Fluff Recipe for Fudge
- Chocolate: most such recipes use chocolate chips; however, they might not be easy to melt. You can opt for real chocolate in bar form. You can get it from the baking aisle of the grocery store. You can use 16 ounces of semi-sweet, dark, or white chocolate.
- Butter: Use only ¼ cup of salt less butter to give the fudge a smoother texture. However, you can omit it.
- Sweetened condensed milk: You need one 14-ounce of sweetened milk. Ensure you use the normal one instead of the fat-free one.
- Seven-and-a-half ounce jar of Marshmallow fluff.
- 2 ½ cups of sugar.
- ¼ cup of butter or margarine.
- ¼ teaspoon salt.
- ¾ teaspoon of vanilla.
- 12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate pieces.
- First, measure all the ingredients and prepare them beforehand. You will spend most of your time stirring, and you won't be able to stop and measure out ingredients or look in your pantry for some.
- The process of making this fluff is basically melting a bunch of things together at appropriate temperatures.
- Start melting the butter on medium-low heat. It is important to ensure it does not heat up higher than necessary.
- After the butter is melted, add the sweetened condensed milk and stir thoroughly to mix.
- Pour in the sugar and melt. When the sugar is melted, turn the heat to medium or medium-high. Let the mixture cook for 3-5 minutes and stir constantly or after every 30 seconds. When it starts boiling, use a candy thermometer or instant-read to monitor the temperature.
- Once the sugar hits 234 degrees Fahrenheit, remove it from the heat immediately. It should not get too hot. Heating sugar to various degrees has distinct effects on how it behaves. If you allow too much heat, your fudge will be dense and grainy.
- Once you have reached the temperatures and removed it from the heat, start pouring in the heated chocolate chunks a few at a time. Melt completely and keep adding the chunks.
- Add the vanilla when you are almost done with the chocolate or after all the chocolate is melted in. You shouldn't add vanilla to extremely hot temperatures as it will burn off immediately. Therefore, wait until the temperature reduces.
- Once the chocolate is fully smooth, scrape in the marshmallow fluff.
- Stir until they are fully mixed.
- When your marshmallow fluff is mixed in, you can now add the nuts if you want them and leave the mixture to cool to room temperature and set.
- Slice the now ready fluff fudge and serve.
- To store cover the slices in a plastic wrap and place on the counter.
