The girl and I mixed this up, easy peasy.
It's such a good fudge. It's slightly more difficult than the sweetened condensed milk fudge, cause that's like the easiest fudge on earth. Good, too. But this one is what I think of when I think of fudge at Christmas-time. Definitely my favorite.
I didn't have marshmallow fluff and went online to find a conversion for using miniature marshmallows instead. I didn't realize this recipe was such an old recipe. I read lots of people looking for the 'original' recipe.
This is it, folks.
Let it come to room temperature before cutting.
Hot water will melt the fudge of lickety split.
Get it? Lickety split?

1 12 oz package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 7 oz jar marshmallow cream (2 cups miniature marshmallows)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add rest of ingredients, cool. Pour into buttered 9x13 pan. Cool at room temperature, cut into suares. Makes 3 pounds.
No candy thermometer, no difficulties. Just mix, time and go!
Ice this morning. Pretty, isn't it?
Maybe we won't have a white Christmas, but this morning, it sure does feel like it!
Come back tomorrow for a step-by-step on homemade toffee! It was easy peasy as well. And oh, so good.
Does everyone have their Christmas shopping and wrapping done?
