Fantasy Fudge

This is the recipe you will find on the back of marshmallow creme jars.

1 1/2 sticks margarine
3 c sugar
2/3 c evaporated milk
1 pkg chocolate chips
1 7 oz jar marshmallow creme
1 c walnuts (opt)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix margarine, sugar and milk in heavy 3 qt pan. Bring to full boil, stirring constantly, boil 5 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients until chocolate is melted. Pour into greased pan, 9x9 for thick fudge or 9x13 for smaller pieces. cool until room temp  makes 3 lbs
Tips if you are not using a candy thermometer be sure and boil a full 5 min. Fudge can be cut into 1/2 lb bars, wrapped in plastic wrap with a bow and given as a great hostess gift. Freezes well, I freeze in single layers with wax paper in between and pieces can be taken out as needed.
