    • Here's a couple that I've tried. The Peanut Butter Fudge is really good!

      Remarkable Fudge

      1 cup butter
      12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
      1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
      1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 1/4 cups evaporated milk
      4 cups white sugar

      Directions

      1. Line a 13x9 inch baking dish with foil and butter the foil.
      2. In the top half of a double boiler combine the butter or margarine, evaporated milk and sugar. Cook on medium heat for 12 minutes or until it reaches a temperature of 236 degrees F (112 degrees C). Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips, vanilla and marshmallow creme. Stir until chocolate chips melt then mix in the chopped walnuts. Spread mixture into the prepared pan. Score into squares while still warm. Refrigerate until firm then cut along the scored lines.

            • hahaha Liquid fudge...that would make an awesome flavour milkshake!
              I'm sure the one I have definitely has timing instructions, otherwise it would've been a flop, but I remember it being nice....just got to dig out the recipe for you

                  Hey lana is there a another way to determine if the fudge has reached 236 degrees without having a candy thermometer?

                  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
                    1/2 cup butter
                    5 oz (150ml) evaporated milk
                    1 teaspoon vanilla

                    Place in a heavy bottomed pan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently. I like tp use a wooded spoon. Bring to a gentle boil and continue cooking and stiring for 5 mins. Remove from heat add:
                    3 cups chocolate chips - I like to use Ghiradelli 60% Cacao
                    one jar marshmallow cream (7 oz or 198g)
                    Stir until melted in and blended. (I will add the chips first and get pretty well blended then add the marshmallow and leave it a little streaky.
                    Stir in 2 cups broken walnuts

                    Spead into a well buttered, glass baking pan. (a good sized flat cake pan works well)
                    Will set up as cools.

                    • What I like about this recipe is less sugar, and never had it fail. I,m at high altitude and do let it cook a minute or two longer.

                      • I know this isn't fudge, but it might as well do!
                        I made some Christmas Chocolate Brownies on Sunday, which were divine, they included white chocolate chips and raspberries. I will get the recipe for you tomorrow. You should definitely give them a try!
