What You'll Need
- 4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1 (12 ounces) can evaporated milk
- 2 (12 ounces each) packages semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 (7 ounces) jar marshmallow creme
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 2 cups coarsely chopped salted peanuts
What to Do
- In medium-sized saucepan, combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a full boil, (7 to 10 minutes). Boil, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reaches 228 degrees F or a small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms 2-inch soft thread (5 to 6 minutes).
- Remove from heat; gradually stir in the chocolate chips until melted. Stir in marshmallow creme until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Stir in marshmallows and peanuts, leaving a marbled effect.
- Spread mixture into lightly buttered 9- x 13-inch baking pan. Cover and refrigerate until completely cooled. Cut into 1-inch squares.
- Store, covered, in refrigerator.
- If you like your fudge a little softer, store it at room temperature!
- It's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.
