Scrumptious Fudge

This is the recipe that I have been using for several years....and I love it....The fudge comes out smooth, creamy, and SUPER chocolatey......Just make sure when you make it....all ingredients are at the ready and you are running to answer that phone.....LET IT  When they receive some of that delicious fudge?  They won't care that you didn't answer.

So, here it is....

The ingredients

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 cup evaporated milk

2 T butter

l package (12 oz) Nestle semi-sweet morsels

3 cups mini marshmallows

8x8 pan, lined with foil and sprayed with a cooking spray

HERE we go......FUN!!

In a saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk and butter over medium heat.....stir to combine, only stir occasionally....When it comes to a boil?  Stir constantly and vigorously for 3-4 minutes.....take off heat and add the chocolate morsels and the marshmallows until melted, again, stirring vigorously again......... (this is when you could add nuts, or ANYTHING else that you think would taste great in your fudge).  Pour immediately into the pan, spread and 'make it pretty'......give it a few then stick in the fridge for 2 hours.....

THAT, my friends is it!  You can pretty much add anything that you would like.....I think I would like to try adding those new peanut butter stuffed morsels to this fudge...RIGHT????   Or the caramel stuffed ones?  

Have fun....the MAIN part is the 3-4 minutes when you are stirring breaks up the sugar, thickens it a bit and THAT, my friends is the key to a creamy fudge.....

When you take it out of the fridge, take it out of the pan, lay it on the counter, using a good sharp knife, cut it into the sizes that you want.....this recipe makes about a plenty to share among friends, family and neighbors....again, it is rich, so a little goes a LONG

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Enjoy your time in the kitchen!
