Holiday Treats – Fantasy Fudge

December 10, 2009

Wow… this blog can be updated?  NO WAY!!  I had no idea. 🙂

Nothing like a super awesome giveaway to get me back into the blogging world.  That’s right… Brown Eyed Baker is giving away something SUPER, so I just had to pop back into the blogging world to have a chance at it… and at the last minute too!

One of my favorite holiday treats is fudge… and I like it with nuts (walnuts or pecans are great!).

My mom actually always used the recipe right off of the package… the Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme package that is.  It always HAD to be Kraft Marshmallow Creme though, that was the only kind to be used, and it’s still the only kind I’ll use.

The recipe can be found here, and I will post it below also.

Prep Time:
10 min
Total Time:
25 min
3 lb. or 40 servings, about two squares each

What You Need

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup  (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup) (Do not use sweetened condensed milk.)
1-1/2 pkg.  (12 squares) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
1 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
1 cup  chopped PLANTERS Walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla

Make It

LINE 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan; set aside. Place sugar, butter and evaporated milk in large heavy saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 4 min. or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat.

ADD chocolate and marshmallow creme; stir until completely melted. Add walnuts and vanilla; mix well.

POUR immediately into prepared pan; spread to form even layer in pan. Let stand at room temperature 4 hours or until completely cooled; cut into 1-inch squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

A serving of this sweet treat is two squares. You’ll find that a small portion goes a long way on chocolate flavor.
Variation – Classic Fantasy Fudge
Prepare recipe as directed, using 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) margarine and substituting 1 pkg. (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips for the chopped BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate and a 13×9-inch baking pan for the 9-inch square pan.
Use Your Microwave
To prepare the fudge in the microwave, place butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. or until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well. Microwave 5 min. or until mixture begins to boil, stirring after 3 min. Stir well, scraping down side of bowl. Microwave 5-1/2 min., stirring after 3 min. Let stand 2 min. Add chocolate and marshmallow creme; continue as directed.
I have a TON of other favorite holiday treats, but this is probably the first one that popped into my head, so there it is.  Yay Kraft Foods!!
Also, I’m going to try and keep up this blog posting trend again… if you internet folks out there are interested of course.
