Aunt Merry's Fudge Recipe

by Marcia O'Neill

By the way, you have your priorities correct having Fudge Shops under Where to Eat!! I am Kathy's sister who has saved our Aunt Merry's fudge recipe that always seemed to disappear quickly anytime she made some!

2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup whole milk, 1/4 cup light corn syrup, dash of salt, 1/2 cup of Crisco, 2 squares baking chocolate cut up, 1 tsp vanilla.

Mix all together (but vanilla) in a heavy pan. Bring to a full boil. Boil just 1 minute and this must be a FULL BOIL. Should be in soft ball stage after this boil.

Take off heat and add 1 tsp vanilla. Beat with hand mixer until thickened. You can leave it as plain chocolate fudge or add 3/4 cup peanut butter or add nuts at this time.

Beat by hand if you have added peanut butter or nuts. Pour in greased pan to cool.

If it doesn't thicken this recipe makes a great fudge sauce for over ice cream. Just pour it in a glass container and store it in the refrigerator. In fact, Auntie Merry always told the story that she was making a fudge sauce for ice cream sundaes when she overcooked it and found she had made fudge rather than a sauce.
