|Salted butter||6 tbsp|
|Vanilla extract||1 tsp|
|Semi-sweet chocolate chips||1 cup, leveled|
|Evaporated milk (5 oz can)||1 (or 2/3 cup)|
|Large marshmallows (halved)||10 pieces|
Step 1: Prepare the Baking Dish
Begin by lining an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper or applying a non-stick cooking spray. This ensures that your fudge won’t stick to the dish.
Step 2: Mix Chocolate, Butter, and Vanilla
In a large mixing bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, salted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk them together until you achieve a smooth, well-mixed consistency.
Step 3: Prepare the Sugar and Marshmallow Mixture
In a 6-quart saucepan, add the sugar, evaporated milk, and halved marshmallows. Place the saucepan on the stove over medium heat.
Step 4: Bring to a Boil
Allow the mixture to boil, or until it reaches a temperature of 230 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s essential to stir continuously for about 5 minutes during this process to prevent burning.
Step 5: Combine the Mixtures
Carefully pour the hot sugar and marshmallow mixture over the chocolate-butter mixture in the mixing bowl.
Step 6: Blend Thoroughly
Using a spatula, stir the two mixtures together until they are thoroughly combined.
Step 7: Transfer to Baking Dish
Transfer the fudge mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Step 8: Allow to Set
Let the fudge sit for about 1 hour to allow it to harden.
Step 9: Slice and Serve
After the fudge has hardened, remove it from the baking pan and slice it into even pieces.
Step 10: Enjoy!
