Introduction: Making Amazing Fudge

Great fudge is easy to make if you know how. This instructable will give you step - by - step directions for making fudge so good your friends will beg for the recipe.

But you won't give it to them. : P

Step 1: 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 2: Step 1

Combine 1 1/2 sticks of butter with 3 cups of sugar in a heavy saucepan.

Step 3: Step 2

Add 2/3 Evaporated Milk to butter-sugar and stir.

Step 4: Step 3

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

Step 5: Step 4

Add chocolate chips. : D Still on burner.

Things move very fast from this point forward. Have your chocolate chips ready to pour, your marshmallow creme open, and your vanilla and teaspooner ready.

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 7: Adding Pecans

If you add nuts, now is the time. Blanch in oven at 350 for 5 minutes, then remove and add to fudge mixture.

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 9: Step 7: Finito!

Let cool after pouring, but do not refrigerate until it has completely set up.

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.

    Looks delicious, I will have to make some.

    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.

    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 =]

    i think i am mildly dyslexic because i do that alot, and often read words out in a backwards order or backwards entirely XD

    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.

    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!
