You don’t need to worry about an overly complex set of directions or anything because this marshmallow fudge recipe is super simple and quick to prepare. This fudge may just make you fall in love.

Ingredients You Will Need:

(full amounts in recipe box below)

  • Granulated sugar- You need sugar for the best-tasting fudge.
  • Unsalted butter- Always use unsalted butter to control the salt in the recipe.
  • Evaporated milk- This is the milk used for the recipe.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate- Use a block of chocolate or chocolate chips.
  • Marshmallow creme- This creates a deliciously creamy base for the fudge.
  • Vanilla extract- Make sure you use real vanilla extract.
  • (optional) Walnuts- I did not use nuts in mine since I wanted to make sure that there were no allergy issues. You can certainly add the walnuts if you desire.

How to make fantasy fudge

Prepare your ingredients. Make sure the chocolate is chopped if using a large block, or have the chocolate together. Chop the nuts if you are using them. Take the marshmallow creme out of the jar and place it in a bowl.

Prepare the 9*13 baking pan. Line the pan with foil and butter the inside.

Using a large 3 quart saucepan that has a thick bottom, bring the milk, sugar, and butter together to a rolling boil over medium heat. Make sure you are stirring constantly once it starts to boil and bubble.

Once it starts to boil, start a timer for 4 minutes. If you are using a candy thermometer, you want to remove the fudge mixture when it reaches 234°F.

Once the 4 minute timer goes off or the mixture reaches the temperature, add the marshmallow creme and chocolate.

Let the chocolate and marshmallow melt and then mix together well. Add the vanilla and if you are adding walnuts, stir them in now.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and let it cool before slicing.

Let it set for 4 hours. Place it in the refrigerator to make it more firm.

Do I need a candy thermometer to make fudge?

You will want a candy thermometer when making this fudge. You want to make sure the fudge reaches 234°F to get the right texture and consistency for the fudge. While this might sound difficult, it is extremely easy to do.

If you do not have a candy thermometer, you can also just use the time method. Both are mentioned in the instructions.

What mix-ins can I add?

With fudge recipes, you have a vast variety of ingredients you could add in if you wanted. You can choose any type of add-ins that you want. You could add in chocolate chips, nuts, crisps, or even dried fruit.
