I have made this fudge for more years than I care to remember! Won several blue ribbons at the county fair when I lived in California with it. You will love this fudge for sure!

1/2 c
butter
2 c
sugar
1 & 1/2 c
marshmallows, mini
2/3 c
heavy cream
2 c
vanilla baking chips (1- 12 oz bag)
1 Tbsp
pure vanilla extract
1 c
chopped pecans or walnuts

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare 9" x 9" pan by greasing lightly with butter. I line mine with parchment paper and lightly grease it with butter.
2
In sauce pan combine butter, sugar, marshmallows and heavy cream. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring constantly till it comes to a boil. Continue to boil for 5 minutes stirring often.
3
After boiling the mixture add vanilla chips and still till they are completely melted. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Pour fudge into the 9" x 9" prepared pan. Let cool completely and cut into desired sized pieces and store in air tight container in the fridge. Take fudge out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
4
For variation in this recipe, replace vanilla with 2 tsp maple flavoring for maple fudge. You can also replace the nuts with 1/2 cup chopped and drained maraschino cherries and than you have Oprah fudge.
