Excellent recipe! Just like how my mom made me when I was a little girl, she called it Fudge Candy but can't seem to find the recipe now since she passed. My stepsons went crazy on these! Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing.
I agree with using mini marshmallows and you get a nicer fudge if you buy good chocolate. I prefer Guittard chocolate.
I've been using this recipe for fudge for over 50 years...but it is called Fannie Mae Fudge. It's always rich, fudgy
We tried this recipe, and no matter how hard we tried the consistency came out best described as that of caramel. The taste wasn't as good as other fudge recipes, but worst of all, the thick gooey consistency made eating it unbearable, we threw it out, a waste of money. I have read other reviews that stated this actually a version of Mackinac Fudge, and not the original recipe, I can only hope the original Mackinac Recipe is better than this one.
The Fantasy Fudge is the only fudge I make, around the holidays. Another variation is to use white chocolate chips, then substitute the flavoring of your choice for the vanilla, e.g., maple flavoring.
I haven't even made this, but it's similar to my mom's and my husband's mom's recipes. I do wonder why the editor's note says to test your candy thermometer; the recipe instructions don't use it.
My mom made this back in the 1950's. I still make it today. Differences are, evaporated milk instead of milk, 3 Bakers Sweet choc bars, instead of the milk choc, One 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows, instead of big ones and I always add 2 cups of nuts. It's a very rich darker fudge. It's been a winner with my family for almost 70 years.
I’ve lived in Mi all my life, have been to Mackinac Island numerous times
2 things: 1) this is NOT the Mackinac Fudge formula. This has been around under a great many names, for many years. 2) Is there something missing here? The Editor's note says to calibrate one's candy thermometer, but I didn't see any instruction that said to use one. Why calibrate, if one isn't going to use it??????
