As soon as I typed the word -Fudge- I immediately thought of Ralphie on The Christmas Story!
I have not made Fudge for Christmas in a couple of years but for some reason I thought I had to make it for us this year. I packaged Fudge along with Sand Tarts in red tins for my friends and they all said YUM!
Your family and friends will enjoy this chocolate fix.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 - 5 oz. can evaporated milk
1 - 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
3 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chopped pecans
Lightly grease a foil-lined 10 X 13 in. pan. Set aside.
Heat sugar, butter, milk, and marshamallow creme in a heavy 3 qt. saucepan over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 5 min. Add chocolate chips and vanilla extract, stirring until chips are melted. Stir in pecans. Immediately spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate overnight. Cut into 1-inch squares. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator. For creamier fudge, let stand at room temperature for one hr. before serving.
