  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional (we like pecans)


  • Butter an 8x8-inch baking dish or spray it with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.  Combine the sugar, milk, and butter in a medium sized boiler and cook on medium-low heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Be sure to stir frequently.
  • Once it has reached the boiling point, boil for 5 minutes. Stir constantly.  Seriously. Constantly.  The mixture can scorch and you don't want that.  You can even adjust the heat down some to maintain a boil without it scorching.  
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallow creme. Stir until mixture is creamy and smooth.  Add the chopped nuts (reserving a few to sprinkle on the top) and mix well.  
  • Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  • Cool completely and cut as desired.


For even more flavor try toasting the nuts on the stovetop or in the oven before adding them to the fudge.
