Makes5 Pounds


  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • 12 ounces can of evaporated milk
  • 7 ounces jar of marshmallow fluff
  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 36 ounces chocolate chips
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts


  1. Line a 9 x 13- inch baking pan with parchment, leaving sides overhanging the pan.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and milk and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Cook at a rolling boil for 7 minutes. The mixture will bubble up, so be sure the pan is large enough to accommodate this and watch carefully, stirring often.

  3. In a large bowl, stir the marshmallow fluff, butter, and vanilla together until mixed, then stir in the chocolate chips. Pour the boiling sugar mixture into the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon or wide spatula until all white streaks disappear. Stir in walnuts.

  4. Pour fudge into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Chill 30 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

MMMM just seeing the picture for this is making my mouth water and thinking ahead to the holidays when all the deliciousness and smells are coming from the kitchen. I love chocolate and I love fudge. I could eat this all of the time. The ingredient list is not that large but it makes a whopping five pounds.

Never heard of See's fudge before but it looks real good. Do not make fudge a lot and been a long time since I made any because it never turned out last time. I like that the nuts are used in this one and this would make a nice Christmas homemade gift for someone. I will have to try this recipe. Has any one else had trouble with it setting up? Anyone have a solution for it?

This fudge was a little too soft for me, but the flavor was fantastic. I liked the addition of nuts to the recipe as well.

I really liked this fudge! I'm usually so-so on fudge because it can sometimes just taste like frosting, but this was a good recipe.

Very nice texture, and a sweet, rich flavor. I'll bet it would be even better with almonds or pistachios. I agree with kkittelson's comment - I don't normally care for fudge either, but this is yummy even for those of us who don't normally choose it!

I loved it! But I'm not a big fudge fan to begin with (way too rich), so it might be that this fudge was not very fudge-y. Fudge for people who hate fudge!

This fudge had a rich chocolate flavor, but it was a bit too soft and crumbly for my taste. I usually expect fudge to have a firmer consistency.

Loved this fudge! The nuts kept it from being too much. I liked that it was soft.

I really enjoyed the flavor of this fudge, however, it could have set for longer because it was on the verge of melting in my hand. I don't normally like nuts in my desserts, but this fudge worked well with them.

Wow definitely melted in my mouth! I'm not a huge fan of the nuts in it, but I'm sure it would work without them.

I really liked the flavor of this fudge. Next time I will probably allow it to set up for longer since it wasn't quite as firm as I would have liked it to be.

hope connielynnslater replies

could you please send me your fudge recipe connielynnslater?

I have had a See's Candy Fudge recipe for forever. My Grandma made it for my Mom when she was little (born 1935) and passed the recipe on to me. You need 2sq. Bakers unsweetened chocolate and boil only 9 min. no more. I use butter and put all in a bowl and pore the sugar, can milk mix mixture over and fold in. Hope this helps people to make it just like See's does.

Only 2 squares of Bakers unsweetened chocolate? Doesn't seem like much chocolate. Or was that a mistake?

My guess is that it's 12 squares, since the other recipe uses 12 ounces of chocolate chips. Being unsweetened chocolate, though, makes me wonder if she adds additional sugar or condensed milk.
