This creamy, semi-soft chocolate fudge gets its gooey sweetness from marshmallows.
1 cup milk
2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 large marshmallows, quartered
- Heat milk and baking chocolate together in a heavy saucepan over low heat until chocolate is melted. Add sugar, syrup and salt. Cook, stirring, until mixture begins to boil. Cover and boil for 3 minutes.
- Uncover and cook, without stirring, until chocolate reaches 232°F on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat and cool, without stirring, to lukewarm.
- Add vanilla and beat with a wooden spoon until fudge thickens and loses its gloss.
- Stir marshmallows into fudge. Spoon into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Cut into 1-inch squares when firm.
Makes 117 (1-inch) squares.
