Traditions :: Fudge

Mmmm, Fudge

We have a hysterical home-video from about 20 years ago when my mom made a batch of fudge and put it in cute teddybear bags for each of us kids. My sister, about eight years at the time, opened her bag and in the squeaky voice she had at the time says Mmmm, fudge! It’s one of those collective family memories — thanks to the video — that we all still recall these many years later. Here’s the recipe:

Microwave Fudge
In a large microwave-safe bowl mix 1/4 lb butter, 2 c. sugar, and 1 small can of evaporated milk. Cover with waxed paper and heat for 15 minutes on high, stirring once half way through.

Remove from the microwave, stir and add 1 tsp. vanilla, 12 oz. nestle morsels (the flavor of these determines the flavor of the fudge), and 7 oz. marshmallow whip. Stir to combine fully.

Pour into buttered pan (we use a 9×9) and refrigerate.

Teachers Gifts - Fudge

The fudge sets up really fast so you should be able to enjoy it a few hours after putting it in the refrigerator. It makes great gifts, like these two bags headed off to Tristan’s teachers at Mother’s Day Out.

    How cutely you packaged the fudge! That’s always my biggest predicament.

    Every year I say I’m going to make fudge. Its one of those yummy desserts that I remember only having during Christmas growing up (I remember a lot of standing over the pot and stirring). I love the idea of microwave fudge, I may actually do it this year, thank you!
