So a humongous apology to those who have tried making the fudge recipe. It sucks as written and I am now enclosing the corrected version for the record. It's tasty, delicious, divine, and perfect. Perfect for a dinner party of 35. So enjoy the fudge. It's the perfect time of the year to make it, and guess what? I've already taken one for the team so YOUR fudge should turn out perfect!
Western Family Old Fashioned Fudge (AKA The Clawson Secret)
4 c. sugar
1 12 oz. can Western Family evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
2 1/2 c. mini marshmellows
Bring everything together in a big pot and bring to a boil. Once it boils, boil for 8 mins. Meanwhile in your mixing bowl add:
2 1/2 CUPS. chopped dipping chocolate ( or chocolate chips)
1 c. butter
Pour hot mixture into chocolate and butter and whip until everything is melted and the misture has lost some of it's gloss. Add:
1 T. real vanilla
1/2 t. salt
1 lb. whole nuts (I used pecans)
1 1/2 c. more mini marshmellows
Mix again until marshmellows melt. Pour into a buttered cookies sheet. The big silver ones. Allow to cool for a few hours. It makes a ton of pieces. 176 to be exact. But who's counting.
