Makin’ Grandma Diane’s Fudge

I love dessert.  For years, I started my day with a little bit of chocolate and a hard boiled egg (AKA breakfast).  At three o’clock I like to have a chocolate chip cookie and after dinner, a little something sweet.  My daughter, Pistol used to make fudge with a friend’s grandmother a few years back.  Trying to keep up with the posting monkey I pulled this one out of the archives.  It’s amazing how much younger Pistol looked two years ago.  I don’t typically eat fudge but I do love it.

Ingredients

3 cups sugar-$.50

3/4 cup  (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine-$1.00

1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup) – $1.29

1-1/2 pkg.  (12 squares) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped- $4.00

1 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Crème -$1.69

1 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

LINE a 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan; set aside. Place sugar, butter and evaporated milk in large heavy saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 4 min. or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat.

POUR immediately into prepared pan; spread to form even layer in pan. Let stand at room temperature 4 hours or until completely cooled.  We ended up sticking it in the refrigerator because it still hadn’t set.  Cut into 1-inch squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature

    That’s exactly what I need right now – a huge piece of CHOCOLATE fudge!  Looks like your helper knows exactly what she is doing too 🙂

    This is very similar to my dad’s fudge recipe and it is out of this world delicious. I loved helping him make it and now I enjoy making fudge with my children.
