Nutty, chocolatey fudge is a simple, tasty treat requiring little prep time and no baking. It's even simple enough for little ones to help out with. With so many ways to make fudge, including variations like chocolate peanut butter, creamy Kahlua, and chocolate marshmallow, it may be hard to settle on just one. However, one thing does remain certain. Simple chocolate fudge will remain a classic, tried-and-true recipe that suits many tastes. Plus, with the addition of nuts, you get a little crunch. Save this recipe or print it out, as your kids will request this repeatedly.

Classic Chocolate Fudge


  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (7 ounces) jar marshmallow creme
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Line a 9-inch square or 13×9-inch pan with foil so that foil extends over the sides of the pan; butter the foil.

2. Combine sugar, margarine, and evaporated milk in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

3. Add marshmallow creme and chocolate chips; blend until smooth. Stir in walnuts (if using) and vanilla.

4. Pour into a buttered, foil-lined pan. Cool to room temperature. Score fudge into 36-48 squares. Refrigerate until firm.

5. Remove fudge from the pan by lifting the foil; remove foil from the sides of the fudge. Using a large knife, cut through scored lines. Store in refrigerator. Makes about 3 pounds or 36-48 squares.

You can't go wrong with this classic chocolate fudge. It's creamy and nutty and one of our favorites! However, make it your own by omitting the nuts, or perhaps use white chocolate morsels if that's your favorite. And if you liked this tasty treat, try our other dessert recipes.
