The best part? It’s so easy, it’s almost shameful! This chocolate fantasy fudge takes less than 20 minutes, hands-on time. It will need a few hours to firm up, but if you’re impatient like I am, you can employ the refrigerator to speed things up.
Fantasy fudge is a classic recipe that’s been around for well over 50 years. It originally appeared on the label of Kraft Marshmallow Creme. Why do they call it fantasy fudge? Who knows? I honestly couldn’t find any information on the reason for the name. It would certainly make sense though that someone at Kraft took a bite of this fabulous fudge and felt like they were in a chocolate lover’s fantasy.
It seems that Kraft changed the recipe on the label at some point and there’s lots of complaining about the newer version on the internet. I’ve never tried the revised recipe but it seems to be a consensus that the original is the best. I’ve always made the original recipe (with a few adaptations) so I can’t tell you the difference.
