On my last day of Homemade Christmas, I have an easy fudge recipe for you, Creamy Chocolate Fudge.
I think fudge is a Christmas staple that is right up there with Buckeyes, Chex Mix and cookies for my family. I make at least one batch if not more every year at Christmas time.
There are many recipes out there for fudge that range in difficulty and time. This Creamy Chocolate Fudge is on the easy side. It is similar to the recipe that is on the back of the marshmallow fluff jar. It’s just been tweaked a bit and the results are a perfect, creamy fudge.
This fudge can be made with or without nuts. I use pecans out of preference but my kids prefer it when I make it without nuts. Walnuts and other nuts could be used.
The recipe is also super easy to make and takes no time at all. The longest part is the time it takes to cool after making it. The ease of the recipe makes it perfect for when you need something at the last minute. It is quite possibly the last chocolate fudge recipe you will ever need!
- 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
- 1½ cups white sugar
- ⅔ cup evaporated milk
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup chopped nuts
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine marshmallow cream, sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Bring to a full boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and pour in semisweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours, or until firm.
