This rich and creamy Fanny Farmer Fudge recipe is the best! It's rich, creamy, and decadent - all the things a fudge should be.
  • 4½ cups sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk (or homemade)
  • 18 ounces (3 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional
  1. Boil sugar and milk for 6 minutes while stirring constantly. (Start timing when it's at a rolling boil.)
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except nuts.
  4. Beat well until thoroughly combined. This will be easiest with a hand mixer or KitchenAid stand mixer. Beat for around 5-10 minutes, longer if doing it by hand. If you stop too soon the butter might separate.
  5. Fold in nuts.
  6. Spread into a 9x13 pan.
  7. After it's firmed up (bring to room temperature and cool in the fridge if your house is warm), cut into squares.
  8. Leftover fudge can be stored in the freezer.
Use chocolate chips that you enjoy the flavor of on their own since they will be the star of the show!
