A delicious holiday treat. This was made by my husband and I on a particularly sugar-craving night. Add sugar sprinkles for decoration.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

    Advertisement
  • Combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk in a 2-quart saucepan; cook, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 245 degrees F (118 degrees C), about 10 minutes. Add caramel to milk mixture; cook until temperature returns to 245 degrees F (118 degrees C), about 10 minutes.

  • Remove saucepan from heat and stir marshmallow creme and vanilla extract into caramel mixture. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish, evenly spreading into the dish. Sprinkle salt over the fudge. Lightly swirl fudge using a butter knife to slightly submerge the salt into the fudge. Cool fudge completely before cutting into squares.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have a candy thermometer, boil the sugar mixture in Step 1 for 5 minutes.

This is not a good fudge recipe. Too soft and runny doesn't cut... However it is an AMAZING fruit dip - especially with strawberries and apples! Read More

The recipe says one 5 oz can of evaporated milk but evaporated milk only comes in one size (12 oz) that I didn't check (because of the way the recipe was worded) until my fudge was too runny & wouldn't set. So I tried to fix it the next day & it would not fix. So we are eating it out of a bowl with spoons. Be careful of the milk! Read More

This recipe as written is a massive fail. I can literally eat anything and find value in it. I had made awesome fudge with Hersey s sea salt caramel baking chips and condensed milk. I was hopeful with this because the sea salt caramel chips are hard to find. Right off the consistency of the evaporative milk was too liquidy.. I continued on and did each step. After all was done I poured the mixture into a dish wth parchment paper and let it cool. After a couple hours it was still not fudge. So I put it in the fridge overnight. The next day I took I it out and tried to slice the 'fudge.' It was taffy like and incredibly sticky. More like caramel with more stick. I ate a few pieces and declared it destined for the trash. Sorry. In the future I will only use condensed milk and caramel baking chips. Sorry. Read More
