Favourite Thing Friday

Never Fail Fudge.  Oh, yeah.  Seven ingredients, and you can be a fudge legend.  In our family, it was my Aunt Marie, she was the fudge legend....but our little club has added a new member.  I'm the new member, and you can start your own club. 

The fudge recipe is courtesy of the Marshmallow Fluff container.   By the way, I'm kind of in love with the vintage look of the container.  And, maybe you can't see it, but apparently fluff contains no fat or cholesterol.  It's practically a health food. 

Without further ado, here's the recipe:

 5 cups sugar
10 oz evaporated milk
1/4 lb butter
1 jar (16oz) fluff
1 tsp salt

24 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1.  Combine first five ingredients in large pot.  Stir over low heat until blended.
2.  Bring to a boil over moderate heat.  Boil slowly, stirring constantly, for five minutes (I usually do   between    7-9 minutes, just to be safe).
3.  Remove from heat, stir in chocolate chips and vanilla until chocolate is melted.  Pour into buttered 9x13" pan and cool.  Makes approximately 5 lbs. 

I would be remiss to not remind you that not all of the fudge will "fit" in your pan.  You'll have at least two pieces left in the pan....just remember (pretty please) to let the mixture cool before you sample it. 

This is my new favourite dessert, head on over to see what Shay featured as her favourite this week!


  1. I saw all that sugar - 5 cups! - and then I saw it makes 5lbs of Fudge. Thanks for the recipe. I could have some serious hip issues if I didn't whip this up as 'neighbor' gifts. ☺ Excellent Favourite! Happy Friday! ☺

  2. Send me some fluff ! Im desperate to make this and we're fluffless here. Elizabeth sent me some last year and that stuff fabulous.

    I love chocolate fudge.

    I wonder if I melted marshmallows if that would work?

  3. Thanks for the recipe. I've got a "thing" to go to tomorrow evening and am supposed to bring something sweet. Think I've just figured out what to take.

  4. I'm intreagued. Whatever is Marshmallow Fluff? You have amazing things in cans over there.
    PS. It sounds good. Lucky we don;t have Marshmallow Fluff !!!!

  5. That's not fair Kirsten, we don't have Marshmallow Fluff here, boo hoo.

  6. Sounds pretty amazing .. I think I'll try and whip some up this weekend. Nice Christmas gift for the office! Thanks.

  7. Oh yes oh yes oh yes, I now have some Marshmallow Fluff. Woo hoo. Thank you for this recipe Kirsten.
