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.
Best ever recipe, my Mom made this all the time when we growing up. I found the recipe in one of her cook books , but couldn\'t read it in its entirety. Thank You 5 stars

I've made this fudge for a few decades now, and it always comes out so perfectly that there's no need to ever use another recipe. This fudge is my favorite part of the holidays and it freezes like a dream. Note to whomever created this recipe: My husband and I love you! BTW, you say 117 pieces of fudge are possible? Typo or wishful thinking? 5 stars

Best ever fudge. It has been our families favorite for many years. I took it to work and the men loved it. One kept telling me I should \"market\" it. Maybe I should. Maybe I will. 5 stars
