Does anyone know a good recipe for fudge (not using a microwave)? I love fudge and there is a little shop almost 2 hours from here that we used to go to and get it. It's closed now and I'd love to learn to make fudge...all different kinds. There's tons of recipes online but I don't want to spend countless hours trying to find a good one. Any suggestions? Maybe an old family favorite one? "COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS" **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have always used the recipe on the back if the marshmallow cream jar. You need 3 cups of sugar, 3/4 cup of margarine(1.5 sticks), a five ounce can of evaporated milk(NOT condensed), one jar of marshmallow cream(small one for one batch), one teaspoon of vanilla and a 12 ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips. It would also be a bit easier if you have a candy thermometer. Combine sugar, margarine, and evaporated milk in a heavy sauce pan, heat on a medium setting, stirring CONSTANTLY to prevent burning. Bring mixture to a full boil and continue stirring until thermometer has reached between 230 and 235 degrees Fahrenheit(113-116 Celsius) . This should take between three and five minutes depending on your stove and heat setting. When correct temperature has been reached remove from heat and add marshmallow cream and chocolate chips, mix throughly, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla just before setting to cool. Pour mixture into any size cake pan that will give desired depth, and set out to cool. Cooling will take about 3-4 hours. Then remove cooled fudge from cooling pan and cut into desired size pieces. Now comes the best part ENJOY!!!!!!! Things like nuts can be added with the marshmallow cream and chocolate chips. Actually if you want Rocky Road fudge and nuts and mini marshmallows just before pouring into pan to cool. I have enjoyed making this recipe for many many years. I have actually already made four batches this tear and will make at least that many before Christmas gets here.

In a large mixing bowl, pour the heated mixture over the confectioners sugar and mix well. Beat until smooth. Pour into an 8x8 pan, chill until firm, cut into squares and enjoy! I hope you like this, I love fudge but am allergic to chocolate so peanut butter is my favorite fudge. :)

Here is an easy foolproof recipe for fudge, I make it all the time and it always comes out great. Easy Fudge 1 1/2 stick butter/margerine 5 oz. sm can evaporated milk 3 cups sugar 1 12 bag semi sweet chocolate chips 1 7 oz jar of marshmellow cream Take your butter, milk and sugar, mix together over med heat, stirring all the time. After it comes to a gentle boil continue stirring for another 5 minutes. Then take off the heat and add chocolate and marshmellow, stir until well blended, spread in a lightly buttered pan. Varietions. You can add chopped nuts if you want when stirring in the chocolate and marshmellow, you can also add a spoon of peanut butter if you want. This recipe is on the back of a jar of Kraft marshmellow. I have been making this fudge for 25 yrs. and it always comes out good. There have been times I have seen other recipes close to this one, this particular one is the one I use.

I do not really do much fudge making, actually, lately I do not make much of anything. My mother always used the recipe that came on the back of Kraft marshmallow creme. That was the only recipe she would use. I hope that helps some. Happy feasting!

Get a can of Condensed milk. I use the Fat-Free kind. Then I can eat Fudge without any guilt. It has a very easy recipe printed on it. Uses only three ingredients. No baking. You can use different variations like Nuts, Peanut butter or morsals of dried fruits etc. It is very esay to make and also tastes good.

Yes, I know a wonderful recipe. Unfortunately, I don't have it handy to share it, but you should be able to find it online with your favorite search engine. Simply type in "see's candy fudge recipe" and you should find it.

The best fudge I have ever had requires little work and not candy thermometer....use the recipe on the marshmallow fluff container it is perfect and you can make it peanut butter fudge too. I have also been known to make chocolate on the bottom and peanut butter on the top for fudge. The recipe has never failed me and everyone loves it.

I make fudge the lazy way. I just melt together a package of chocolate chips (or peanut butter chips, or mint chocolate chips, or whatever) and a can of sweetened condensed milk. You can add nuts if you like but it is just as good without. Everyone raves about how good my fudge is and how great I am for taking "all that time" to make it. Haha...if they only knew.

Oh, I hope you get a lot of good responses. I also would love some good tried and true recipes. I don't have very good luck when I try to make it. I don't care for the fudge with marshmallow cream in it but would love a recipe for the old fashion sugary kind. This makes me think Christmas.

Hi twoey68, here is a good, easy one for you. 375g tin evaporated milk, 100g butter, 450g caster or muscovado sugar, (muscovado is nicer). place all ingredients in a saucepan, stir and bring to the boil.Boil it for about 10 minutes, stirring all the time. (Dont let it burn on the bottom) until it reaches the soft ball stage. to test it put a half teaspoon blob of the fudge into a bowl of cold water. It should be firm but squeezable. remove from the heat and sit the bottom of the pan in a bowl of cold water. stir until the fudge cools down. It will go from smooth and shiny to looking thick and grainy. Scrap the fudge into a square tin. Let it cool, then cut into squares. Enjoy :-)
