When I saw this recipe over at Two Normal Moms, I just knew I'd want to give it a try. It sounded so rich and creamy and perfect for the holidays ... or anytime. It's got a great flavor. It's a pretty soft fudge, so keep it refrigerated. Oh, and the recipe yields a LOT. I cut it in half before making it. I'd never made fudge before, so I was pleasantly surprised at how simple this was to make.
Yields: A LOT
- 2 pkgs milk chocolate chips, 12 oz each
- 1 pkg semisweet chocolate chips, 12 oz
- 2 jars marshmallow cream, 7 oz each
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2/3 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
- 2 cups chopped nuts, optional
- 4 ½ cups sugar
- 1 can evaporated mile, 12 oz
- ½ lb butter
1. In a very large bowl, combine chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla, irish cream, and nuts (if you're doing that option). Set aside.
2. Line a 10x15 inch pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray (if you don't have this size, use 9x13 plus a smaller loaf pan).
3. In a small saucepan, the sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook slowly, stirring constantly for 11 minutes.
4. Pour milk mixture over the chocolate chip mixture. Stir slowly by hand to blend (do not use a mixer). Pour into prepared pan(s). Chill until set
