DollyGirl and I made fudge today. The recipe has been handed down from my mama and is a lip-smacking holiday tradition. I'd like to say "Thanks" to Blogdom for the fun that's been had in '07 by sharing the recipe!
4 & 1/2 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 stick butter
Pour these ingredients into a large pot and melt on medium to high heat. Stir!! When it reaches a boil, turn the heat on high and keep stirring for 8 minutes. This is critical! The mixture will become frothy.
When the 8 minutes are up, move the pot to a cool burner and add---
12 oz. chocolate chips (you can substitute any flavor and change the fudge)
1 pint marshmallow creme
8 Hershey Bars ( approximately 12 oz. of this candy bar...you might be tempted to do a substitution here, but do NOT! Trust me.)
If everything cooked correctly, the fudge will be heavy, creamy and will slide easily into a pan. I use butter to minimally grease the bottom of a pyrex dish. This recipe will fill one 9x13 dish and one 8x8 dish.
