I love this recipe. This is a Christmas must in my home. I've been making this since I was old enough to stir a pot. The not setting up is because of cook time. It needs to be a full boil before starting to time. It will turn a slightly darker color as it gets done. You should measure the marshmallows. I love to make peanut butter fudge. Just replace the choc chips with peanut butter chips and the nuts with 1/2 C peanut butter. It is really good layered with the regular fudge.
Good, but I've never really liked fudge with marshmallows, it doesn't taste "real".
I'm so happy to find this recipe again! I used to make it years ago and it's sooo good, not to mention super easy!
Having never made fudge before, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was! I made one batch with nuts (almonds b/c that's what I had on hand) and one without, and both turned out great! One thing I might change in the future is to use milk chocolate (or half semi-sweet, have milk chocolate) because the semi-sweet just seemed a little too rich for my liking. But the consistency of this fudge was great--creamy enough to melt in your mouth, but solid enough to stick together and cut into pieces easily.
The taste was delicious, but mine did not set correctly. I followed the recipe exactly, but omitted the nuts. I ended up with a tray of gooey chocolate. Too runny to cut, too thick to pour. (We're eating it with a spoon because it is still too yummy to waste!) My question is about the marshmallows. The bag says 10.5 oz. So I used 2 bags, thinking that was the right amount of ounces for 2.5 cups. Should I have measured the marshmallows into measuring cups instead? I probably wouldn't have even used a full bag that way.Does anyone know? Thanks!
didn't set up for me. i boiled for 10 mins. should have used a candy thermometer. taste great though!
Amazing! I poured over all the recipes and decided on this one because it was the closest to what I rembered making 2 years ago. I used mini marshmallows and measured them. I followed the recipe exactly and aside from some serious stirring, it was easy. I am going to attempt to double it next time. I also omitted nuts because my family doesn't care for them.
These turned out excellent, nothing but compliments! Thanks!
