Red cross fudge is a delicious, easy fudge that works every time and never crystallizes.




  1. Combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Cook on medium heat for 11 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Add marshmallows, chocolate chips, walnuts to fudge and mix well.
  4. Pour into a buttered pan and let cool.
  5. Cut into squares when it cuts without melting back together but before it becomes crumbly.
  6. Store in an air-tight container.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • Substituting margarine for butter makes the fudge oily. Imitation vanilla affects the aroma.
  • Other varieties of chips (vanilla, butterscotch, etc.) work as well.
