This is my grandmother’s fudge recipe. We look forward to it every Christmas. My family has been making it for five decades, and will be making it for many many more decades to come.
4½ cups sugar
1 large can evaporated milk
⅓ cup coconut oil
⅓ cup butter
1 12-ounce package chocolate chips (dark chocolate works as well as milk chocolate)
2 cups marshmallow creme
1-2 cups nuts, depending on taste and preference (I use walnuts)
butter for pan
good metal pot
Mix sugar, milk, shortening, and butter in pan. Bring to a rolling boil (a rolling boil is a boil that does not stop when you stir it.) Boil for 6 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in marshmallow creme and chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Add nuts.
Pour into buttered pan.

Hi Hallee! This recipe looks yummy, but I couldn’t locate your recipe for the marshmallow creme. Where would I find this link? (You mentioned in your email that you would provide a link for it, and that’s the only reason I’m looking for it. Otherwise, I’ll probably just try to find a recipe somewhere else online.)
I have not posted it yet – it will probably be Thursday before it posts. Here is the process:
3 egg whites, 2 cups light corn syrup, 1/2 tsp salt. Mix with a mixer on high for (10 minutes with hand mixer) (5 minutes with stand mixer). Slowly beat in 2 cups powdered sugar. Add 1 TBS vanilla extract.
I’ll get a recipe posted with pics on Thursday.
Hi Hallee! I made this fudge this afternoon and it is to.die.for! Sooo yummy! I did leave out the nuts and I messed up and only had a 7 oz jar of marshmellow creme,but it still turned out wonderful. I will definitely be doing this fudge again! Thanks for sharing!
Can’t wait to try this! :)
I’ve noticed some of the “whole food” folks are very much against Evaporated Milk, which seems to be in all fudge recipes. Wonder how you’d do this without it?
This is the first I’ve heard of a problem with evaporated milk. I’ll have to put my ear to the ground about it.
You can make your own evaporated milk by cooking 2 1/4 cups milk down until it’s 1 cup. It’s as easy as that.
