Today I'm sharing my favorite sweet Christmastime goodie. Chocolate Pecan Fudge.  Doesn't fudge just scream IT'S CHRISTMAS?  My Grandma Patterson used to always have fudge and peanut clusters sitting around the house during the holidays.  I asked her for the fudge recipe one time.  She giggled and said sweetie I just use the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag.  The one that uses evaporated milk.  It never fails!  

Here's what you'll need:
3 cups sugar
10 oz evaporated milk
4 tablespoons of butter
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups mini marshmallows
3 cups chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Line a 9x13 pan with foil.  Chop the pecans.  Combine the chocolate chips and marshmallows in a bowl.  Have the vanilla ready to go.

Combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and salt in a medium size thick saucepan.  Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stiring constantly.  Boil for 5 minutes again stirring constantly.

The mixture will come to a boil on medium heat!  Don't go higher than this.

It is VERY important to start the 5 minute countdown when the mixture is at a full rolling boil.  It should look like this.

After 5 minutes turn off the heat, pour in the marshmallows, chocolate chips, and then the vanilla.  Stir until combined and melted.  Add the pecans.  Stir until combined.  Pour the fudge into the prepared pan.  Let cool for 15 minutes or so then cover and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until firm.  Lift fudge from the pan and cut into 1 inch pieces as needed.  

The fudge is best eaten at room temperature. So creamy and chocolatey!
