31 Days of Decadent Desserts {Day 24} Chocolate Fudge

Warning: This is very addictive! Think about making this when you have other to help you eat it.

Simple Chocolate Fudge

this recipe was originally found on the 


4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)

1. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan; line with 2 crisscrossed pieces of parchment paper, leaving an overhang. Butter paper.
2. In a large saucepan, combine butter, marshmallows, sugar, cream, and salt; cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Off heat, stir in vanilla, chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup walnuts until chocolate is melted.
3. Pour fudge into prepared pan, and smooth top; sprinkle with remaining walnuts. Let cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
4. Using overhang, lift fudge onto a cutting board; cut into squares (6 rows by 6 rows).

Research tells us fourteen out of any ten individuals likes chocolate.

I like the Boynton quote! =D

And I also like (love) this fudge and concur with your idea to make it only when you have others around to keep you from eating it all!

I should try this since Brian loves fudge, but I've never, ever had luck with fudge, even though I now own a candy thermometer. :-(
