Fudge anyone ??

I love fudge, but never make it. It's really not that hard, I just don't make it. Well, that's going to change this year ;-)
I'm looking for any and all fudge recipes!! Pumpkin cheesecake, amaretto, peanut butter/chocolate, mint...........the list could go on and on. I'll post as many as I can find but would love to hear any stories or good recipes. Looking forward to your "sweet selections"
Here's two to get y'all started
Pumpkin Fudge
2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. pumpkin
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
In a 2 quart saucepan, cook together sugar, pumpkin, spice, cornstarch and milk, stirring frequently, until mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer or a small amount forms a soft ball in a little cold water. Add vanilla and nuts and cool in a pan of ice water to 110 degrees. Beat until fudge loses its gloss. Pour into a lightly buttered 8x8x2" pan and cool. Score and cut when almost cold. Store in wax paper lined metal can. Will keep for several weeks.

Cherry Vanilla Fudge
3 c Sugar
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Light cream
1/2 c Milk
1/4 c Light corn syrup
2 tb Butter or margarine
2 ts Vanilla
1 c Candied cherries; quartered
Combine sugar, salt, cream, mil, corn syrup and butter in a large heavy saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to boiling. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 238F. (soft-ball stage)
Remove from heat, leaving thermometer in the saucepan. Cool to 100F.
Add vanilla. Beat briskly until fudge thickens and begins to lose its gloss. Stir in cherries.
Pour into buttered 8" square pan. Cool. Cut into squares when firm.
Makes 1 3/4 pounds

blueberry cheesecake fudge

Anyone heard of this one??
Blue Berry Cheesecake Euphoria Fudge (Original recipe. (c) 1997 T. Skaarup. May be copied without modification. All rights reserved.)

1/4 cup Butter or Margarine (1/2 stick)
2 1/2 cup Sugar
2/3 cup Evaporated Milk (or Small 5 oz can)
10-12 oz Vanilla Chips
2-3 oz Neufchatel Cheese or Cream Cheese
5 oz Marshmallow Creme (more than half but not all the jar)
1 1/2 cup Dried Blue Berries
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Butter Flavor (imitation)
Previously set aside 1-2 cups of blueberries washed in lemon juice. Make a small cut or hole in each berry and let dry on waxed paper for 1 day (until roughly the consistency of fresh raisins). The drying is important since fresh fruits (which contain lots of water) can ruin a fudge.

Line a 9" x 9" pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Let the cream cheese come to room temperature.

Heat milk at Medium setting until warm then add sugar. Bring to a rolling boil (Med-High) while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Add the marshmallow creme and butter. Bring back to a rolling boil for [5 1/2] minutes by the clock (start timing once the rolling boil resumes). Add the cream cheese to the boiling mixture about 1 minute before the end of the boil. Cut into small sections to allow easy melting.

If you get brown flakes in the mixture then turn down the heat a little.

Remove from heat and add vanilla chips and blueberries. Stir until creamy and all chips are melted. Now stir in vanilla extract and butter flavor. Mix thoroughly and pour into prepared pan. Cool. Remove from pan, remove foil, cut into squares. Stand back.

2. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk, pumpkin and
3. Cook over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring
constantly until mixture reaches 234°, about 15 – 20 minutes. (The
mixture MUST reach 234°. It is the Soft Ball stage of candy, and
needs to reach that heat for the candy to set up.)
4. Remove from heat; quickly stir in butterscotch morsels,
marshmallow crème, nuts and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
5. Quickly pour into greased pan and spread evenly.
6. Cool and cut into little squares.

Easy Fudge

I can't find my easy fudge recipe.

It was basically just melting the chocolate using a candy thermometer or bringing to a boil.

Does anyone have a recipe like that???

Here is an easy one...... You can use any type of choc. chip that you want and can add nuts or whatever too.

This fudge is so fast and easy, you and your guests (if you choose to share it) won't believe it! And if you use the fat-free sweetened condensed milk, it's almost "good for you."

3 cups Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can Fat-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk
Dash of salt
1 cups chopped nuts, optional
1 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (don't use imitation)

In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in nuts if desired and vanilla. Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8- or 9-inch square pan.

Chill 2 hours or until firm (or you can’t wait any longer) and turn fudge unto cutting board, peel off paper and cut into squares.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

1 pound bag cream drops (you know those chocolate coated white creamy candies you see for $1 a bag at lots of places)
1 cup peanut butter - I use creamy

Melt the candy in either a double boiler or in the microwave*.
When melted, mix the peanut butter in very well and pour into a square pan. I lined mine with wax paper for easy removal. Let set on counter until firm. Cut and enjoy!

*I used the microwave and set it for about 3 minutes on 50% power, stirring after the first minute and then every 30 seconds until it is melted well. Microwaves have different wattages so yours could take more or less time. Just be careful not to over heat or candy could taste burnt.

Fudge for gift-giving

I make microwave fudge all the time and receive raves about how good it is. It is the easiest recipe in the world! I'll share here as it's so easy.

2 cups chocolate (or other flavored chips) chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz.
1 teas. vanilla
1 cup nuts (preferably NOT peanuts or walnuts as so many are allergic to them)

Microwave for 2 minutes/stir in the rest of the milk/microwave till smooth/creamy. Add vanilla/nuts and pour in buttered 8"x8" pan. Chill for 2 hours. Double the batch using a 9"x13" pan. You can substitute other chips for added flavor. You can also use other flavorings.
