    This is a little off-topic but you guys never fail to help so I thought I'd give it a try....I'm planning on giving more homemade gifts this year and I thought that fudge might be a good idea. Can any of you share your fudge recipes with me? On another thread it was suggested that you fill a cookie cutter with the fudge and then wrap in cellophane, top with a bow and you've got a great presentation. I thought that I could use cutters that had a theme that pertained to each person to make it more personalized.

    Thanks, in advance, for any help....

    There's a Cooking forum here on the DIS - under the "Just for Fun" category. It's got a thread with tons of sweets and snack recipes, including several different fudges.

    Here's a recipe for Mocha Fudge. It's really easy, smooth and deeply chocolate.

    We've always used this recipe - it might have come off the jar of Kraft marshmallow creme. It is SUPER sweet and simple to make.

    3 cups sugar
    3/4 cup margarine
    2/3 cup undiluted evaporated milk
    1 12 ounce package semi sweet chocolate chips
    1 7 ounce jar Kraft marshmallow creme
    1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heave 2 1/2 quart saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.

    Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly.

    Remove from heat, stir in chocolate chips until melted.

    Add marshmallow, nuts & vanilla; beat well until blended.

    Pour into greased 13x9 pan. Cool at room temperature; cut into squares.

    When you cut it make sure knife is really hot or else it crumbles. Wipe off and run under hot water each time you cut.

    This recipe is on a different forum I go to. It is super easy and so good,I didn't use the butter< I thought it made it sticky(tackey) and it is still really good.

    Easy Fudge

    one 8x8 pan
    WAX paper for the pan
    1/2 stick of butter
    1 can of sweetened condensed milk
    3 cups of chocolate chips (1 and 1/2 bags)

    Melt the last three in the microwave for 1:30 minutes, stir, then another minute. Make sure you stir in the middle, don't burn it.

    Pour into a wax paper lined pan. Yes, use the wax paper, you need the wax paper, if you don't use the wax paper, you are really going to regret it. Even leave a bit up the sides.

    Refrigerate for a couple of hours and then cut!

    Very easy for variation.

    Best "seller" is butterstotch, which is simply taking 2 cups of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterstotch chips.

    Mini M&Ms are another good subsitute.

    You can use flavor extracts like mint, orange.

    Cover the top with coconut.

    Subsitute 1 cup of walnuts for one cup of chips.

    normal recipe + 1/2 c chopped walnuts and 1 c mini marshmallows, turned in after the mix is well blended and ready for the pan = Rocky Road

    normal recipe - butter + 1/4 c. peanut butter = extreme peanut butter fudge.

    For the holidays, I make about 8-10 or more different types and that's what I give for gifts to just about everyone I know.


    I haven't tried this one but it sounds easy too!

    My easy fudge is this:

    1 bag of chips (any flavor)
    1 can of frosting (any flavor)

    Heat the frosting in a skillet until soft. Add the chips, stir till melted. Pour into 8X8 pan and let set. I've made chocolate/chocolate, pb/chocolate, pb/whitechocolate, white chocolate/strawberry...fun to play with!__________________

    This one sounds really good, and I have a big bottle of Bailey's just begging to be used up. I printed it out to make at Christmas time.

    For those of you who cannot find marshmallow fluff, you can still make fudge using regular marshmallows. I can't remember what the conversion amount is, but you could google it to find out.
