There is only ONE person that was capable of making this sweet treat perfect every year and that was my Grandpa Meredith. His fudge was famous, not just in our family but throughout his neighborhood during the holidays. Many have tried to copy, but none prevailed. Maybe because he NEVER wrote the recipe down, so there is really no way to duplicate it. So this recipe is not exact, it is still so wonderful and brings back many many memories!
Just like... GRANDPA'S FUDGE
5 cups sugar
1/2 pound butteror margarine (2 sticks)
1 large can evaporated milk
Boil for 15 minutes on medium low heat.
1 bag of small marshmallows
18 ounces of semi sweet or milk chocolate chips. (Best if you use a mixture of both!)
2 cups of walnuts (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Stir on low heat until set and all is melted about 8 minutes and no longer. Pour into a buttered 9x13 inch pan (make sure that the pan is buttered all the way to the top) or 2 square pans. Refrigerate. Cut into pieces after the fudge has turned cold.
