Christmas Fudge

Comment on this recipe

This is rich but great! I used to give this to teachers at Christmas. I always place waxed paper between layers if I layer it in a gift box. Makes 2 (9" X 13") or 1 (12" X 15") Cut the pieces small. I prefer the 9" X 13" pans. Then the fudge is very thick.

Ingredients

4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter (Use real butter not margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
1 package (13 oz.) milk chocolate chips
1 square (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
4 cups (about 25) large marshmallows, cut into pieces
2 cups walnuts, chopped, optional

Instructions

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil Boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat. Allow to stand on burner. Add chocolates and marshmallows one package at a time. Stir in nuts. Pour into pans and cool. Cut into small pieces and refridgerate.
