Chocolate Walnut Fudge


I’ve definitely tried my share of fudge recipes. One of my best friends is fudge connoisseur and always insists on having fudge. For him, it’s always the same thing… plain chocolate fudge- no add ins, no extra flavoring, no toppings. How boring, right? Well, my boyfriend’s cousin graduated the other day and I decided to make some fudge to add into his celebration basket that I was giving him. Luckily for me, he’s not a picky one so I could add whatever I wanted. In my opinion, fudge isn’t fudge without some walnuts.. so that’s exactly what I made.

This is my favorite fudge recipe so far out of the 3298209384 fudge recipes that I’ve tried. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com a while ago with over a thousand reviews, so I knew I had to try it. With the many times that I’ve made this recipe, I’ve come to edit it myself and create my perfect fudge. I put the marshmallow creme in the end instead of the beginning and use all semisweet chips instead of a mixture of milk chocolate and semisweet (that’s really up to you). The 5 minutes of boiling is the most important part! You must let the ingredients boil for that long, but stir the entire time! Fudge is really easy/fast to make, it’s just a bit tedious and tiring because you have to stir so much. The end result is totally worth it, I promise!

  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS

  1. Line an 8×8 inch pan with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Bring to a full boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and pour in marshmallow creme and semisweet chocolate chips. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours, or until firm.

    Looks yummy. I’d like to encourage you to give black walnuts a try sometime. They have a distinctive flavor that goes extremely well with chocolate (much better than English walnuts).

    I had fudge the other day, for the first time in ages. I’d forgotten how much I liked it! And now I’m all inspired to make my own :)

    Well I just can’t wait to make this recipe! I made caramels a couple of years ago, the experience was not rewarding. After standing there for 45 minutes stirring and stirring w/my candy thermometer inserted just so they turned out rock hard. I, myself, prefer a soft caramel. Have you ever made any of those? It’s just we had come back from vacation and this little shop sold them for $1 a piece for this little bitty thing.

    I made this last night and the consistency of my fudge was definitely off. Maybe I should have called it really thick icing? The flavor was right on though. Any suggestions on how to get a firmer end result?
