Secret Recipe Club--5 Minute Fudge




Another great month as a member of the Secret Recipe Club! This month I had the pleasure of getting to know Melissa at Melissa's Cuisine. Melissa is a great cook, her blog is full of yummy foods. I had a hard time choosing between cinnamon rolls, cookie dough or several kinds of pizza. But a simple chocolate fudge recipe caught my eye. This recipe is a favorite of her husband, who makes it often. It is smooth and creamy and very easy to make. It is made with common pantry ingredients and I'm happy to say you do not need a candy thermometer. Thanks Melissa for a great recipe, I'll make it often. I also have several other recipes bookmarked.



5-Minute Fudge
2/3 cup Carnation Evaporated Milk (it's the tiny can)
1-2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows (you can also quarter regular sized marshmallows)
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Mix milk, sugar, butter, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat.
2. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Remove from heat and add vanilla, chocolate chips, and marshmallows.
4. Stir until marshmallows melt.
5. Immediately pour into a greased 8x8 pan.
6. Cool before cutting into squares.
I added some chopped walnuts

Now you've got me craving this...I'll guess I'll have to convince my husband to make me some! I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe :)

Homemade fudge is a Christmas tradition in my husband's family. Theirs takes a bit longer than five minutes though. :) Great choice for SRC.

Fast and easy and so delicious.

rjlady said...

You stated the tiny can after evaporated milk. The tiny can is usually sweetened condensed milk....is this a typo? Please let me know as I would like to try this 5 minute method.

Lisa Lynn said...

Looks delish :P
Found you on Home is Where the Heart is Hop!

Jackie said...

I've never made fudge before but you make it sound so easy. I'm going to try it today and then make it as Thanksgiving and Christmas gifts! Thanks for the post!

Jackie said...

Okay so I made this fudge today, and it tastes great, the only problem I ran into was that the fudge was too soft even though I had let it cool for some time, so I stuck it in the fridge for hopes of better results :)

Ooh the marshmallows sound like a great addition! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #12!
