Copycat See's Candy Fudge

You all going to think I’ve totally lost it. And I probably have, let’s be honest. Lately, out of nowhere I’ve become super excited for the holidays to arrive. Fall is my favorite time of year and my twin sister and I always say that the holidays officially arrive on October 18th (our birthday). Maybe it’s the fact that September is just a week away or that Pinterest is crawling with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas ideas…but MAN, I am spazzing out for the holidays! And today’s post is total proof of that.

When I think of Christmas food I think of fudge. It’s my favorite treat to eat during the holidays and I love sampling all different kinds. My wonderful aunt Trina always brings a plate full of various homemade fudge to our family Christmas party and I’m normally the one sampling each flavor. I can’t help myself! It’s the creamy deliciousness that I can’t get enough of. So I decided to go ahead and share a recipe for fudge today. And not just any kind of fudge…See’s Candy Fudge. Gahh!!! There’s nothing like See’s. Sometimes I’ll walk in there and pretend like I’m going to buy something just to get a chocolate sample. It’s so good!!! And this fudge recipe doesn’t disappoint. It’s mighty tasty and will be a perfect treat this Christmas. I don’t see this making it to any parties though. I’m guessing I’ll have the whole batch devoured before I can even think about plating it.

        I’ve made this fudge every year for Xmas since I was in high school. For 50 years it’s been the only fudge my family will eat. I put in cherries, pistachios, peppermint, rum flavoring, etc to vary and it still disappears. Enjoy

      Joie, this was only the second time in my life that I made fudge! It went WAY better than the first time. haha You should definitely give this recipe a try!

    Love the recipe, but you don’t say if the sugar should be granulated or Confectioners’. Is there any difference if I were to use one or the other?

        Hi Alli, Sees candy and my candy and fudge are the only candy we eat, so when I saw your recipe for Sees fudge, I decided to make it. As I was reading and measuring the ingredients, I knew there was something worng with the ingredients, but I proceeded to make it. what was wrong was four and half cups sugar, but I still didn’t catch it until I tasted the fudge and realized how grainy it was. I always make my fudge with confection sugar rather than regular sugar. I should have listened to my nagging intuition, that something was not right with the recipe, it would have eventually come to me, but I was in the mood to make fudge, and rushed in to it.

          Thank you for the comment! I’m really sorry that the fudge didn’t turn out for you. I appreciate the tip about the confectioners sugar as opposed to granulated. I’ve made this recipe a few times and it’s never been grainy. But I would really love to try it with confectioners sugar. Thanks!

    My great grandma use to make an original sees candy fudge, she had a friend that use to work for sees candy and gave her the recipe. This is the same one. The only difference is she used actual marshmallows not the cream.

    My mom got this recipe over 50 years ago. We’ve eaten it all our lives. Best recipe ever. However, her recipe called for 13 ounces of marshmallow cream.
