I've made the regular fudge, the peanut butter chocolate and the peppermint fudge. All have gone over well. I have a brother-in-law that will hunt for the container that I bring to Christmas. He'll eat the entire container himself!
Thank You so much. I will try these for xmas gifts. I have made others from books which I was not happyu with and that is why I asked for one that I knew someone had tried and was good.
This has been around forever and I used to make it every year for my mother-foolproof too:
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12-oz. (340 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips*
1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts**
1 tablespoon vanilla
Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan; bring to full rolling bail, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate till melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts & vanilla beat till blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let cool and cut into 1-inch squares.
* for peanut butter fudge, substitute peanut butter chips
** for peanut butter fudge, use peanuts.
This is so easy and good! 1 lb. white chocolate, 1 lb. milk chocolate and 1 jar of peanut butter. Microwave the two chocolates for 2-4 minutes (stop and stir after each minute). Once chocolates are melted - add peanut butter stirring until completely mixed. Place in 9 x 13 glass dish and refrigerate!
That definitely sounds easy and good to. I will try it also. A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE !!! for the help. I now have these to try out and will try each of them...
I have made the microwave fudge for years! It is the only kind I can get to set. To make peanut butter fudge, I've used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate. You can also use Reeses chips to make a peanutbutter chocolate fudge.
Here's a delicious fudge recipe. It calls for Raspberry flavored chips, but they could be substituted for any other flavor. I've been making this recipe for a few years now and it always turns out great.
Christmas Berry Mocha Fudge - A Heavenly treat
1/4 lb. butter

2 oz. bittersweet chocolate
7 oz. Marshmallow cream
1 tsp. Vanilla
In a heavy saucepan melt the butter. Add evaporated milk, sugar, and coffee.
Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly until the temperature reaches 235 degrees. Remove from heat and and raspberry chocolate chips and the bittersweet chocolate. Stir the mixture until all ingredients are melted. Add the marshmallow crÃ¨me and stir until blended. Stir in the vanilla. Pour into a lightly greased 9 X 13 inch pan.
Cut in bite sized squared when cooled.
I found this on Merry-Christmas.com
There are other terrific recipes, plus crafts, music and family activities. Hope you enjoy it.
I made booberry's One Bowl Chocolate Fudge (posted above) on Saturday night to take to a party on Sunday. It took me 15 minute from start to finish. I gave Hubby a piece.... he tasted it and said "No wonder her brother-in-law hunts it down...." then he moaned with delight. In other words he liked it! It is very good, very chocolatey fudge. I'll make it again for this Christmas and use her suggestion to swirl peanut butter through it.
Glad it worked out well for you! :)
