 See's Fudge Candy
The "Original" Recipe!

4 1/2 c Sugar
3 pk Chocolate chips (12 oz ea)
1/2 lb Margarine
1 ts Vanilla
1 cn Evaporated milk
7 oz Marshmallow cream
2 c Nuts

Mix 4 1/2 cups sugar with one (1) can evaporated milk. Boil 7
to 8 minutes, stirring often. (rolling boil)
Mix together in a large bowl; 3 packages chocolate chips, 7 oz.
jar marshmallow cream, 1/2 lb. melted margarine.
Cream margarine and marshmallow together and add chocolate
Pour hot mixture over chocolate mixture.
After chocolate has melted, add 2 cups of nuts and 1 tsp. of
vanilla, blend well, pour into buttered pans and chill in
refrigerator. Cut into squares before firm.



The 'original' recipe called for 10 marshmallows cut up, or 240
mini marshmallows. It's TREMENDOUS!!!!!!!
My grandmother got this recipe from one of her friends in Fargo
around the early 30's. The hot mixture will melt the chips and marshmallow

so you don't have to mix them before pouring hot mixture in.

 This recipe makes about 5 lbs of fudge. No one has attempted a
calorie count, but it's estimated that each piece contains about
47 gazillion calories. Dieters, beware!

HISTORICAL NOTE: Given to Amy DeVore by Emma Julian c. 1930,
this is "supposedly" the original recipe for See's Fudge,
produced by the See's Candy Company, Los Angeles. Emma allegedly
worked for See's and later owned her own candy store.
