From the Kitchen: Momma Mert’s Fudge

July 20, 2011

You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted my mother-in-law’s famous fudge. It’s totally addicting….and rich…and not for anyone who’s on a diet! Evan’s parents came to visit last weekend and, as usual, they showered us with all sorts of tasty treats from home. This fudge makes for a delicious, inexpensive and quick dessert option anytime and it also makes for a perfect hostess gift or party favor. Enjoy!

Momma Mert’s Fudge (Parsons family recipe)

What you’ll need:

1 box powdered sugar

1/2 cup Hershey’s cocoa

1/4 cup whole milk (be exact)

1 stick margarine (I use butter)

1 teaspoon vanilla

What to do:

Place powdered sugar and cocoa in food processor. In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and milk together. Pour over powdered sugar mixture and pulse for 60 seconds. Use a spatula to scrape the walls down, add vanilla and pulse again for 30 seconds. Pour onto wax paper on a plate and put in freezer for 25 minutes. Voila! It’s fudge!

Cut into 1″x1″ squares

Note: Doubling this recipe works great when you put it in a brownie pan. Cuts nicely into 64 pieces with a long blade knife.


You can add espresso, orange peel, fresh mint or anything else you’d like to reinvent this recipe. As you can see, the ones in the picture have chopped walnuts.

P.S. Thanks for the recipe, Mert! xoxo!

    Kinda weird, but I’ve never made fudge before. Maybe I’ll try this out. Nice to not have to turn on the oven to make a treat :)

    Well, actually, until I met Evan and his family, I had never made fudge either. I didn’t even know how much I liked fudge! This recipe is easy, you should definitely try it. I’ve added fluer de sel in the past and it’s been awesome.
