5-Minute Fudge

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Servings: 5



  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (6 oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 16 large marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Combine sugar, milk, butter, salt and chocolate chips in a saucepan and heat until chocolate is melted.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, nuts and marshmallows until melted; mix well. Pour into shallow 8-inch square pan to cool; cut into squares.

Yields approximately 16 to 24 pieces, or about 2 1/2 pounds of candy.

A Note From the Test Kitchen: If you’re having trouble with your fudge setting up, try combining the sugar, milk, butter and salt first, boiling for 5 minutes while stirring, and then add the chocolate and stir until melted. Follow the directions as written from there.
