Lisa Hudson and her daughters and daughters-in-law gather each year to make fudge (a recipe given to her by her friend, Linda) and other goodies. Lisa says she remembers helping her great-grandmother, grandmother and mother make candy and treats.


  • 1-½ lbs of milk chocolate chips
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 4 cups of sugar
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups frozen miniature marshmallows (if desired)
  • 1 lb chopped walnuts (if desired)


In a Large bowl combine chocolate chips and butter (cut the butter into small pieces). Set aside. In a large stockpot or other large heavy pan, combine sugar, evaporated milk and 3 cups of miniature marshmallows. Stir constantly with a long wooden spoon and bring to a boil. Continue stirring for seven minutes.  Pour mixture over chocolate chips and butter. Continue stirring until it cools and “loses its shine.” Add vanilla, and then stir until fully mixed in. Add frozen marshmallows and walnuts. Pour into buttered 9×13 pan to cool.  Once cool, slice into small cubes and enjoy.
