Remarkable Fudge

Remarkable Fudge

This is my and my family's favorite fudge. I got this recipe
from my Mom. 

Remarkable Fudge

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 
just right.

 The fun part of adding the chocolate and marshmallow


   Happy Cooking!
