The Perfect Fudge Recipe

Fudge! That chocolately, nutty treat we will drop everything to buy or attempt to make ourselves, but sometimes making such an amazing treat can be extremely expensive. But today I’m here to share a recipe for amazing fluffy and rich homemade fudge that costs under 20 bucks to make.

Here’s what you need:

* 3 cups of sugar
* 1 can of evaporated milk
* 3/4 cup of butter ( softened )
* 1 jar of marshmallow puff ( 7 oz )
* 1 tsp of vanilla
* 3 bags of semi sweet chocolate chips
* 1 bag of shelled walnuts

In a large pot, bring the sugar, butter and evaporated milk to a complete boil while stirring often. Once it has been boiling for about 6 minutes max, take the pot off the heat and add the marshmallow puff and chocolate chips and stir in until completely melted. Then add the vanilla and walnuts and stir in for about a minute.

Take out a 13×9 inch pan and line the inside with aluminum foil and pour your fudge mix into the pan then hit the bottom of it on the counter to get it even across the pan. Place in the freezer for 3 hours then cut and serve!
