Christmas in July: Granny’s Chocolate Fudge

Save this recipe for the Holidays.  It is super good.

My Husband’s Granny made this every Christmas without fail.  It was a treat that our whole family looked forward to. After tasting this heavenly creation I had to get the recipe from her.  I’ve made it several times and without fail it always turns out perfect. Unfortunately Granny left us in 2009.  She left behind a great legacy; from her beautiful family, to homemade recipes, to her sweet sayings we all have a little piece of Granny that lives on in each of us every day.

I hope you enjoy this sweet treat!

Granny’s Fudge:

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 cup evaporated milk

2 Tbsp. butter

1/4 tsp. salt

2 cups miniature marshmallows

12 oz Cocoa Mill’s Bittersweet Chocolate

1 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan melt the butter, add the evaporated milk, salt , and sugar, bring this mixture to full rolling boil.  Stir continuously for 5 minutes.  Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the marshmallows, bittersweet chocolate, and vanilla. Continue stirring until the marshmallows are melted and all ingredients are well blended.

Line a 8 inch square pan with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 2 hours (or until firm).  Lift from the pan and remove the foil.  Cut into squares.  Makes 49 pieces (minus the piece you will eat while cutting it).

Tuck this recipe away and enjoy when the nights get longer, the days get colder and you are longing for a little piece of home.
