Fabulous Fudge Recipe
I have a well loved plastic recipe box sitting in my kitchen cabinet right above the coffee machine that is the keeper of all that is old and yummy. I was hankering chocolate yesterday and decided to see what I could whip up. I really didn't feel like being fussy or taking lots of time so I went to "the box". I really wish you could see how yellow the paper clipping is on that index card in the picture. I think I have been carrying that recipe with me everywhere I have lived for over 26 years.

The recipe for Fabulous Fudge came from Heloise.

Fabulous Fudge Recipe
4 1/2 sugar
1 can evaporated milk
8 ounces miniture marshmallows
18 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
2 cups pecans (broken pieces)
1 tsp vanilla

In a heavy, large saucepan, put 4 1/2 cups sugar and one large can of evaporated milk. Bring slowly to a rolling boil. Let it boil for no longer than 8 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add 8 ounces of miniture marshmallows, 18 ounces chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of butter. Stir until melted.
Add 2 cups broken pecan pieces and 1 tsp vanilla. Spread on a large ungreased pan and when cooled cut into squares.

I made this in a 13X9 pyrex dish and it took about three hours to cool and get firm. It's quick and would make a nice give-away for a plate to give to the neighbors. I usually do about 5-8 pieces and then an assortment of cookies.
