Instructions

  1. Wash your hands. Assemble and measure all ingredients. Chop walnuts to desired size.
  2. Grease the 8 x 8 pan with a little vegetable oil.
  3. Put evaporated milk and sugar into the saucepan and stir to mix. Put on stove burner at medium-high and stir constantly.
  4. Add the liquid vegetable oil to the mixture on the stove and stir in. Stir while it boils for 3 minutes. If the boiling bubbles rise to near the top of the saucepan, turn down the heat level a little.
  5. Turn off the heat. Add the marshmallow cream and continue to stir constantly. This may take a little more muscle to get it evenly mixed.
  6. Add the chocolate chips and walnut pieces and stir to mix. This will take harder stirring.
  7. Pour into the 8 x 8 serving pan. Allow to cool.

How to Store Fudge

This fudge keeps well so it can be on hand for days for yourself and your guests. Also, it is a great food gift which can be made days ahead. It can be kept out of the refrigerator if the room is around 60 to 70 degrees F or cooler.

If your rooms are very humid or warmer than that, though, I recommend storing the fudge in the refrigerator. This will make it firmer and I would then treat it the way one serves cheese: when you know in advance that the fudge will be served, remove it from the refrigerator a few hours beforehand.

The "Three Musketeers" Candy Bar Variation

If you would like something lighter and fluffier with less intense chocolate flavor, similar to a Three Musketeers candy bar, use 1 whole cup of marshmallow fluff in the recipe, instead of 1/2 cup.
