Grandma Poulsen's Fudge

This is my Grandma's famous fudge recipe - it's the best I've tasted! She makes it for every family gathering. I've never actually made it (Casey doesn't like fudge -surprise...) but all your yummy recipies have got me motivated to try it!

4 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
1 large Hershey bar
1 pint marshmallow cream
12 oz. chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup nuts (optional)

Break up chocolate bar and place in a bowl with the chocolate chips and marshmallow cream.

Mix sugar, butter, and milk in a heavy pan. Boil until it reaches a soft ball stage (235 degrees) - approx. 20 - 25 minutes. Pour over mixture in bowl. Add vanilla and nuts. Stir. Press into a buttered 9x13 pan. Cool before cutting.

A lot of people don't like fudge because it is so rich, which I can't figure out. Hello, that's what makes it good!

So Lisa, you're gonna send pics when you have your baby, right?! We're all waiting for the good news. Wait, you haven't had her yet, have you?!?
