Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas Fudge is inspired by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This fudge recipe has been in our family for generations and is the best homemade fudge I’ve ever tasted.
Harry Potter Inspired Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas Fudge
This is my absolute favorite fudge. This recipe has been passed down for generations. We make it every Christmas and it is a common gift for neighbors and office parties. It’s a favorite and we have to time it correctly so we don’t run out or a second batch has to be made! IT is what I imagine Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas Fudge would be; creamy, sweet, and melt in your mouth delicious.
In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone written by J.K. Rowling, we learn Harry doesn’t grow up with a great family and he doesn’t receive gifts at Christmas. During his first year at Hogwarts, due to his close friendship with Ron Weasley, he receives gifts for the first time. Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas Fudge is one of the gifts Harry receives from the Weasley family. I loved that she sent this to him as we often give this treat as a gift within our family. I love how the Weasley’s in effect adopt Harry into their family, and Mrs. Weasley is the closest thing Harry has to a mother. They are an amazing family and I couldn’t resist doing a recipe inspired by the Weasley’s Christmas.
Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas Fudge Recipe
- 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 12 fl. oz can evaporated milk
- 1/4 lb. butter
- 18 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
- 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
- Measure and prepare all ingredients before starting to cook. You won't have time to gather ingredients once the candy has cooked.
- Mix together sugar, evaporated milk and butter. Bring to a boil and time it for 8 1/2 minutes exactly. Don’t time until it starts to boil. Stir constantly.
- Turn off heat and immediately add chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and chopped nuts.
- Mix well and pour into buttered 16x10 jelly roll pan.
- Let set for 1 or 2 hours before cutting.Take out of the refrigerator at least 10 minutes before cutting to make it a little easier.
- Best if kept in the refrigerator until serving as the fudge may get soft when left out.
Recommend using wooden spoon as the mixture gets very thick and it can be difficult to combine all the ingredients together with a small or bendable spoon.
