Mama’s Million-Dollar Fudge

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + cooling


about 5-1/2 pounds

No other fudge I've tasted comes close to the smooth, chocolate taste of this recipe, which my mother-in-law introduced me to one Christmas (I've never been able to make it as good as she does, though). Since it makes such a large batch, I always save some for last-minute gifts. —Gloria Heidner, Elk River, Minnesota
