Milk Chocolate Fudge

Comment on this recipe

This recipe is from my mother, Allegra Anselmi, who passed away this year. In 1983 she had it printed in a family cookbook and had been making it for 40 years at that time. She wrote "My children and grandchildren think it is a "must" at Christmas." Each of the 5 grown children would receive a box at Christmas.

Ingredients

4-1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 pound butter
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 (7 ounces each) Hershey's milk chocolate bars
1 jar (13 ounces) marshmallow creme
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups pecan pieces

Instructions

Boil the sugar, butter, evaporated milk and salt in 5-quart saucepan. This should be a rolling boil. Stir constantly for 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Break chocolate bars into squares and add to the rest with the marshmallow creme and vanilla. Stir until well mixed; mixture should be smooth if all chocolate is melted. Add pecan pieces last and stir until mixture begins to thicken. Pour into buttered 10x15-inch jelly roll pan. Let cool for 4 hours before cutting. Store in tins. Freezes well. Makes 5 pounds.

1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
