Every year until I moved out, my grandma and I would start baking 2 weeks before Christmas. We bake hundreds of cookies, cakes, pies, candies, and chocolates. One of the most memorable of the confection traditions was her fudge. Sometimes she made it marbled, sometimes with peppermint pieces throughout, but without fail it was creamy and delicious everytime.
I recently learned that she adapted this recipe from one she found in a magazine long before I was born, but to me it is as much of a family recipe as any other.
-3 cups sugar
-3/4 cup butter
-2/3 cup (5 1/3 fl. oz. can) evaporated milk
-1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
