And the lucky winner of this weekend's recipe is (dun dun dun)... MILLION DOLLAR FUDGE! Why is it called million dollar fudge you ask? Well, try this recipe and you will see why! I have been making this fudge for years (especially around the holidays when I make big batches and package it really cute and give it to family and friends) and it is always a big hit! If you make this recipe, be sure to let me know how it turns out! Enjoy! =)
Million Dollar Fudge
Prep: 5 mintutes ~ Total: 25 minutes
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 can (13 ounces each) evaporated milk
3 packages (12 ounces each) semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
3 cups chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
*The trick I use when I make my fudge is instead of using all semi-sweet chocolate, I use half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate
PLACE butter, sugar and milk in heavy 4-quart saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
REMOVE from heat. Gradually add chocolate chunks/chips, stirring until chocolate is completely melted. Add remaining ingredients, beat until well blended.
POUR into greased 15 × 10 × 1-inch pan. Cool completely. Cut into 60 pieces. Makes 5 dozen pieces.
