Amazing Homemade Milk Chocolate Nut Fudge

Amazing Homemade Milk Chocolate Nut Fudge


Oh heavens, Amazing Milk Chocolate Nut Fudge is the best stuff you’ll ever sink your teeth into.  It’s so creamy, smooth, and loaded with toasted nuts, a perfect fudge for Christmas.  In fact, I’ve already heard from Santa Claus.  He’s requested no cookies, just fudge on his Christmas Eve goodie plate!

I have a talented friend who makes and sells heavenly fudge and her recipe is a well kept secret.  For years I have been searching for something even close to it.  Well here it is folks!  

Forget sticky marshmallow cream and having to use a candy thermometer (that may or may not be accurate).  Just measure the chocolate and prepare a 9 x 13″ pan, by lining it with a sheet of parchment and set them aside.  Next, cook and stir the milk and sugar, in a heavy 3 quart saucepan for 10 minutes, pour it over the chocolate, nuts, and vanilla, beat it good, so it’s glossy and pour it into the pan.  It’s super easy and amazingly delicious.

Line your pan with a parchment sheet so you can lift the fudge out of the pan easily and then cut it up!

Here’s a tip:  I like to buy big bags of nuts at my membership warehouse and then toast and chop them. It’s a huge help to have nuts all ready for baking and candy making during the holidays.  Just preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spread an even layer of nuts on a half baking sheet and roast the nuts for 6 to 10 minutes until they are golden brown and fragrant.  Remove them from the oven, let them cool and then chop them up and store in zip top bags.

The best thing about making this batch of fudge is, my adorable granddaughter, Annalise helped me make it. She stirred it and we visited and it will forever be a delicious memory for both of us!
