Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
3 cups sugar
1 bag semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 cups (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup)
1 jar (7 oz.) Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups pecans, chopped (optional)

Step 4: Step 3

Stir on Medium to High heat until it reaches 234 degrees F with a candy thermometer.

Step 6: Step 5

Remove from heat. Add 2 tsp. vanilla. Add marshmallow creme. STIR REALLY FAST, and DON'T STOP! Use wooden spoon (also good for beating small children), no electric appliances allowed, it ruins the taste. Beat until smooth. Really smooth. Like Lou Rawls' voice.

Step 8: Step 6

Pour fudge (with or without pecans) into buttered pan. Smooth over with spatula if desired. Sprinkle pecans on top (optional).

Step 10: Step 8

ENJOY! : D

i'm gonna use this recipe to make some medicated fudge. :D for those of you that know what i'm talking about, you know you'd love it. for those that don't, it's probably better that it remains that way. ;) anyways, wish me luck. yall have a wonderful day

Hey, the word easy should be slapped there too. I just broke up a bunch of chocolate, threw butter, sugar, peanut butter, expired vanilla extract and cream in and then microwaved the goop. You see? 11-year-olds know how to survive. Anyway, do you think this would make a good present for my parents? I have absolutely no money I could use...

To bad I cant make this (i would... but we dont have chocolate chips, and my mom doesnt want to buy any...).
But there is a great seceret i learned... how to use cake mix for brownies... so i will make brownies.
for each container (1 Lb, 2.2 oz) of cake mix, instead of adding what they tell you to add, add this -
2/3 cup Condesed milk (evaporated works to)
2/3 cup butter (melted)
Cook at 350 for 20 minutes, then for 5 minute intervals until done.
You could use a whole bar of chocolate. Just mince it. Heck, melt a whole pound of chocolate if you have to. I just microwaved the choco.

I make a similar recipe. I like to add a 1/2 cup of peanut butter. I think it cuts the sweetness a little. You can tell by the glossy look of the fudge in the picture that you cooked it just right.
Oh, YEAH! Chocolate and peanut butter all together! You can actually replace all the butter with peanut butter and part of the marshmallow creme, too.

I can't find the marshmallow creme, what can I substitute it?
rimila (author)  transistor3 years ago
Melt 7oz of marshmallows.... that should do the trick. Enjoy (;
Fantastic! thanks!
the steps are already marked out you didn't have to title each step the step number it made it make less sense example your step 8 is the sites step 10 your step 4 is the sites step 5
Wow,
I saw this at the bottom of a page in the related section and i thought it said "Fuc*ing Amazing Cake" not "Make Amazing Fudge"
Good instructable though =]

In my day this recipe was called "Mamie Eisenhower's fudge". I think I just dated myself. ;-)

This is a good recipe but, I know you got it off the back of the marshmallow creme bottle. I looked on the back of mine and found the exact same recipe.
rimila (author)  goatgirly5 years ago
Yes, it's true. Our daughter wanted to share the step-by-step, taking the photos and adding silly comments throughout. It was a fun family project that I highly recommend. Whatever the recipe's origins, you can't argue with its delicious success!
true, true. And great 'ible for a little kid.

What if I don't have a food thermometer? How do I know when to stop and add in the chips?
rimila (author)  alucy5 years ago
Keep a rolling boil for approximately 5 minutes, stirring constantly. That should get you where you want to be temperature-wise. Enjoy!!!
I like the sarcasm through out the instructable =P

my mom makes this all the time, except she makes mint fudge and it is AWESOME.
i so recommend that people try it.

I did some variations on this recipe that were good. Instead of the vanilla, use some rum extract and use raisins instead of pecans. Or, in place of vanilla, use mint, or orange extract and skip the pecans in both cases. Many recipes call for a couple of tablespoons of butter near the end. Use peanut butter instead. Still, it is hard to do better than pecans and chocolate, especially blanched pecans.
