Nancy's Creamy Fudge
My sister, Nancy, gave me this recipe and I think of her every time I make it.
low heat melt butter, add evaporated milk and sugar. Cook until sugar
is dissolved. Increase heat to medium. Bring mixture to a rolling boil
then cook for an additional 12 minutes - stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and add marshmallow cream and chocolate chips. Stir until well blended. Add nuts. Pour into 9x13 inch greased glass pan. Makes 5 pounds. More than enough for the one of the most perfect homemade gifts ever!
Here are some beautiful tins. I especially like the ones that you can put a picture on. These would really help make your homemade chocolate birthday gifts special.
