See's Chocolate Walnut Fudge

See’s Chocolate Walnut Fudge

The fudge is pure chocolately goodness and melt-in-your-mouth smooth. “Is Mary See real?” Absolutely! She’s not just an iconic figure found on boxes of See’s Candies; she was also the inspiration behind today’s flourishing candy business. Mary took pride in her candy recipes, insisting on using only the finest and freshest ingredients—a tradition continued by See’s Candies. Her favorite candy was her very own homemade Chocolate Walnut Fudge.

    NOTE – some additional tips –
    Use 12 oz. semi-sweet and 6 oz. milk chocolate chips
    Use butter – not margarine

Margarine? I would never ever use margarine.

When I live in California I live 2 blocks from See’s factory in S. San Francisco. The smell of chocolate nearly drove me crazy.

Always use butter! Back in the 50’s and 60’s the margarine was decent - not today - it’s not margarine.
