Triple Chocolate Fudge Recipe

This recipe makes more than enough to share with family and friends. It's the ultimate, yummy gift! —Linette Shepherd, Williamston, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:234 servings


  • 4 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 2 jars (7 ounces each) marshmallow creme
  • 4 cups chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1. Line two 13-in. x 9-in. pans with foil and grease the foil with 4 teaspoons butter. In a heavy Dutch oven, combine the sugar, milk, salt and the remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage).
  • 2. Remove from the heat. Stir in German sweet chocolate and the chocolate chips until smooth. Fold in the marshmallow creme, pecans and vanilla. Spread into prepared pans.
  • 3. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in airtight containers. Yield: 6-3/4 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

"I have been making this fudge for the last few years for Christmas, everyone seems to love it and ask for it. One year I didn't have enough German chocolate so I added white chocolate to make up the difference! Now that is how I make it all the time!"

"Did I read the recipe wrong or something? After it came to the soft boil stage I put all that chocolate in and it immediately turned grainy and I couldn't get it out of the pot let alone put the fluff in it. What's the secret?"

"This set up too quickly as I could not even get it out of the dutch oven without bending my metal spoon! It tastes good and was gobbled up but definitely did not look like the picture."
