Easy to Make Chocolate Fudge

I would recommend this for someone who has never made fudge, but has wanted to try. The recipe is super easy and it is super tasty.

1 12 oz. package of semisweet chocolate pieces(Baking chocolate, not chocolate chips)
1 7 oz jar marshmallow creme
1 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
4 cups sugar

Butter a 9 x 13 pan and set aside. Combine chocolate pieces and marshmallow creme, set aside for later.
In a HEAVY 4 quart saucepan combine milk, butter and sugar. Place over medium heat and stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until mixture comes to a boil. Boil, stirring occasionally for 6 minutes.

Pour this mixture over your marshmallow and chocolate pieces mixture. Using a wooden spoon beat the mixture. It will get creamy and the chocolate will melt. Pour the fudge in a prepared pan and let it sit for several hours, preferably overnight.

Cut up into 1 inch squares, it makes a lot of fudge. It will also keep well in the refrigerator for several days so enjoy. This recipe make 117 pieces.


For Rocky Road Fudge, you can add marshmallows and nuts.

Is there a sub for marshmallow creme? Or a recipe you can make yourself? I have all the ingredients but that on hand and I don't want to schlep to the store just for that.
And btw, I love the way you try to lighten your recipes.
