This is my and my family's favorite fudge. I got this recipe
from my Mom.
4 Cups sugar
2 5 1/3 ounce cans evaporated milk
1 Cup butter or margarine
1 12 - ounce package (2 cups) semisweet Chocolate pieces
1 7- ounce jar marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla
Butter the sides of heavy 3-quart saucepan. In it combine sugar, evaporated milk,
and butter or margarine. Cook and stir over medium heat till mixture comes to a
boiling. Cook to 236 degrees (soft-ball stage), about 12 mins, stirring freequently
(mixture should boil gently over entire surface). Remove from heat. Add remaining
ingredients; stir till combined adn chocolate is melted. Turn into a buttered 9x9x2-inch
or 13x9x9-inch pan. Score into squares while warm; cut when firm. If fudge is soft, chill.
Makes about 3 1/2 pounds.
This is how I open my evaporated milk cans. My
girls always love to do this part.
I melt the butter first. Then once it is all melted. I add the
sugar and evaporated milk to it.
Once it comes to a boil I put the timer on if you don't have
a candy thermometer. They cam out to about the same.
I did have to this time do it a bit longer but since I had
the candy thermometer I went to what it says.
I have done it before with the timer and it turns out
The fun part of adding the chocolate and marshmallow
