DARK, CREAMY, RICH, CHOCOLATE FUDGE

By • October 9, 2010 • 8 Comments



Author Notes: Way, way back when I was in elementary school my mother was head of the candy corps for the Mother's Club bazaar that was held every November. She inherited this recipe from an old fashioned soda shop that also made its' own candy called Elliott's in Petaluma that has been closed for about 50 something years. It is a decadent gift for occasions when you want to be remembered sweetly, like Holidays and birthdays.dymnyno

Serves 2 1/2 pounds

  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 12 oz bittersweet chocolate pieces or chips (I used Guittard)
  • 6 ounces mini marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped walnuts
  1. In a large pot add the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water and butter. Stir until the mixture boils and makes a soft ball when dropped in a glass of water. (this happens rather quickly!)
  2. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla.
  3. Quickly beat the chocolate and the marshmallows into the mixture until they have dissolved completely. Then add the walnuts and mix thoroughly .
  4. Spread the mixture on a slab of marble or a baking sheet and let it cool.
  5. After the fudge is completely cooled, cut it into whatever size pieces that you want.

What could I use for bulk in place of the mini marshmallows? I'm so allergic to the corn syrup that's in them...

I think this should be called, "Deadly, Delicious, Dark, Creamy, Rich Chocolate Fudge." Love it. Looking at the picture, I can almost taste it, too. Bet it's great with fresh walnuts. ;o)
