Fudge #SundaySupper

Holidays are all about family, friends, and tradition.  Today, Beate from Galactopdx is hosting this #SundaySupper “Home for the Holidays” event. We are all sharing recipes and traditions from our families.

In my family we have a tradition of making fudge every Christmas Eve.  We don’t make it any other day of the year, just the 24th.  It has to be one of my all time favorite holiday treats.  You can often find me sneaking pieces Christmas morning while we are opening presents.  This is the recipe we have been making in my family forever.  I believe it was originally from the back of the marshmallow fluff jar, but I am not completely sure.  You can easily add nuts if that is your thing, but I am a purist and like it without.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and enjoy your time with family and friends.  I am taking a couple days off from the blog, but will be back with lots of appetizer ideas for your New Years parties.


Fudge #SundaySupper
 
Serves: 36
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
 
Smooth and creamy chocolate fudge
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk (I used fat free)
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff
  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Butter or grease a 9x13 inch pan. Set aside.
  2. Mix the sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until a rolling boil. Boil for about 3 minutes, until 234 degrees. Make sure to calibrate your thermometer and adjust accordingly. Also, you can test in a bowl of cold water, and it should come together in a soft ball. Remove from the heat. Add the chocolate chips and marshmallow cream, mix until well combined. Stir in the vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Let set until it hardens, approximately 90 minutes.

  15. What a fun tradition! I’ve actually never made fudge before (I know, I’m so bad) but that really needs to change – I think I’ll have to tackle this in the new year! :)

  16. Your fudge looks so……. creamy and delicious! My mom always made fudge but it’s one thing I don’t do – I’m thinking that might need to change! :)

  17. I am inspired to make fudge again. I had to failed attempts this year and gave up but after seeing so much fudge on blogs this holiday season I want to give it a try again.

  18. Christmas is not the same to me without fudge. I actually do eat it for breakfast on Christmas morning. Nice to see it is a part of your holiday traditions too.

  19. YUM, I love homemade fudge. This looks awesome!

  20. Homemade fudge is simply the best! My sister brings it every year for Christmas – love traditions!! I wish I had a piece right now. :-)

  21. This looks delicious! Who can resist homemade fudge? (I adore your little snowman helper!) :D

  22. I am a fudge purist, too, though I have never made it and just buy it at the Jersey Shore. And I am known to have Christmas cookies for breakfast on Christmas morning.

  23. Mmm…marshmallow fluff! Your fudge looks perfect, so thick, creamy and chocolatey! I hope you had a lot of presents this year so that you could sneak a lot of this fudge while you were opening them ;) Happy holidays to you and your family!

  24. mmmmmm fudge. Enough said!
    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  25. Fudge-classic and delicious!

  26. Lora @cakeduchess says:

    Creamy and wonderful. I would love a piece now, Erin!

  27. Home made fudge is sooooo good!

  28. Hey, wait a minute. Why are the pieces so small? :D

    And I agree – no nuts in fudge! Fudge is supposed to be smooth and not have chunks in it. This version looks perfect.

    I hope you had a super Christmas!
