This copycat of Mackinac Fudge is my all time favorite fudge recipe I have ever found. I discovered it in the late seventies, when we lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan.



Oprah had just started her talk show and had a guest, Gloria Pitzer, on the show. Gloria, a fellow Michigander, has written several cookbooks that are really great for families.

Copycat Mackinac Fudge


  • 1/4 lb. butter or margarine

  • 1/2 cup light Karo syrup

  • Dash of salt

  • 1 lb. powdered (icing) sugar

  • 6 oz. pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  1. Combine butter and Karo in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute.

  2. Stir in half of the powdered sugar being sure to smooth out the lumps.

  3. Add remaining powdered sugar, stirring until smooth, and return to the boil. Gently boil for about 2 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla and chocolate chips until melted and smooth.

  5. Pour mixture into a lightly greased or lined square pan. Cool about 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

  6. If you want it to be in true "Mackinac Style" pour the mixture into a bread loaf pan instead. Refrigerate for several hours and then slice it as you would bread.


*Your favorite nuts can be added if desired.

** For Maple Fudge use butterscotch chips instead of semi sweet chocolate chips, and maple flavoring instead of vanilla.
