This is a re-post from 2010. This fudge is really good!
I have always had trouble making fudge. My kids like it and they laugh at my failed attempts. I thought I would give it one more try with this recipe and it worked! This fudge is made with Bailey's Irish Cream for St. Patrick's Day. It turned out really good and it is easy.
Irish Cream FudgeIngredients:
- 2-12oz. packages of milk chocolate chips
- 1-12oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
- 2-7oz. jars of marshmallow cream
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2/3 cups of Irish Cream (Baileys or homemade)
- 2 cups of chopped nuts (optional)
- 4 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1-12oz. can of evaporated milk
- 1/2 pound of butter, softened
In a very large bowl, combine the milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla extract, Irish Cream, and nuts (if you are adding them). Set this mixture aside.
Line a 10 X 15 baking pan with foil and spread lightly with butter or margarine.
In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat and cook slowly, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes.
Pour the milk mixture into the the chocolate chip mixture. Stir slowly by hand to combine. It is very important to do this by hand and NOT use any kind of mixer.
Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and chill until set.
