Carnation Famous Fudge


Who makes fudge in May? Apparently I do. We have been without an oven for a month and the kids (and I) wanted something sweet, chocolate and homemade. Katrina gave me the idea of making fudge because of a picture that was on a can of evaporated milk. It was really good and has left me wanting more.

Carnation Famous Fudge
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cups (5 fl. oz can) Carnation evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups marshmallows
1 1/2 cups (9oz) Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla extract.

Line a 8-in-square baking pan with foil.

Combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in marshmallows, morsels, nuts and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously for 1 minute or until marshmallows are melted. Pour into a prepared baking pan; refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces.

FOR MILK CHOCOLATE FUDGE:
Substitute 1 3/4 cups Milk Chocolate for Semi-Sweet chocolate morsels.

FOR BUTTERSCOTCH FUDGE:
Substitute 1 2/3 cups Butterscotch Flavored Morsels for Semi-Sweet morsels

FOR PEANUTTY CHOCOLATE FUDGE:
1 2/3 cups Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels for Semi-Sweet morsels and 1/2 cup chopped peanuts for pecans for pecans or walnuts.

  3. This sounds delicious! The last time I tried to make fudge, it didn't seem to set the right way. It was very ... jello-like (as in it moved when you shook the pan) even after a few hours. Not sure what I did wrong.
