Grandma Hansen’s Marshmallow Fudge

Posted: December 15, 2008 in Cool Stuff just for you

Ok, I just had to post this.  I make it every year, my Grandma Hansen’s Marshmallow fudge.

Here is what you need:

1 Jar of Marshmallow Creme
3 Cups of white sugar
1 1/2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup of evaporated Milk
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips OR
12 squares of semi sweet baking chocolate

Ok, you want to start by combing the sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a sauce pan.

It should look like this:

Make sure you open up your chocolate, marshmallow creme jar and have your vanilla ready for after you cook your sugar… DON’T put it in yet.

You want to turn on your burner to high and bring the butter, sugar and evaporated mixture to a rolling boil, reduce to medium heat and continue stirring constantly as to not scorch the sugar mixture.  You want to boil it for four minutes.

I used a wooden spoon.   I think it works best.

doesn’t that chocolate look good?  Mmm mmm.

I found a great deal on Marshmallow Creme at Walmart.  99cents

when it started boiling, I decided to use my non stick whisk. Keep stirring and don’t let up.  It is key to not burning it.

Now after four minutes, and I mean four, not three or five, but four sir!  🙂  Remove it from the heat and add your jar of marshmallow creme, your vanilla and your chocolate and begin to stir.

keep stirring and it starts to look like this:

At this point if you like nuts or raisins in your fudge you can have some chopped walnuts or raisins ready to go and fold them into the mix before pouring into the pan.

now after it looks like fudge, then you want to pour it into a non greased glass or metal pan.  9×13 works.

It should end up looking like this when you get it all in the pan… use your spoon and smooth it out.

Let it cool for a few hours, then cut it into desired squares and serve it up.  It’s the best fudge around!

The final product… mmmm mmmm.  Happy Fudge making.  Let me know what you think!
