My mom told me that my Grandmother would get frustrated with making fudge and that you could tell that it didn’t work out because they would have the unset fudge over ice cream that night. My mom thought it was a win nonetheless since they had dessert anyway. I definitely assumed I would have the same fate since these recipes can be a big success or a really bad mistake. Luckily that wasn’t the case and I didn’t waste a sizable amount of chocolate and nuts. When you make this, be sure you have people to share it with because it is addictive. 10/10 I will be making this again soon possibly for the gift-giving season.
Million Dollar Fudge
4 1/2 cups of sugar
12oz can of evaporated milk
1 stick of butter or margarine
8oz chopped chocolate, (your preference of milk or dark, I used 2- 70% Lindt bars)
12oz semi sweet chocolate chips
7oz marshmallow crème
4 cups roughly chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla
Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, foil, or spray with cooking spray, set aside. In a large heavy bottom, pot combine the sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Heat the mixture over medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring consistently. Once it reaches a boil turn the heat to medium and continue to boil for 8 minutes, still stirring consistently to prevent burning. Once the 8 minutes are over, remove from the heat and add in the chocolates, marshmallow crème, and vanilla till thoroughly combined. Lastly stir in the pecans, feel free to reserve some for the top or just add them all in. Quickly pour the fudge into your pan. This helps if you have one person pour and one person scrapes down the pot. Top with extra pecans if you like and let sit until fully cooled and firm. Cut to your liking and enjoy.
