Milk Chocolate Fudge
Mix in a heavy 2 quart pan:
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1-7 ounce jar marshmallow topping
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium when bubbles appear all over the top of the mixture. Stir for 8 minutes.
Remove from heat and add 2 cups milk chocolate chips. Stir until melted.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup chopped nuts. Stir to combine.
Pour into greased 8" square pan. Cool thoroughly.
A Christmas doesn't go by that someone in my family asks for me to make fudge. This is my go-to recipe for fudge. I have been making this recipe since I was a teenager. I got the recipe from my mom. It is a recipe from Hershey's. It is definitely a family favorite. I have tried other recipes for fudge, but this is one I come back to year after year. It has a smooth, creamy texture and is easy to make.
I have varied the recipe by substituting 2 cups mint chocolate chips for the milk chocolate ones. I have added 2 Tablespoons Irish Cream Liqueur or 2 Tablespoons Raspberry Liqueur in place of the vanilla. I have made it with just about every kind of nut: walnuts, pecan, hazelnuts. I sometimes make it without nuts. It is a no-fail recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
