Mom’s Favorite Fudge {Four Ways}

Fudge Four Ways

Fudge and Christmas go hand in hand. It doesn’t really feel like the Christmas Season until I’ve made a batch of my Mom’s Favorite Fudge. The only problem I find with fudge is that I get a little bored of just one flavor, but I don’t dare make too many batches or I will be the size of a house before New Years. I have learned to solve this problem by turning the same batch of fudge into four different varieties.

In this batch I did plain chocolate, chocolate with walnuts, M&M, and marshmallow. You can choose your favorite toppings and be as creative as you would like to be. I have also done graham cracker pieces with the marshmallow flavor and that makes it more like a s’more. I have even taken a few tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, plopped it on a section and swirled it into the chocolate fudge with a knife. Delicious! Oh, the possibilities……..

Mom’s Favorite Fudge

2 cups sugar

2/3 cup evaporated milk

1/4 cup butter

1 cup chocolate chips (My mom prefers Herseys Mini Kisses)

1 cup mini marshmallows or marshmallow creme

1 tsp vanilla

toppings of choice

  • Butter a 8×8 pan and set aside.
  • Prepare toppings and set aside. (I like to roughly chop nuts and M&M’s)
  • Cook sugar and milk at medium boil, stirring constantly for five minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add chocolate, marshmallow, butter, and vanilla.
  • Pour quickly into a buttered 8×8 square pan.
  • Immediately press toppings into fudge before it begins to cool.
  • Cut into inch squares when cool and Enjoy!

*Fudge will stay fresh longer if stored in the refridgerator….if it lasts that long.
