10 Min

We don't know why they call this turtle fudge, but it's kind of ironic because when we think of turtles, we think of something that moves slowly. And that's not this recipe...it moves really fast!

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 24 caramel candies, quartered

What to Do

  1. Line a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil so that it extends up over sides of dish. Coat foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, and milk over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling and stirring 5 minutes then remove from heat. Add marshmallows and chocolate chips and stir until they melt. Stir in walnuts, vanilla, and caramel candies.
  3. Pour into foil-lined dish and allow to cool to room temperature. Cut into squares. Lift foil from baking dish, then remove fudge squares. Cover and store in refrigerator.

Suggestions: cut back sugar to 1 1/2 cups; increase butter to 1 1/2 sticks( 3/4 cup); use the small 5oz. size of evaporated milk. Stir continuously over medium heat until candy thermometer reaches "soft ball" stage. Remove from heat and stir in marshmallows (or 7oz container of Mallowcreme), choc. chips, vanilla(1 tsp), caramel pieces, and nuts. Work fast to blend it together and pour into greased pan (9 X 13")

wow 2 1/2 cups of Sugar?? thats a lot of sugar!

I think the name comes from being comprised of nuts, caramel & chocolate. The original Turtle candy was made by putting pecans down with a piece of caramel in the middle of 3 pecans & melting it over the pecans and then either dunking or adding the melted chocolate on top.

A friend and I thought this sounded delightful and tried to make it this past weekend (to have for Christmas). We both ended up with the same results, after faithfully following the directions - overcooked/sugary fudge that you can't cut through because of the caramel pieces. I was able to salvage a couple of pieces but the rest went into the trash. I would NOT recommend this recipe to anyone. Sounded good in theory, but wasn't in reality. Bummer - and a waste of ingredients!

Wow. And here I was ready to make this over next weekend. Does it matter whether you cook over gas or electric heat??????????????

Wow, me to.
