Goldie's Fudge

Time to revisit Fudge. I've given quite a few Fudge Recipes here on, and I thought I'd offer up yet another, because you can never have too much fudge. This recipe comes from the late Goldie's files. Goldie would be in her 90s now.  I posted Goldie's Chocolate Pie recipe a few weeks ago. This fudge recipe is simple, and I think you'll agree that the addition of marshmallow cream gives it a twist.

Here are the directions as written. As was common in that generation, the measurements are not specific. It's a bit of this and a bit of that. :-)

Goldie's Homemade Fudge
Melt three Baker's unsweetened chocolate squares with 3/4 stick of butter... or a bit more. 3 heaping cups of sugar. Add to chocolate and mix well. Add 2 cups of milk and stir...slowly. Put on medium flame. Pinch of salt. Cook until it forms a ball in cold water.. do NOT stir it. It will boil up and cool down.  Put cold water in sink. Add pot of mixture. Add (do not stir): 1 tsp vanilla, pinch of cream of tartar, 1 & 1/2 Tablespoons butter, more than a heaping tablespoon of marshmallow cream. Cool 15 minutes. Beat until thick. Pour into pie pan. Cool.
