Mom's Fantastic Holiday Fudge Recipe - Delicious! (2)Mom’s Fantastic Holiday Fudge Recipe

There’s so much to love about the holidays. Where does one even begin? There’s the smell of fresh Christmas trees and wreaths. There’s the twinkling lights that illuminate our homes and cozy, sleepy streets. There’s seeing children’s faces light up with excitement when opening presents. These are a few of my favorite things.

Following close behind those wondrous things, is the opportunity to sink my teeth into a yummy (and totally unhealthy) chunk of holiday fudge. Thanks to my friend, Lynne, you too can enjoy a mighty delicious piece (or two or three) of fudge courtesy of her Mom’s Fantastic Holiday Fudge recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
4 1/2 c. sugar
Pinch salt
14 1/2 oz. evaporated milk
1 stick butter
2 t. vanilla
12 oz. chocolate chips
12 oz. (3 bars) German sweet chocolate
1 pint (2 jars, 7oz. each) marshmallow creme
2 c. chopped nuts

DIRECTIONS:
Combine sugar, salt, butter and milk and bring to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees (soft ball stage). Mix the chocolate chips, German sweet chocolate, marshmallow creme, nuts, and vanilla in a large bowl. Pour the boiling syrup over ingredients in the bowl. Beat until the chocolate is melted and pour into a greased 9×13 pan. Let stand a few hours before cutting.

Can also put in a greased jelly roll pan.

Is your mouth watering yet? This Mom’s Fantastic Holiday Fudge recipe would be perfect for a holiday party. It also makes for a fun DIY gift. Who wouldn’t love to receive a package of holiday fudge? Heck, if they don’t want it, I’ll take it off their hands!

    Hi Kelli, I’m from NZ and we don’t have some of the ingredients that you have in the US, for example what is marshmallow cream? Is there anything that can replace it. Thanks for your tips.

      I have a recipe for fudge that requires 15 large marshmallows. You can try that instead of the cream.

      I agree with Tina. I have quite a few recipes using marshmallow creme. so I just put the equivalent amount stated in the recipe and melt it with the chocolate.

    I’ve used this recipe for years except I use semi sweet chocolate chips and I substitute the marshmallow creme for chunky peanut butter. It is delicious and everyone who tries its, Loves it.
    If you like peanut butter, try it

        Thanks for that, will be trying this. It just seemed an odd amount, given that the cans are 12 oz. Appreciate your quick reply.

      Hi Margie, I have never substituted anything for German chocolate but I’d imagine most any other kind of chocolate bars would work. Hope that helps. 🙂 Kelli
