Million Dollar Fudge

Passed down from Great Grandma Hooite (by passed down, I mean it was the recipe printed on the label of the evaporated milk can)

4 C sugar
1 cube butter
1 tall can evaporated milk (We’re not sure why it specifies “tall can” but I can just see her gesturing and saying “It should be about yeah big.”)

* Cook slowly! Candy should not be cooked on high. It has to boil, but can boil on a lower heat. Boil these 3 ingredients 10 minutes.

1 12-oz package chocolate chips
1 Large Hershey bar
1 Heaping cup marshmallows
2 t. vanilla
Nuts as desired

* Pour all these, except marshmallows into hot mixture and stir well until chocolate is melted. Then add marshmallows very last and pour on buttered sheet as marshmallows are just starting to melt.
* Cut into squares after the fudge has cooled and set.
* 1 recipe makes 4 ½ lbs.
