2. In medium heavy duty saucepan or pot, combine sugar, evaporated milk, and salt
  3. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring continuously
  4. Continue to boil, stirring continuously, for 4 minutes
  5. Remove pot from heat
  6. Stir in vanilla
  7. Stir in marshmallows and chocolate chips and stir vigorously until marshmallows are melted
  8. Pour or spoon into prepared baking dish and smooth evenly
  9. Refrigerate for 1 to 1 1/2 hours
  10. Lift from pan, remove foil, and cut into small squares to serve
  11. Store in airtight container at room temperature, extra refrigeration will cause fudge to dry out and be brittle
