My Favorite Fudge Recipe

Updated on October 5, 2014

Really, The Best Fudge Ever!

I admit it, I have a sweet tooth. I love anything with chocolate in it or on it so I must tell you that Fudge is one of my very favorite sweets.

When I came across this recipe in one of my Taste of Home magazines I just had to share it. If you love fudge, as I love fudge, you will certainly want to give this recipe a try. It is easy to make and truly is the very best homemade fudge EVER.

Traverse City, Michigan

A very BIG little city.

Traverse City is located in Northern Michigan on the West side of the State. It sits alongside many bays provided by the beautiful Lake Michigan.

The rolling hills, lush greenery, beautiful sand dunes and lakeshore provide many scenic drives and offer many seasonal activities. It is not just a city to enjoy in the summer but to enjoy all year long.

Traverse City is probably most well known for its cherries and is call the " Cherry Capital of the World". This city is really hopping when the Cherry Festival is held, usually around the 4th of July. But it also has wonderful winter activities such as skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling. Which brings me to it's breweries. Yes, Traverse City is also known as a beer town. Draft Magazine has named Traverse City "One of American's 3 newest emerging Beer Towns".

There are 30, yes 30 winneries located on 2 peninsulas extending from the city. Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Peninsula. The perfect time of year to visit the wineries is in the Fall. The color tour is absolutely gorgeous and while you are marveling at the scenery you can stop at each winerie and taste test the wines.

Plan a trip won't be disappointed. Oh and if you love to gamble they even have 2 Casino's nearby. The Leelanau Sands and Turtle Creek.

Mackinac Island Fudge Recipe

Easiest, best tasting fudge!

I know I am writing about Traverse City and giving you a recipe for Mackinac Fudge but this is where we get our Mackinac Island Traverse City. If you do travel further North to Mackinac Island ( another terrific vacation spot in the summer) you can also find several Fudge shops with delicious fudge. Did I tell you I got this recipe out of the Taste of Home Magazine? Love that magazine.

So here's what you will need:

2 tsp. plus 1 cup of butter

4 cups sugar

1 cup milk

25 large marshmallows

1 pkg. (11 1/1 oz.) milk chocolate chips

2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips

2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1 tsp. vanilla extract (the real deal, not imitation)

Here's are the 4 steps for preparing the Fudge:

1. Line a 13 inch by 9 inch pan with foil; grease the foil with 2 teaspoons of butter

2. In a large, heavy suacepan, combine the sugar, milk and remaining butter. bring to a rapid boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Cook without stirring for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

3. Stir in the marshmallows until melted. Add all chocolate; stir until melted. Stir in the vanilla. Immediately spread into prepared pan; cool

for 1 hour.

4. Score into 1 inch squares. Refrigerate, covered, for 3 hours or until firm. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Remove foil; cut fudge.

Store between layers of waxed paper in airtight containers.

NOTE: After adding the vanilla you may also add chopped nuts or swirl peanut butter through the fudge. Extra yummy!

Candy Dish

Serve your Fudge with style! If it doesn't get eaten right out of the pan, cut your fudge into bite size pieces and serve in a beautiful candy dish. Believe me, this fudge won't last long.

Your turn to talk. Please and thank you.

      I adore fudge but only make it once a year because it is one of those foods I cannot resist. I have never heard of this fudge. I might just have to make it this coming up Christmas. My favorite fudge recipe to date is the Fantasy Fudge recipe found on the bag of Marshallows or the Jar of Marshmallow Creme. Thanks.
