My Daddys Delicious Fudge
I have the fondest memories of holidays as a child when my daddy would make a big batch of his delicious fudge. I finally pinned him down and made him give me the recipe. Its the best youll ever eat!!
3 c. sugar
With the other half stick margarine you have after cutting a stick in half, grease a 9x13 pan and put it on the table to get it out of the way. Wrap up any remaining margarine left from the half stick and replace in refrigerator as everyone will be asking you to make more fudge before the holidays are over and you will need it to grease another pan!
Slice the 1 1/2 sticks margarine in thick pats. In a large, heavy pan ( we always used mothers pressure cooker pan) mix together sugar, evaporated milk and margarine. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until it comes to a full rolling boil. Begin timing at this point and reduce heat if needed. Allow the mixture to boil for 11 minutes. Stir constantly or it will burn. We always took turns stirring because our arms got tired!
After boiling 11 minutes, remove pan from heat and turn off eye of stove. Pour in the chocolate chips and stir until completely melted. Next spoon in the marshmallow cream. The mixture is going to be quite thick and heavy, so timing is very important at this point. Dont answer the phone or leave the room for any reason! Whip the marshmallow cream into the chocolate mixture until it is melted and well blended. Add vanilla and nuts and mix well. Pour into prepared greased pan and spread to all corners. Let children lick the spoon and pan (after it is cooled off, of course). When fudge is cooled and set, cut into 1 inch squares and put into an air-tight container.
Our friends always looked forward to receiving their yearly "fix" of
daddys fudge. It makes a great girt. But if youre hungry now, you dont
have to wait till Christmas!
