Jean is very dear friend that gave me this recipe when we worked together, she was a mentor, friend and colleague. The marshmallows make this recipe fail-proof easy. This is smooth and perfect every time.

This recipe is perfect every time! I start the time when the syrup starts to boil another recipe on this site says to do that too! I have not had it burn I stir it quite a bit while it cooks. Watch the heat. Thanks for the great recipe I now can make chocolate and the peanut butter fudge (from this site) without fail! My mother used to say some people are candy makers and some not I am so glad I can do it! Read More

In the directions I think it should say to boil all of the ingredients till the sugar melts. There was so much sugar in the recipe that even when I let it boil for 7 minutes the sugar wouldn't melt. You also have to stir it constantly or else it burns. I ended up with really granular burnt fudge. The directions need to be clearer. Read More

Yikes! Not EXACTLY "fool-proof." What went wrong? The sugar never melted and started to scorch. (I remember a recipe like this from years ago but never had trouble with it before) Seemed liked there was too much sugar in proportion to the other ingredients? Read More

This recipe was PERFECT! I just assumed with the amount of sugar in this recipe and the milk this is a recipe that had to be stirred. Mine did not burn it turned out perfect! I have made it each year since it was added to the site. No problems with it here but then I am a seasoned cook and candy maker. I also don't need to have all directions spelled out I figure it out on my own! Read More

OK In this persons defense I love making fudge and this recipe may nat say to stir constantly. You are right there however people who do make these kinds of treats know that when cooking with sugar in this amount you do hac=ve to stir it constantly. I loved this recipe and wil for sure use it again! Thank you!! Read More

I made this recipe and started to wounder when the sugar was going to evaporate. It never did. Too much sugar and it produced a grainy fudge. It wasn't a hit with me. Read More

It's good. Also nearly the same recipe as on back of nestles toll house choc chips pkg. Hint: cooking marshmallows makes them splatter and burn the arms. And your fudge gets harder faster. Not necessary. Wait until you cook sugar milk margarine 5-7 min THEN add marshmallows stirring til they're melted followed quickly by choc chips nuts vanilla. Get into buttered 9x9 as soon as chips are melted. Much easier. Read More

if you want a sugar high just dip some marshmallows and choc chips in sweetened condensed milk instead of bothering with the burn on the bottom of your pan when you are done making this fudge. Too much sugar too grainy and tasted burnt. Read More
