Ingredients

For the crust

  • 7 full graham crackers
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter softened to room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the chocolate layer

  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup 1½ sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 jar 7 oz Marshmallow Crème
  • ½ pkg 6 oz Milk Chocolate Chips (I use Ghirardelli)
  • ½ pkg 6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Ghirardelli)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the white chocolate fudge layer

  • 12 oz. White Chocolate wafers or chopped bars
  • 7 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk

Instructions

For the crust

  • Place graham crackers in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until the crackers are crushed. (OR, place crackers in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.)
  • Add softened butter to crumbs and process until butter and crumbs become like coarse sand.
  • Add sugar and process 5 seconds.
  • Press the mixture firmly in an 8-inch springform pan and refrigerate 20-30 minutes before filling.

For the Chocolate Layer

  • In a large saucepan, combine milk, sugar and butter. Bring to a rolling boil and cook, stirring continuously, until the temperature reaches 234 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat and add Marshmallow Crème, vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour chocolate fudge over the graham cracker crust, place in the freezer to cool and set until firm.

For the white chocolate fudge layer

  • Place white chocolate and milk in a small saucepan over LOW heat.
  • Stir until chocolate is half melted then remove from heat.
  • Set aside for a few minutes to allow the remaining chocolate to melt.
  • Stir until smooth and cool 5 minutes.
  • Pour over the chocolate layer and place in the freezer for 10 minutes. Transfer to the refrigerator until almost firm.
  • Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and keep in refrigerator at least an hour.
  • Remove from refrigerator, remove the French Silk Pie Fudge from the Springform pan and cover tightly. When ready to serve, slice into thin slices.
  • ***The fudge will keep at room temperature, in an airtight container, up to one week, in the refrigerator up to 1 month or in the freezer up to 4 months.
