Christmas Dessert Recipe: Easy Fantasy Fudge Recipe!

fantasty-fudge

 

Jamie here, fudge was always something I loved but could not make properly for the life of me.  But to be fair, this fudge-failure gene is one I inherited from my mom (along with spider veins and droopy eyelids).  When I was a kid – she would make fudge at least once a month – chocoholics that we are – and she failed miserably every time.  It was always more chocolate goo than anything, and we had to keep it in the freezer just so it would stay a solid.

“Freezer Fudge” was the only kind of fudge I knew for a long time – until that fateful Christmas Party when I was 19.  I was working at Pottery Barn and everyone was required to bring a treat.   While I have no memory of what I brought – I DO remember the AMAZING FUDGE brought by a fellow employee.  As I stuffed my 6th piece into my mouth and seriously considered packing a couple into my pockets for the road – I asked her how she managed to get the PERFECT fudge – so creamy and dense with nary a crunchy sugar-crystal to be found. (Seriously, my mom’s was just the WORST!).  She let me in on her secret -  it’s called Fantasy Fudge.  You can find the recipe on the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Creme Jar.  The clouds parted and light shone forth – fudge skills were mine at last!!!!

In case you don’t have any marshmallow creme in your pantry right now (Um – and why wouldn’t you?) – here is the recipe:
