View Full Version : What kind of fudge recipe do you use?

I was thinking about trying to make some fudge this year. It's something my husband likes and I thought it might be nice to put in my gift baskets this year but I don't have any fudge recipes that I know of. I'll have to look in my Mother-in-law's recipe box. Anyone have a good tried and true recipe they'd be willing to share?

Wow, how ironic! I actually made a batch of homemade spiced pumpkin fudge the other day! The first time I made it I had no problem with it setting. However this year I made it exactly the same but it was gooier, and it took about a day and a half before it set in that oh so good fudge-y texture. I think the weather affects how fudge will set (if it's too humid, or too hot outside, etc) and it has been HOT HOT HOT and DRY DRY DRY here in Texas! Here's my recipe I used:
3 Cups of white sugar
3/4 Cups of butter
1 (5oz) can evaporated milk
1/2 Cup of packed pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice
1 (12oz) package of butterscotch morsels
1 (7oz) jar of marshmallow creme
1 Cup of chopped pecans
1 tsp of vanilla extract
In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin and spice. Bring to a boil and stir it constantly for about 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches 234 degrees. Remove from heat and stir in the butterscotch morsels. next add the marshmallow creme and stir it until it's smooth. then add in the vanilla and nuts. Mix until well blended and pour into a greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Spread it around until it's all even and let it cool for a bit then stick it in the fridge.
I had to stick mine in the freezer for a few hours because it wasn't setting and was sticky. After a day and a half it finally decided to behave and set right. I also think another trick to making good fudge is to make sure you stir it constantly and let it condense down a little bit. Hope this helps!

I just got finished making a batch of homemade chocolate fudge and this time it is setting quick! I used the recipe off the back of the Jet-Puffed brand marshmallow creme (it's the Fantasy Fudge one). This time, I cut up the sticks of butter into smaller chunks, and I used the name brand marshmallow creme instead of an off brand I used for my pumpkin fudge recipe. I'm not sure if that made the difference since the basic ingredients were the same as the pumpkin fudge. The only thing I changed in the original Fantasy Fudge recipe was instead of the baker's chocolate, I substituted 1 package of Hershey's Semi Sweet morsels. So far it's looking fantastic!!!
