Grandma Strait's Fudge


"This was my Grandmother's recipe for fudge that she sold in her candy shop. It is the best fudge I have had and it is very easy to make. If pecans aren't your forte, substitute walnuts or almonds!"

  1. Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, condensed milk, butter and chocolate chips. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  3. Remove chocolate mixture from heat and add marshmallow and nuts. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan, and let set.

This fudge was great. I guess I guessed correctly that you should use POWDERED sugar, not granulated. This explains the large quantity.

This is a terrible recipe for fudge! It is not descriptive enough about the cooking techniques - very bad for beginners like me! It says to heat the mixture, but it doesn't say what heat setti...

This recipe has been far from rewarding for the effort and time involved. Despite my stirring constantly for 45 minutes, the sugar never really melted to give the fudge the smoothness it should ...

12 15 00 I tried this recipe today, and it turned out terrible, sugary. I think the sugar amount must be wrong compared to others on the web. I will probably throw it away. Totally disappointed...

I don't understand why it was not specified that it required powdered sugar.

I did not use powder sugar, my dad loved it. It reminded him of his Mom's. Thanks

I wish I had read the reviews first.

I wasted prescious time in my holiday baking, I tried cane fudge and peanut butter fudge from this website that turned out much better.

Not bad... IF you use powdered sugar. SIFTED powdered sugar. Otherwise you'll get little pellets. Good flavor. Not sure if I'll use again.
