My Mother's Best Fudge Recipe (5 Pounds)
She always added at least a pound to two of nuts in this recipe. The nut content would be nut upon nut. Of course, if your family doesn't like nuts, you can leave them out.
This is probably our family's favorite sweet for the holiday just because it tastes so great.

11.Before beginning, take a large dish (at least 9 x 12 or larger) and butter it, getting it ready for the fudge to be poured into, when the fudge is finished. 2. In a heavy pan, add the sugar, evaporated milk, and 2 sticks of butter. Start heating this over medium heat to medium high heat. Heat to a boil and let it boil on low heat until it comes to a soft ball stage. At this point, add the vanilla and do not let it go any longer. Do not continue cooking. It is very important to take it off at this point so it doesn't overcook or get sugary. Add the chocolate chips and marshmallows and start stirring quickly into the hot mixture.
3. If you want nuts, add the nuts at this point and pour it into the greased pan.
4. This will have to set for several hours before cutting because it is a very deep fudge and makes 5 pounds. PATIENCE is worth the wait.
