~~Grandma Sally's Famous Creamy Christmas Fudge~~
These are a few of my favorite things.
3 cups sugar
1-1/2 sticks butter or margarine ( I use Parkay margarine sticks)
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk
1-1/2 packages Nestlé Semi Sweet Morsels (18 oz)
1 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
1 cup chopped diamond walnuts (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
9-inch square foil pan
In a 3-qt. saucepan on stovetop over medium heat, melt butter, add milk and sugar, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Bring to a full rolling boil, then lower heat, and continue stirring until candy thermometer reaches 235*F. My secret is I stir constantly for 10 min while it's boiling. The object is to have a smooth creamy fudge, no granules!! Remove from heat. Add morsels, and stir until fully melted, then add vanilla. Quickly add marshmallow cream, and blend until fudge has a complete milk chocolate look.
Stir in walnuts, and quickly pour in foil pan. Spread to cover whole pan evenly. Let sit at room temperature until cooled completely. I usually cover with wax paper after it cools, and let it sit overnight. Cut into small squares, and enjoy!
