christmas fudge

my mom's recipe. it's just plain chocolate fudge, and it's REALLY really good. pretty simple, but after seeing what goes into it, you may want to limit your intake. and fyi, barometer matters to fudge, so don't make this on a cloudy day. sunny only, or it won't set. so let's get started. you'll need 1/2 pound of butter, 8 oz. marshmallow creme, a large can of evaporated milk, 4 1/2 cups sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, a large package of chocolate chips (i use semi-sweet), and an 8 oz. (HUGE) Hershey bar.

start by putting the chocolate chips, hershey bar, marshmallow creme, and vanilla in a large bowl.
then in a large saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, and milk.

boil for 8-10 minutes.

after 10 minutes, pour your mixture into your chocolate/marshmallow bowl. this is important! don't add the chocolate to the saucepan, or the fudge won't set. add the hot mixture to the chocolate.
and stir.
and stir some more.
and stir some more some more.
once it's well-combined and completely mixed together (and the chocolate is all melted), pour into a 9x13 pan.
smooth with a spatula, and....you're done! leave it for 4-6 hours to set.
pretty easy, and really good!
