How to Make Fudge

How to Make Fudge the Easy Way


1. In a saucepan, heat sugar mixture and let simmer. Add evaporated milk, 1-2/3 cups sugar, and a pinch of salt to sauce pan and bring to simmer for about 5 minutes (until sugar is melted).


2. Line a 9- x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Lin the pan with foil and spray with cooking spray (or butter). This will allow for easy removal later.


3.  Remove sugar mixture from heat and add remaining ingredients. Once sugar is fully melted, remove sauce pan from heat. Add 1-1/2 cups marshmallows, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, a little vanilla extract, and nuts of any kind (macadamia, cashew, almonds, etc...).


4. Stir until ingredients are melted. Heat from the milk and sugar mixture will melt the added ingredients. Tip: Smaller marshmallows will melt faster than larger ones.


 5.  Pour mixture into pan and refrigerate. Once fudge mixture is fully incorporated, pour into foil lined pan, even it off, and place in fridge to firm up.


6. Cut, serve, and enjoy. Once fudge is firm, remove from fridge, use the foil to lift fudge from pan, cut into squares, serve and enjoy!
