How to Make Fantasy Fudge with Pretzels
- Line 9-inch square pan (or 7 x 9 inch pan) with non-stick foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Bring sugar, butter and evaporated milk to full rolling boil in 3-qt saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 4 - 5 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
- Now ADD semi-sweet chocolate and marshmallow crème; stir until melted. ADD nuts, pretzels, and vanilla - mix well.
- POUR into prepared pan; spread to cover bottom of pan. Add whole pecans on top (about 1-inch apart). This gives a nice presentation. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into squares.
NOTE: Be sure to use the Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate brand - it really enhances the chocolate flavor.
