Nut Fudge Recipe

Some 17 years ago, when I was dating the man who is now my husband, his mother gave me this recipe for his favorite fudge. It's a tasty treat that's so simple to make.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:117 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 12 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2 cups pecans or walnuts, chopped

Directions

  • 1. Line a 13x9-in. pan with foil; butter the foil with 1 tablespoon butter and set aside. Break German chocolate into 1-in. pieces; place in a bowl. Add the chocolate chips and marshmallow creme; set aside.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, bring the sugar, milk and remaining butter to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slowly pour over chocolate mixture; stir until mixture is smooth and blended. Stir in nuts.
  • 3. Pour into prepared pan. Let stand at room temperature until cool. Cut into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 2-1/4 pounds.

"This fudge is great. I cannot believe that some of the reviews said it was too sweet. Don't they know fudge is supposed to be very sweet .This recipe is excellent. If they do not want sweet they need to not make fudge."

"Wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! We made fudge to give to our neighbors for Christmas. One of our friends sent us a thank you note saying the last piece of fudge created martial strife as they negotiated for the last piece! LOL

The fudge was very easy to make and one batch makes a ton. We keep thinking about this fudge so I have a feeling we won't wait until Christmas to make it again!"

"I know this recipe from one of my Mom's old cookbooks (Mamie Eisenhower's Fudge) and have been making it for many years. I make a dark chocolate version of this fudge for my Mom, just change the chocolates, you can also add dried fruits instead or with the nuts. In the dark version, dried craisins, cherries are delicious (at least according to my Mom-it's her favorite). To Encscally-there are two reasons that fudge will not set: one is the boil, meaning the boil should be a full scale boil, all across the top, then immediately reduce the heat; second humid conditions-any kind of dampness, even cold dampness can mess with this type of fudge--could be from a humidifier, the outdoor weather, even the dishwasher. I hope that helps. Thanks so much for posting the recipe, its an old recipe and its sad how many of those get lost, also I will forward it to my son, so that I don't have to type my own and it's many variations--"

"Have made this recipe for years. Wonderful. If you are just starting to make fudge always use a wooden spoon. There is less chance of the fudge becoming grainy. I always use a candy thermometer and test it before each use. Also if you don't have a candy thermometer be sure the candy has come to a good boil and don't turn down too low so it stays at a medium boil."

"i HAVE USED A SLIGHTLY ALTERED VERSION OF THIS fUDGE. USE MINI MARSHMALLOWS IN PLACE OF MARSHMELLOW CREME.AND INSTEAD OF CHOCO. CHIPS USE ANY VARIETY OR COMBINATION. RECIPE IS FROM 1961 BETTER HOMES & GARDEN. IT MAKES A 9 X13 CAKE PAN. TRY IT IS MORE CREAMY AND MMM GOOD ."

"To Enscally: Some years back I was told to never make candy when it's raining or if you're running a humidifier 'cause the extra humidity can change the outcome of the recipe. Of course, I have no idea what your circumstances were, but that's something to keep in mind."

"Sure do remember Mamie.  I got the recipe years and years ago and it has never failed me.  I, too, got it out of a newspaper.  Another thing that you can do if anyone uses the  other marshmallow cream recipe is to use the dark chocolate chips they have now.  Delicious!"
