Fudge

As I promised...

This recipe is from the book Candy by Laura Dover Doran. Our changes are noted with the *. Note, you will want to have a bunch of friends and family to give this treat away to. This recipe renders a 'Mother Lode' of fudge...rich and very, very bad for you. Share the fat.

4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 can condensed milk*
1 c. whole milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
12 oz semisweet belgian chocolate* chopped
12 oz sweet German chocolate chopped
15 oz marshmallow creme
2 c. chopped pecans
60 pecan halves toasted

Butter a large glass baking dish and set aside. Combine the condensed milk, vanilla, marshmallow cream, chocolates and chopped pecans in a large heat-safe bowl. Set aside. Combine the sugar, butter, salt and whole milk in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 6 and a half minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the hot mixture over the ingredients in the mixing bowl and beat until all the chocolate is melted and combined with all other ingredients. Pour the fudge into the baking pan and spread with a rubber spatula. Place pecan halves on fudge in even lines. Allow the fudge to sit for two to three hours, then cut between pecans to form. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container.
