Mamies Million Dollar Fudge


For as long as I remember my Mom, "Mamie" to the grandkids has been making this fudge recipe around the Christmas season.  Some she kept for us, and several batches were wrapped as gifts for friends and family.  Now my kids expect it and have learned how to make it.  It really is the best we have had.  My kids aren't fans of the nuts, so we leave them out.  Either way, tastes great!

Million Dollar Fudge

3( 4 1/2 oz) plain Hershey bars
1 (12 oz). pkg. of Chocolate Chips
1 (13 oz) jar of marshmallow creme
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 lb. of walnuts or pecans (we leave them out)

*Mix in a 6-8 quart container:  Broken up Hershey bars, chocolate chips, vanilla, marshmallow creme, and butter.
*Mix the following ingredients in a 4-6 quart saucepan:  4 1/2 cups granulated sugar, can of evaporated
milk.  Let the sugar and milk come to a boil.  After it boils, turn down heat and let slow boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
*Pour mixture of sugar and milk over remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.   After it is completely blended, add the chopped nuts.
*Drop with spoons full onto sheets of waxed paper and let stand several hours until completely cooled
*Recipe makes about 6 pounds of the best fudge ever. (roughly 50 pieces)
