MIllionaire Fudge

Posted by Donna:
As the fall season is quickly approaching, I think we all begin to think of certain recipes we use more often during those months. For instance, I tend to think more on the line of soup, chili, casseroles, and special desserts---in particular--- fudge. My mother always made this recipe for the holidays. She also made this for daddy every year on his birthday. After she passed away in 1991, I continued to make it for him on his birthday until he passed away three years ago. Many of you may already have this recipe; but, just in case you don't, please add it to your "to do" list.

4 1/2 cups sugar
1 large can carnation evaporated milk/pet milk
2 sticks margarine

Put the sugar, milk, and margarine in a large saucepan and cook until it begins to boil. Boil for 7 minutes. I don't deviate from the 7 minutes. Turn the burner off and add 15 oz. of semi-sweet real chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Then add 1 jar (16 oz.) of marshmallow creme. Stir until it is well mixed. Add 1 large pkg. of chopped pecans. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan.

This makes five pounds of fudge. It's so rich--- the serving sizes need to be cut into small squares. It stores well in the refrigerator. It's so nice to have it already made and cut into individual pieces, and then pull it out when needed during the holidays. When Mother originally wrote down the recipe, she said to put 3 small pkgs. of chocolate chips in it. Then, when I started making it, I realized the packaging had changed for the chips; so, I had to figure out exactly how many ounces her three pkgs. had in them.

Have a great weekend!
