Recipe: Granny Comic’s Triple Chocolate Fudge

It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.

  • The Ingredients
    • 6 cups white sugar
    • 1 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
    • 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
    • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (1 bag)
    • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
    • 1 13 ounce jar of marshmallow fluff
    • 1 tablespoon almond extract
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • The Way of Preparing
    1. Butter a 15 by 10 by 1 inch jelly roll pan.
    2. Combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk and cream cheese in a heavy stock pan.
    3. Whire wisk until mixture comes to a full boil.
    4. Boil, stirring constantly until candy thermometer reaches the soft ball stage, 234°F
    5. Remove from heat; whisk in all chocolate and fluff carefully!
    6. Beat until smooth and glossy.
    7. Stir in extracts.
    8. Pour into jelly roll pan. Refrigerate until firm, about two hours.
    9. Cut into small pieces and store refrigerated.
  • Notes
    • How to make better: no way to, honestly. I’ve had it twice in my life and it was an experience.
  • Tweaks:
    • Add candied pecans on top for a nice crunch!
    • Throw a few freshly cut pieces into graham cracker crumbs!
    • Add white chocolate chips instead of the milk chocolate, substitute out the almond extract for orange and you have a chocolate orange fudge!
    • I’ve always wanted to try making a peppermint version, but I haven’t as of yet.
  • Stretch it further: the recipe easily doubles, but I don’t ever do more than a double batch because of the sheer amount of arm work and care you have to go through to make sure nothing burns-including yourself!

Memories:

Christmas at Granny Comic’s was an excuse for food, family, bad puns, and the Dr. Demento Christmas playlist! As the holiday season bounds ever-closer, I keep wanting to break out the fancy apron my Darling Wife got me and putter around in the kitchen. It’s a little harder now that I’m trying to actively eat better. Can’t make a double batch of fudge when you’re diabetic!

I heartily encourage you to try your hand at this lovely fudge and let me know how it turns out for you!
