Easy Kraft Christmas Fudge

This fudge is just so easy, it’s a sin. The only problem is finding Marshmallow Creme if you are living in a country where it is not readily available. We normally bring it with us when we come back from the US.

A plate of this fudge makes a great gift for a teacher or hostess.


3 cups sugar
3/4 cups butter
2/3 cups Carnation Evaporated milk, undiluted
1 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7 ounce jar Kraft Marshmallow Creme
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine sugar, butter, and milk in heavy saucepan, bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

Take off heat, stir in chocolate chips and stir until melted.

Add Marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla, and stir until well blended. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Cool at room temperature, then cut into squares. It’s a good idea to cut it sooner rather than later, as when it hardens, it is harder to cut into uniform squares.

This recipe doubles beautifully. If you are going to the trouble to make fudge, you might as well make a lot. 🙂

How easy is that??!!

  3. Alhamduillah, I probably can’t find the Marshmillow cream, because then there would be no stopping me! Must ban your blog (at least the recipe section)!

  4. Ummadam – LLLOOOLLLLLL! I lived in TABUK! You would be amazed at what I found there! Not all the time, but occasionally something like Marshmallow Creme would come in, and the rule is that you buy it when you see it and store it away for the future. Those things are loaded with preservatives; not like it’s going to expire any time soon!

    Or if you or hubby ever get to Riyadh – the Tamimi’s may have it. You just never know!

    Most of the recipes I print are do-able in this part of the world.

  6. Sorry, Cherrie, we don’t find it in Kuwait, either. If you can find miniature marshmallows, I read that 1 3/4 cup miniature marshmallows can be used for one cup marshmallow cream.
