Handmade Gifts: Quick and Easy Fudge

Posted by Rebecca

Yes, another Martha Stewart recipe, she calls it Foolproof Holiday Fudge and it was indeed foolproof.

Here's my version.

What do I need?

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 cup double cream

  • 3 1/2 cups marshmallows

  • 3 cups nestle milk chocolate chips

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • How do I do it?

  • Line a  baking pan with two sheets of waxed or parchment paper in a crisscross manner (one lengthwise, one crosswise) so ends overhang sides of pan.

  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, cook sugar, salt, butter, cream, and marshmallows, stirring, until butter and marshmallows are almost melted, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Bring mixture to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add chips and vanilla; stir until chips are melted. Pour mixture into lined pan.

  • Let fudge cool in the pan at room temperature, 3 hours. Use edges of paper to lift out fudge; place on cutting board, and remove paper. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, or cut fudge into bars.

  • Tips and Tricks: Fudge can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week. Try sprinkling with crushed candy canes. Substitute the milk chocolate for white chocolate.

    So mine didn't end up so pretty, but it tastes delicious!
