1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 5 oz can evaporated milk
1 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups candy cane pieces or peppermint pieces, crush whole candies in plastic bag prior to measuring
Lightly grease a foil lined 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan and set aside. Heat sugar, butter, milk and marshmallow cream in heavy 3 qt saucepan over medium heat until mixture boils. Make sure to stir constantly to prevent burning.
Boil and stir for 5 minutes. Add chocolate chips and vanilla, stirring until chips are melted. Stir in candy cane pieces.
Remove from heat and immediately spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate overnight. Cut fudge into 1 inch squares.
Store in airtight container in fridge to maintain freshness. Prior to serving, let stand 20-60 minutes for a creamy treat.
Notes: The treat is perfect for holiday gatherings, and the peppermint is an awesome substitute for nuts.
Number of Servings: Makes 4 lbs.
