Granny's Old Fashioned Fudge (Chocolate)
In honor of my grandmother (she is with the Lord now..)
I would like to share the recipe that I grew up with as a child.
Her famous chocolate fudge.
She would make this fudge every Christmas.
She would cover the deep freezer on her back porch with Tupperware containers full of it!
I will be honest, I have tasted many fudge recipes but the microwave version is a little waxy for my taste.
This is the old fashioned kind that you actually boil like a candy on the stove top.
4 1/2 cups white sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 stick butter
Mix in non-stick pot cook hard boil (bubbles up fast) for six minutes.
If you do not fully cook six minutes it will be grainy!
Take off stove and add 2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
Pour over 12oz of chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
Beat until cooled down some.
Lined a small baking dish with parchment paper and pour liquid fudge into it.
It will be hot!
It will settle to the bottom and cool.
Once cooled flip to cutting board and cut into squares.
Store it in the fridge in an airtight container. Don't worry about how long it will last in fridge. Does not matter, it will be all gone within a few days anyways!
Makes a great gift for anyone with dental work, dentures or braces. Melts in your mouth!
Makes wonderful gifts.
You can change up the flavor of your chips, and add walnuts and different kinds of stuff to make it unique.
I like it just plain like it is!
This will be your new favorite recipe!
