Yes, this is the original Fantasy Fudge recipe from the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Creme jar. We'll never know why they changed the recipe on us, but we've preserved the recipe for you right here.

Makes about 117

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12-oz. (340 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

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

Microwave method:
Microwave margarine in 4-quart microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well. Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until mixture begins to boil, stirring after 3 minutes. Mix well; scrape bowl. Continue microwaving on HIGH 5-1/2 minutes; stir after 3 minutes. Stir in chips until melted. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cool at room temperature; cut into squares. Makes 3 pounds.

Note: Can be made in a smaller pan for thicker squares (yield will be reduced).

Would make this again.
I pour this directly into a foil lined small flat rate priority box (the one sized like a VCR tape) and mail it for Christmas - it's been a big hit every time! I'm wondering if I can double the recipe? 5 stars

Works like no other and tastes better, too. I also add peanut butter. Love it. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Made per recipe on marshmallow cream and it does have a weird texture?? That's how I ended up here - seems something has changed - maybe the marshmallow?
Huge disappointment!!
5 stars

Would not make this again.
Followed microwave directions to a T, ended up with a dry crumbly mess. 1 star

Would make this again.
I made this stuff for family and some friends. Everybody went nuts (even though I excluded the nuts from the recipe). They call it \"Chocolate Fudge Face\"! 5 stars
