  • 3 cups (600g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups (170g) butter
  • 2/3 cups (168g) evaporated milk
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) mini-marshmallows (could use 7-ounce jar of marshmallow fluff instead)
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Line a 9x13-inch pan* with parchment paper.

  2. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, mix sugar, butter, and evaporated milk.

  3. Bring mixture to a boil, leave on heat until the mixture registers 234°F on a candy thermometer (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly.

  4. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and thoroughly combined.

  5. Beat in mini-marshmallows, walnuts, and vanilla extract.

  6. Transfer fudge to the prepared pan and let it cool about 2 hours before cutting.

Recipe Notes

*For thicker fudge, pour the mixture into an 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch parchment paper-lined pan.
