Grandma Hatfield's Fudge

I didn't realize I missed posting last week's Chrsitmas Goodie. I made Fudge Friday evening for Christmas Treeing on Sunday.

Christmas must include my Grandma’s fudge. It really is the best fudge recipe we have ever tried and probably the simplest. I hate to say it but when others have given us fudge, my guys end up melting it and using it on their ice cream. They are convinced there is no other recipe for good fudge. It is one of the must haves to take Christmas Tree hunting!

Place in a large bowl:
2 cups (12 oz.) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups (15 oz.) Milk chocolate chips
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow whip

In a heavy 3 qt pan:
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large can evaporate
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Stir while heating! Bring to a boil, boil slowly for 4 1/2 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent burning.

Pour over chocolate mixture, mixing until chocolate is dissolved. Let stand until partially cooled. Add 1 cup chopped pecans if desired. Pour into 9” x 13” lightly buttered pan.

Cool in the refrigerator. Then cut into small pieces.

A fun way to help clean the bowl is to dump some plain popcorn in and use it to get those last luscious bits of fudge!
