Fudge Recipe

Fudge is a family favorite during the holidays and it’s just as tasty the rest of the year.  The recipe is for chocolate,  with an easy variation for peanut butter.

Chocolate fudge
1/2 lb butter or margarine
12oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups nuts (pecans and black walnuts)
7 oz jar marshmallow cream
4-1/2 cups sugar
1 large can evaporated milk

Mix first four ingredients together in a bowl.  In a large pan or pasta pot, stir together sugar and evaporated milk, bring to a boil,  and boil stirring constantly for 9 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate mixture. Mix well and pour into a 13 by 10 inch pan.  Refrigerated until completely set, then cut into small squares. 

Peanut Butter Fudge
Substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate ones and leave out the nuts if you want.

Yummy!
