Pa Little's Christmas Fudge
4 cups sugar
1 can (13 oz) evaporated milk
2 sticks marg. or butter (1 cup or 1/2 lb)
1 tb vanilla extract
2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 cups nuts (optional)
YMMV: I recommend against exercising this option
3 cups (18 oz) chocolate chips
How to Make
Mix sugar, evaporated milk, butter and vanilla extract
Bring the mixture to a boil
Boil for 11 minutes, stirring constantly
Seriously if it burns or doesn't boil, the fudge will suck
Remove mixture from heat
Add marshmallows, chocolate chips and optionally nuts.
Beat until dissolved
Pour into well buttered 13”x 9” pan
Allow it to coalesce for 30 minutes before eating
This recipe is originally from my Grandmother, whom we have been estranged from for many years. My father adapted it some years back and has made it each Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday) as a way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season for as long as I can remember.
I have made many variations of this over the years, usually by using different types of chips. White Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Butterscotch are my favorites.
