A little piece of heaven

Here's the recipe for yummy, simple fudge I made for a cookie exchange this year. (I got it out of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook) I've NEVER attempted real fudge before and this was a piece of cake.

Happy Holidays!

Simple Fudge

1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk (NOT sweetened condensed milk)
1/2 cup butter
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with foil extending it over sides. Butter the foil. Set aside.
2. Butter the sides of a 2 quart heavy saucepan. In saucepan, combine sugar, milk and butter. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture boils (about 10 minutes). Reduce heat to medium; continue cooking, stirring constantly for 6 more minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add marshmallows, chocolate chips, vanilla and optional walnuts. Stir until evenly melted. Beat by hand for 1 minutes. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours or until firm. When firm, use foil to lift out of pan and cut into 1 inch squares. Store tightly covered in refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Oh yay! I was going to ask you for this recipe. It was so good! I've never tried to make fudge before. I'm going to find some courage and try!

looks good. Could you post some of your favorite every day meals? You know the kind that have like 4 ingredients, but still taste awesome? I've been trying out some new recipes from books and I swear - no one ever ate these (who had taste buds) before it was published!
