Fudge is a beloved treat throughout the South, and this rich and creamy version is a snap to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool – but as the old adage goes, “patience is a virtue.”

To make this deliciously dense fudge, heat 5 oz. evaporated milk over medium heat until warm, then add 1 ½ cups of sugar and bring to a slight boil while stirring constantly. Add 1 ½ cups of mini marshmallows and boil for another 5 minutes until smooth.

Remove the mixture from the heat, add 4 tablespoons of butter and mix until the butter is melted. Lastly, add a splash of vanilla extract and your chocolate–we used a combination of 60% bittersweet and white. But we say, let your creativity shine! You could add peanut butter, butterscotch, maple, brown sugar…the possibilities are endless!

Once your mixture is smooth, pour into a pan lined with tin foil and set your fudge aside to set. Once cooled, cut into squares and let your sweet tooth be satisfied.

Until next time,

xoxo,
