Carnation 5 minute Fudge

I really don’t think there are ever “too many” fudge recipes. In the midcentury, brand kitchens and home cooks were all trying various methods to make life easier – hence we see numerous recipes for faster ways to make traditional foods. In this case we have a 5 minute recipe for fudge, and just recently we saw a 20 minute recipe for fudge. Considering traditional fudge would need to set between 1 hour to overnight, 5 to 20 minutes was a significant time savings.

Carnation 5 Minute Fudge

Combine 2/3 cup undiluted Carnation evaporated milk with 1 2/3 cups sugar in sauce pan, heat to boiling. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add 1 1/2 cups (16) diced marshmallows, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate bits and 1 tsp vanilla. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Pour into buttered 8 or 9″ square pan. Garnish with walnuts halved. Cool. Cut in squares.
