Gift Giving Fudge

Introduction

This is the absolute best tasting fudge in the entire world. I do not use low fat ingredients for this one. If you want a low fat fudge try my Chocolate Cream Cheese Fudge.

Number of Servings: 72

Ingredients

    4 cups sugar
    1 large can evaporated milk (12 ounces)
    24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips(4 cups)
    1 cup real butter (2 sticks, cut up)
    2 tablespoons peanut butter
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1-1/2 to 2 cups walnuts

Directions

To begin, combine the sugar and evaporated milk in a large 4 quart pot. Bring it to a boil over medium heat. Stir it constantly while it comes to a boil. When it boils, you can stir a little less often. Boil it gently for exactly 6 minutes.
While the sugar and milk are boiling, prepare the next step. Get out a very big bowl. Pour the chocolate chips into it. Cut the butter into small squares and place it in with the chocolate chips. Put the peanut butter and the vanilla into the pan too. Have the walnuts measured, and near by for when you need them. Also butter a big cookie sheet, or a couple of glass baking pans.

When the sugar and milk mixture is done boiling (for 6 minutes exactly) pour it into the bowl with the butter and chocolate chips. Using electric beaters, beat the mixture until the butter and chocolate chips are melted. Add the nuts and continue stirring until they are well distributed. The fudge should still be soft and glossy. Turn it into the prepared pan(s). I shake the pans vigorously to get the fudge into all of the corners or you could smooth it in with a spoon. Let the fudge set up for about an hour, and cut it into small squares. When the fudge is good and hard, it can be placed in small containers and frozen, or given away to thankful recipients. Makes 72 pieces.

  • The fudge didn't set up right. No one wanted to eat it because it was too mushy! - 12/27/09

  • I love this fudge!!! I have been making Fannie Mae Fudge for years but the last couple of years I have had problems with it getting grainy - I think because of low quality butter. But this came out perfect. I used 2 C milk & @ C dark chocolate and then added 1 C semi sweet. YUM! worth the calories! - 12/24/09
