Vintage Recipe: Fantasy Fudge (with Marshmallow Creme)

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen.


This recipe for Fantasy Fudge was found mixed up in a modest collection of recipes dating back to the 1940s. Whip up a batch of this tasty fudge for your sweetheart this Valentine's Day!

The age of this particular recipe card is unknown. It was handwritten in beautiful script on an index card.


Although there are very few ingredients, we did not have all of them on hand when we tried this recipe. So we made a few substitutions:
  • We don’t usually buy margarine so we uses salted butter instead.
  • Instead of evaporated milk, we used heavy cream.
  • The chocolate chips were a combination of several different half empty bags. We wound up with a combination of milk chocolate, semi-sweet and bittersweet chips.
  • Normally if a recipe doesn’t specify, I reach for walnuts to put in cookies and fudge. However, my son has become very vocal lately about his distaste for walnuts so we used pecans in this recipe instead.
  • We used a store brand Marshmallow Creme (Kroger).Turned out great!
This fudge turned out beautifully! It set nicely, cut easily and tasted wonderful! We easily gave it FOUR THUMBS UP!!!

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!
