I found this recipe on the back of a package of Guittard white baking chips nearly 25 years ago, and it's the only fudge recipe I've used since. Half of a 12-oz can of evaporated milk is used, and I always make 2 batches so the other half isn't wasted.

You don't have to use vanilla chips, just about any flavor will do but I don't recommend butterscotch - the flavor is TOO strong. At Christmas I like to use green mint chips and "Log Cabin" red cherry chips which I can only find at Target.
