Grandma’s Best Ever Fudge!

Feb 21st, 2010 | By | Category: For Senior Women

It’s the middle of February and there is candy in abundance,  packaged in red heart boxes…makes me think of the fudge recipe that is in my ‘best ever’ file.  My sister gave me this recipe several years ago.   I’ve made it every December and sometimes in February as well and it continues to beat any fudge I’ve tasted, either homemade or purchased.  Of course, why shouldn’t it?  It is filled with chocolate and sugar!   I have an addiction to sweets that I’m trying really hard to overcome.    For my entire life, I have been amazed every time I see someone able to take a bite of candy and leave it with that one bite.  One bite only beacons the second, and that calls for at least one more,  and on and on it goes.  I’ve made a commitment to myself, coming from a family of diabetics, that I will not get diabetes.  This has required that I not buy sweets or keep sweets or desserts in the house.  It has also required that I make candy on a very limited basis.  The chocolate pretzel candy from last week and this fudge are  the  only candy type sweets in my ‘best ever’ file and I make them on a limited basis, but they are the ones I go to for homemade candy!  And they are worth sharing with you.

1 cup butter
4 cups sugar
1 cup milk
25 large marshmallows
14 oz Hersey Chocolate Bar
12 oz chocolate chips
2 oz Bakers chocolate
1 cup nuts
Melt margarine, add sugar and milk.  Heat till warm.  Add marshmallows and stir constantly to boiling point.  Remove from heat and add chocolate and nuts.  Stir until the chocolate is melted.  Pour into a greased 11×15 pan.
Cut into squares when cooled and you will enjoy immensely.
