Milnot is evaporated milk if you do not have this brand in your area Milnot® Fudge 1 cup Milnot® 3 cups granulated sugar 1/3 cup butter or margarine 1 (7 ounce) jar Marshmallow Crème 1 (12 ounce) package chocolate chips(2 cups) 1 cup chopped nuts (optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) Combine sugar, Milnot®, Marshmallow Crème and butter in a heavy 3 1/2-quart saucepan. Heat lowly to boiling, stirring frequently. When mixture boils vigorously (so that boiling cannot be slowed by stirring), start timing; continue boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips until melted. Add nuts and vanilla extract. Pour into buttered 9-inch square pan. Cool at room temperature. Yields almost 3 pounds. Variations Substitute butterscotch or peanut butter chips for chocolate chips.

    There are all kinds of recipes on the web. Allmyrecipes.com is large. Better Homes and Gardens and Good Housekeeping's recipes are always good. Look for a recipe that calls for a jar of marshmallow creme or marshmallows that you melt. This ingredient ensures that the fudge will set. Otherwise, it can be tricky. You would need a candy thermometer and even then, it may fail. The Kraft foods website should have a good recipe. I think they make marshmallows and maybe the creme, too. Manufacturers' recipes are always good. Afterall, they are selling the stuff!

    If you're looking for something really easy melt a bag of chocolate chips over low heat and microwave a container of pre-made chocolate icing until it is soupy. Mix the two together and pour in a 9x13 pan. It probably won't stand up to really good home made fudge, but is really easy, tastes good, and has the same texture.

    Melt one can of chocolate frosting and one jar of peanut butter in the microwave. Just melt it like 30 seconds and a time, stir, then do another 30 - repeat until melted. Pour it into a pan and let it set, either in the fridge or on the counter. Ta da!
