Recipe type: Candy
Serves: 64
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 7.5-8.5 oz of chopped Hershey bar (I use milk chocolate Hershey bars)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows, heaping
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Butter or line with parchment paper an 8x8 baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the evenly chopped Hershey bars, marshmallows and butter. If adding nuts, combine them with this mixture.
  3. Set near stove with vanilla nearby. You will need these ingredients to be quickly accessible once the sugar and evaporated milk finish boiling.
  4. In a 2-quart sauce pan, combine sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to boil over medium-high heat.
  5. Stir constantly and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Set a timer and stir constantly at a rolling boil for exactly 5 minutes. Once the timer starts, turn heat down to medium.
  6. When timer goes off, quickly remove from heat and stir in the chocolate, marshmallows, butter and vanilla. Mix until everything is melted and incorporated.
  7. Quickly pour into prepared dish. Pour as much of the fudge into the dish without scraping the sides as you can. If you do scrape the sides, you risk having a grainy fudge. Afterwards, you can scrape the sides out onto a separate little plate or just leave in the pan for sampling.
  8. See step-by-step pictures to see how I add nuts to half of my fudge.
  9. Let fudge cool completely before cutting and serving. To speed up cooling, refrigerate it.
  10. If wrapped well and in an airtight container, the fudge will last up to 3 weeks in the fridge.
