On the subject of firsts, this was my 'first fudge'. Oddly enough, all repeated attempts haven't come out well. Hmm. Anyways, I believe the recipe is from a Hershey magazine booklet-type thing, judging by one of the ingredients. Very yummy. I just wish I could repeat that success.
1½ cup sugar
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
1 can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup)
¼ cup butter
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) Hershey's Special Dark morsels
½ tsp. vanilla
Line an 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil. Butter foil; set aside.
Combine sugar, marshmallow creme, evaporated milk and butter in a heavy medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, to a full boil. Boil, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir just until chips are melted; pour into prepared pan.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Cut into squares or cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Store tightly covered in a cool, dry place.
