Making Fudge

Spencer and I were making fudge, when he asked, "why are we making this?"....he is so right!  But it is so good...

Re: Making Fudge

What a funny question for a teenaged boy to ask...I hope he said that with his mouth full!

Re: Making Fudge

I need your recipe. I made some the other night, and it never did set up. It was good we just scraped it off the foil with a spoon Smiley Happy

Re: Making Fudge

i don't get fancy.  Just use the easy fudge recipe in the Betty Crocker cookbook.  Never fails and is adequate, nothing special but edible.

Re: Making Fudge

I will look for it. I still have my Betty Crocker cookbook that I received as a wedding present 36 years ago. I still think the recipes in that book are still the best, and like you said they use just the staples you have in your home, not a list of 30 things you would buy for just one recipe.

Re: Making Fudge

May I jump in here with our fudge recipe. My wife taught me this when we were first married(27 years) and it has become a tradition that I make it so this is very foolproof.

 

1 and 1/2 sticks margarine

1  5 oz can evap milk

3 cups sugar

1 bag semi sweet choc chips

1 jar marshmellow fluff

1 nice pour of vanilla

 

I bring to boil and keep boiling the first 3 items listed for 5 minutes. At the end of that time , remove from heat, pour in the chips and stir till melted, add the fluff and stir until completely mixed. Add the vanilla and stir again. Pour into a 9 by 13 and let it set for the day. This will set up nice without turning in to a hard rock. I love fudge so we only by the ingredients this time of year. Makes the tummy a little to large...MikeM

Re: Making Fudge

Okay, your posts make me ask this survey question:  Did every bride in America get the Betty Crocker red and white checked cookbook when she got married????

 

I have had mine for over 38 years...learned to cook using my mother's which would be 62 now.

Re: Making Fudge

My wife has one, and is younger than your cookbook!  I always wondered why some of the recipies towards the back said 'stoke the fire' instead of 'preheat the oven' , and called for roast of Mastadon!  Just Kidding, LOL

Re: Making Fudge

I have one that I believe I got for a wedding shower present.  I also picked one up somewhere that says copyright 1950, First edition, Fifth printing.  It doesn't have any writing in it.  I wish I had my mom's with all her notes in it.
