Easy Homemade Fudge with Nuts

I am always looking for fudge recipes as my son just loves this.  This one uses pecans and I just love love pecans.  It is very simple to make and so delicious.  So whether for a holiday or just a family gathering, why not try this one out.

  • 1 stick butter
  • 12 oz. package semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk
  • 12- 15 large marshmallows
  • ¾ cups chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add in 1 stick butter, or 8 tablespoons (room temperature), 12 oz. package Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips.  Set it aside.
  2.  In a large pan stir together the sugar and ⅔ cup evaporated milk, until mixed  and then add in the marshmallows
  3. Cook over medium heat,  and stir constantly.  Once the mixture has melted, continue to cook and stir a bit more until you’re sure the sugar has melted.
  4. Pour the hot mixture over the ingredients in the bowl and stir until the butter and chocolate melt then add ¾ cups chopped nut, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  5. Continue to stir vigorously until it is very well mixed.
  6. Spray an 11” x 7” baking dish with a non stick spray and pour in cooked mixture, cover and refrigerate until set and ready to cut. 

Note:  You can line the pan with plastic wrap, so you can remove the fudge easily.
