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).

I have been making this recipe for 30 years. It is the only gift that family and friends ask for and expect each year. I feel happy that I can give them a treat made with love.

This recipe is dependable and nearly foolproof. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make fudge. Pro tip: use real butter for the creamiest,most velvety texture.

I have tried many fudge recipes, this by far is the best homemade fudge recipe that I have ever tried. In my family, for our holidays this is a tried and true recipe that we make at least twice a year. The recipe is very basic and very simple to make and it comes out perfect every single time. We find that it is especially good when slightly chilled, it is good with and without nuts. We have also found you can modify the recipe by omitting the chocolate chips and adding 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter, it makes a heavenly peanut butter fudge as well. I encourage everyone to try this recipe, I have yet to find a better one, Thank you for sharing this recipe! 5 stars

Been making the original recipe for 45+ years. Perfect every time. Not grainy at all. My parents preferred pecans instead of walnuts so thatís my go to choice as well. Never any leftovers when I take this to parties. 5 stars
