A good fudge recipe is worth its weight in gold. If you aren't using Carnation's recipe, you might be settling for silver or (gasp!) bronze–and with a recipe that's simple, fast and slap full of chocolate deliciocity, why would you do that?
The ingredients ~
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 1/2 cups (9 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
in marshmallows, morsels, nuts and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously for
1 minute or until marshmallows are melted. Pour into prepared baking
pan; refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil.
Cut into 48 pieces.
For my recent Sister Party, I needed a simple dessert because I was making everything from scratch; Carnation's Famous Fudge has been a trusted recipe for years, and it was exactly what I was looking for. It's one of those no-brainer recipes that's near impossible to mess up, and how can you not love EVERYTHING made with Evaporated Milk?
One2One Network asked if I'd mind sharing a few Carnation recipes–both from their Holiday Guide and any recipe I use with Carnation Evaporated Milk…their timing was perfect (they sweetened the deal by providing coupons & giftcards to cover expenses–which was nice, considering I was going to make a dessert regardless). The new recipe I tried for Sunrise Sausage Bake was scrumptious, and although the fudge recipe is in their guide, I couldn't help but recommend it as a yummy favorite.
Be sure to check out these links as the holidays approach…you'll find some culinary buried treasure in their midst.
What is evaporated milk & why should I cook with it?
I use Carnation Evaporated Milk instead of regular milk when making homemade mashed potatoes. YUM!
Funny that you post a recipe today….I’m making your famous apple pie for my girl’s birthday dinner AS WE SPEAK!!!
Ahhh, now THAT blesses mah heart!! I just taught my daughter how to make my BEST APPLE PIE IN THE WORLD this weekend; all the way down to the crust :).

I am totally craving fudge now!! 😀
I love this fudge recipe also but must confess that I use the one on the Marshmallow Fluff jar at least twice a year. I just cannot make up my mind.
Looking for good recipes for foodie gift baskets for Christmas. Thinking I will try this one out!
