Hurricane Fudge

Today is the perfect day to make fudge that is if you still have power.  Since most of us are stuck inside these next couple of days while Hurricane Sandy makes her way through our communities why not try out this easy fudge recipe.  Hunker down and eat fudge!

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Sugar

2/3 Cup Evaporated Milk

12 Regular Size Marshmallows

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter

1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

8 Ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips

1 Cup Chopped Nuts – Optional

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Prepare an 8×8 inch pan by greasing with butter.  Set aside.  In a large size saucepan combine the sugar, evaporated milk, marshmallows, butter and salt.  Cook over a medium heat and stir constantly until the mixture is bubbly.  Boil and stir for 6 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips.  Stir until completely melted.  Add the chopped nuts, if you are using nuts, and the vanilla.  Spread into the greased pan and place in the fridge for 5 hours.  Remove from the fridge and cut into squares.  Makes about 2 dozen pieces of fudge.
