Oh Fudge

When I was a little girl my mother made every Christmas magical.  The house was decorated so beautifully and her Christmas treats were soo yummy that I would eat until my tummy hurt, especially her fudge!  I have eaten a lot of different fudges over the years, but there I have never found a recipe as good as my mother's.

Mom's Christmas Fudge

12 oz. Package Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
13 oz. Jar of Marshmallow Fluff
1 Cup of Butter
2 Teas. Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Chopped Walnuts
5 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Butter
12 oz. Can of Evaporated Milk
One Large Dark or Milk Chocolate Candy Bar, Shredded

Place chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, vanilla, and walnuts in a mixing bowl.  Heat sugar, butter and milk in a large saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 15 minutes, stirring often until mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer and is "soft-ball" stage.  

Pour mixture into mixing bowl with the other ingredients and mix well until everything melts and is and is creamy.  Pour the mixture into a buttered 8" x 8" pan and let cool for 3 to 4 hours.  Then cut into 1" squares.

I am going to be making some different variations on my mother's recipe this week for Christmas and a test for my son's wedding next month.  They need several types of fudge on their hot cocoa bar and I am super excited to see how my sweet mother's recipe works a few new flavor variations...I'll keep you posted. 

Have a merry week getting ready for Santa's arrival.
