When she flew in to visit us recently for a big family event, she took the time to show me how she easily whips up this tasty Marshmallow Fudge….then we all drooled by the tray waiting for it to firm up so we could devour it! It was gone So. Dang. Fast! Naturally, I just had to make some more….darn it, right? 😉

  1. Butter a large cookie sheet (be sure it has an edge). Set aside.
  2. In a tall pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the milk, sugar and salt and stir well. Bring to a steady boil and, stirring frequently to avoid burning, boil about 15-20 minutes. *a tip from Grandma: when stirring, don’t scrape the stuff along the top edges….it adds to the fudge somehow* To tell if it’s ready, drop about a tbsp. full of the stuff into a tiny bowl of cold water. Roll it in your fingertips, and if it makes a nice ball it’s done. If not, continue boiling.
  3. In a mixing bowl, put your chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and vanilla. Pour the hot mixture over top and mix on high until it’s all creamy. Pour into the buttered cookie sheet and allow to cool. We like to leave it overnight (covered in foil) so it sets up entirely….if we can resist eating it that long!
