2 Easy Fudge Recipes

Updated on March 30, 2008
 

Do you love delicious homemade fudge? After trying several times (unsuccessfully) to make fudge at home, I discovered the secret ingredient for successful fudge. As weird as it seems, if you want a fudge recipe that comes out perfectly every single time, choose one that calls for marshmallows or marshmallow crème. I have yet to figure out why, but this magic ingredient seems to result in rich and creamy fudge that sets perfectly every single time.

Flawless Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 7 ounce jar of marshmallow crème
  • 1 12 ounce can of evaporated milk
  • 2 cups of peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

Preparation Instructions:

In a saucepan over high heat, combine the sugar and the evaporated milk. Bring to a boil and continue to boil, stirring constantly for 11 minutes.

Remove the mixture from the heat source and add the remaining ingredients right away. Stir swiftly, until butter, marshmallow crème, and peanut butter are melted and thoroughly blended together.

Spray a cookie sheet or 10 X 13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the candy mixture onto the prepared pan and spread out so that it is even. Allow to cool thoroughly before cutting. Enjoy!

Foolproof Chocolate Fudge Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 16 large marshmallows
  • 1 1/3 cups of sugar
  • 2/3 of a cup of evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Preparation Instructions:

Cut the marshmallows into large chunks. Place the marshmallows, sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and salt into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for five minutes, continuing to stir constantly.

Remove from heat source and add in the chocolate pieces. Stir briskly until melted. Add the vanilla and stir.

Spray an 8 X 8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the candy mixture onto the prepared pan and spread out so that it is even. Allow to cool thoroughly before cutting. Enjoy!

Variation: If you like nuts in your fudge, add in chopped pecans or walnuts when you are stirring in the vanilla.

Enjoy Your Homemade Fudge

If you've tried unsuccessfully to make fudge before, but you really want to learn how to make your own fudge, these recipes are ideal for you. They're simple to follow and they don't require the use of a candy thermometer.
