We just whipped up an easy batch of macadamia nut fudge for National Macadamia Nut Day, September 4th. The recipe is from Vicki Fioranelli of Cleveland, Mississippi, with thanks to Taste Of Home which shared the recipe with us.

  • 2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 3 cups chopped macadamia nuts, divided
  • 12 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon salt*

    1. LINE two 9-inch-square pans with foil; drape some of the foil over two opposite sides to use as “handles” later. Butter the foil with 2 teaspoons of butter. Set aside.

    2. COMBINE the sugar, milk, and remaining butter in a large, heavy saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

    3. REMOVE from the heat; stir in 2 cups of the nuts, the chopped chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallow creme, vanilla extract, and, if desired, the salt.

    4. POUR the fudge into the prepared pans. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the top and press in lightly. Refrigerate until firm.

    5. TO REMOVE: Using the foil, lift the fudge out of the pans. Discard the foil. Cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Store in an airtight container.
