Create classic fudge - the perfect Christmas gift or treat.
Author Mary Johanson
24ozsemi-sweet chocolate chips
Prepare a cookie sheet with wax paper on the bottom.
Combine sugar, butter, and milk in sturdy pot.
Slowly bring to a rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly.
When the sugar mixture reaches 238 F, keep it at this temperature and boil 5 minutes while continuing to stir constantly. Watch the time carefully, because cook too long and the fudge will be dry. If you don't cook long enough, the fudge will be too soft. A minute can make a big difference at this stage.
Remove from heat.
Stir in chocolate chips until melted.
Add marshmallow cream and vanilla, stir until well mixed.
Pour and spread onto prepared cookie sheet.
Cool thoroughly - a few hours or overnight. This makes about 6 pounds of fudge.
