By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 1 2/3 cups sugar
- 2/3 cup evaporated milk
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 (6 oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
- 16 large marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Combine sugar, milk, butter, salt and chocolate chips in a saucepan and heat until chocolate is melted.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, nuts and marshmallows until melted; mix well. Pour into shallow 8-inch square pan to cool; cut into squares.
Yields approximately 16 to 24 pieces, or about 2 1/2 pounds of candy.
A Note From the Test Kitchen: If you’re having trouble with your fudge setting up, try combining the sugar, milk, butter and salt first, boiling for 5 minutes while stirring, and then add the chocolate and stir until melted. Follow the directions as written from there.
