Oh Fudge! Carnation's Classic Chocolate Fudge

Food.Wishes's picture

This video recipe for chocolate fudge is the first of two I've been commissioned to do for Carnation Evaporated Milk. I don't want to spoil the surprise for what the second video will be on (and I have no idea yet), but the choice for this first one was very easy. When I think of Carnation evaporated milk, I think of chocolate fudge.

There are hundreds of different recipes for chocolate fudge, most requiring a candy thermometer and a good bit of finesse to achieve that elusive rich, creamy-smooth texture. This recipe does not. As you'll see in the video, this is boil, turn off, stir, chill, and cut.

The holidays are a time of celebration, but with the festivities comes the occasional need to "bring a dish." What better way to impress your hosts than with a plate of chocolate fudge? Remember, it's not about how much effort you spent making something special for your friends and family, it's all about how much effort they think you spent. Enjoy!

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (4 ounces) miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional

Thanks for this very delicious Chocolate Fudge. I can hardly resist its look ! Got to go and try it right away ! But just a question...could you suggest an alternative to evaporated milk? Can I use condensed milk ?

That looks like a real good recipe for fudge. I would love to try this one chef, however, marshmallows are not an easily available ingredient here in India, would be glad if you could suggest a substitute. As for evaporated milk - how much would be the original quantity I must take to get the required quantity of evaporated milk? Awaiting the feedback as I plan to surprise my little doll with some chocolate fudge.
