This See’s Fudge Recipe is the easiest, most foolproof fudge recipe ever! It never gets grainy and comes out perfectly every time.
I got this See’s Fudge Recipe several years ago from one of my very best friends, Heidi (actually it is her Mom’s recipe – thanks Sue)! Even though I have had this recipe for years, I didn’t want to share it until I had permission.
Finally I broke down and begged Heidi to let me share it with all of you. She graciously agreed and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it here on Favorite Family Recipes with you! This is a true See’s Fudge recipe that was given to Sue by an actual See’s worker years ago. I don’t know if it is the exact same recipe they use today but oh man it is incredible.
A few years back I made a batch then went to See’s so I could do a side-by-side comparison. Guess what? Everyone who did the comparison (a blind comparison I might add) along with me agreed that THIS recipe tasted better! It is the easiest, most foolproof fudge recipe ever. It comes out smooth every time, never grainy. I have tried other recipes that take MUCH longer to prepare and trust me, it is so unnecessary! You really don’t need more than 15 minutes for perfect fudge! Give it a try and see for yourself. It will quickly become your favorite too. Thanks again Heidi and Sue! I know some of you out there will insist on adding nuts… all I have to say is “if you must.” I am not a big fan of nuts in my fudge but if you MUST add some, go on ahead.

See’s Fudge Recipe – Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I use Marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff?
A. In a word…no. We have had readers try it and they say it doesn’t turn out right. We haven’t tried it before (if it ain’t broke…) but I can tell you it won’t be the same. We have had some say that they have melted marshmallows down or used a recipe to actually make marshmallow fluff but again, we haven’t tried this so we can’t tell you for sure that it will work. We like to keep things simple and always stick to this original recipe.
Q. This has a lot of sugar… is there a way to cut back?
A. We don’t recommend using less sugar or using sugar substitutes for this recipe. It just won’t set up the way it is supposed to. If you are trying to cut back on sugar I suggest maybe just cutting yourself a smaller piece (if you have that kind of self control)?
Q. Is this REALLY the ACTUAL See’s Fudge Recipe?
A. As far as we know! We have had many people write us to tell us that they have the actual recipe and they could be right, but this recipe came from a See’s employee.
