This Chocolate Fudge is this easiest fudge recipe you have ever seen and tastes amazing. It is full of creamy, decadent goodness that everyone loves. 


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup butter or margarine
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (12oz.) pkg. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Line 9 inch square baking pan with foil or parchment with sides extending or the sides.
  2. Brush bottom and sides to lined pan with the melted butter
  3. Combine sugar, butter or margarine, and evaporated milk in 2 ½ quart sauce pan
  4. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring contaantly (it'll burn if you aren't stirring it, don't skip that this step). 
  5. Boil for exactly 4 minutes, as soon as it starts to boil, set your time, and  CONTINUE STIRRING CONSTANTLY while it cooks.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Add chocolate chips and marshmallow cream. Stir until combined.
  8. Add vanilla, and stir to combine.
  9. Pour into prepared the pan.
  10. Let cool and set before cutting (about 30 minutes)
  11. To cut, pull out of pan by pulling up on parchment paper or foil, and slice with a sharp knife.


* Butter will burn more easily. Use margarine if you are a newer baker or if you tend to burn things 


  • I like the taste of butter in this recipe more than the margarine. 
  • I'll often make a batch and put it into 3-4 mini baking pans (the little bread pans) to give as a gift.
