Holiday Treats Part 2

Another family favorite, passed down from my other wonderful great grandma, Helen. Easy compared to other recipes I have seen, and just as rich and chocolatey. Full of sugar though, and in candy making, you cant really substitute the sugar because it is part of the chemistry. Like Baking, Candymaking is very scientific and can be tricky if you dont know what you are doing. So follow the recipe exactly and you will have lots of success!


3 c. semi sweet chocolate chips (you can use milk chocolate, but it makes it really sweet)
1 stick butter
8 oz marshmallow creme
4 1/2 c sugar
2 can evaporated milk (do not use sweetened condensed, it will not work)
1 c chopped nuts of your choice

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, bring evaporated milk and sugar to a boil, stirring constantly. After it boils, cook exactly 1o minutes, stirring occasionally, watching so it doesnt overboil onto the stove. Pour milk and sugar mixture over the other ingredients, stir to combine, and pour into a buttered pan, about 9x13. Chill til solid, cut and serve.

another great idea for neighbor gifts. Just an all around good holiday treat.
