Joyce's Mom's Fudge

One of my best friends is named Joyce. This past Christmas we made fudge for a special event at our church and I used her recipe. Steve and I loved this fudge, I don't think I'll ever use another one.

Joyce's Mom's Fudge

4 cups sugar
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 Tbsp. butter
Mix ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil and boil 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

12 large Hershey’s candy bars, crushed (about 12-13 oz. total)
1 (12 oz.) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans (optional)

Put chocolate bars broken up in small pieces, chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and nuts in large mixing bowl. Pour cooked mixture over this and stir fast because will set up quickly. Pour into prepared jelly roll pan (you may want to use a smaller pan if you omit the nuts) and allow to completely cool before cutting.

Makes 5 pounds of fudge.

Thanks for stopping by y'all and please come again soon!
