  • Cooking Time: 5 minutes approximately

  • Preparation Time: 45 minutes

Backstory

My sister Debby gave me some of this fudge years ago and I HAD to have the recipe! Now I make it every Christmas season. It is so good I usually eat half the recipe myself! If you want to take the flavor over the top toast the walnuts first by placing in a glass bowl then zapping in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, zap again, stir and zap again. Too much zapping will burn them so be careful!

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c margarine (I haven't tried butter. Might be even better!)
  • 2/3 c evaporated milk (5 oz can)
  • 7 oz jar marshmallow creme
  • 8 oz almond bark or vanilla flavored candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 c walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 t vanilla

Directions

  • 1.Line a 9 inch square pan with foil so that foil extends over the sides of the pan. Butter the foil. Set aside.
  • 2.In a large sauce pan combine the sugar, margarine and milk. Over medium heat bring to a boil stirring frequently. Continue to boil and stir for approximately 5 minutes until candy thermometer registers soft ball.
  • 3. Remove from heat. Stir in almond bark until all is melted
  • 4. Stir in marshmallow creme, walnuts and vanilla. Blend until smooth
  • 5. Pour into prepared pan
  • 6. Cool to room temperature and score surface into small squares
  • 7. Refrigerate until firm. Remove fudge from pan by lifting on foil. Remove foil. Cut through scored lines. Store fudge in refrigerator.
