Original Kraft Fantasy Fudge Recipe

This is the original Fantasy Fudge recipe from the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Creme jar. It's very easy and always turns out great! I use the Microwave method. It's so quick & easy and I don't have to worry about it burning.

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7oz jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Microwave method:
-Microwave margarine in 4-quart microwave safe bowl on HIGH 1 minute or until melted.
-Add sugar and milk; mix well.
-Microwave 3 min; stir.
-Continue Microwaving 2 min; stir.
-Continue Microwaving 3 min; stir.
-Finish Microwaving a final 2 1/2 min; stir.
-Stir in chips until melted.
-Add remaining ingredients; mix well.
-Pour into greased or foil lined 13 x 9-inch baking pan. (I like to use a slightly smaller pyrex 11.75 x 7.5 x 1.75 for thicker squares. This helps to keep the fudge from drying out so soon) Cool at room temperature; cut into squares. Makes 3 pounds.

Stove top method:Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan; bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate until melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla; beat until blended. Pour into greased or foil lined 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Let cool and cut into 1 inch squares. Makes 3 pounds.

For Peanut Butter Fudge: In place of chocolate chips, use 1 small jar smooth, crunchy or extra crunchy peanut butter.

  1. Have you ever made it with real butter?

    I don't use margarine, but I assume butter would work just as well.

  2. The two batches I made in the picture is made with 1 stick of unsalted butter and 1/4 cup margarine. I was running low on margarine and butter. It turned out great.

  6. This is a great recipe. I would like to make the peanut butter version but I’m curious just how much peanut butter is in a “small jar”? I’ve seen various sizes but the jars we have are huge.
