See's Fudge*

This fudge has been a family tradition ever since I can remember. It is the real deal, and is a little bit more complicated to make. It is well worth the effort though. I hope you enjoy our family favorite!


4 1/4 cup sugar
1 can evaporated milk
2 pks. chocolate chips
l large hershey's bar with almonds
1-2 cups roasted almonds
1 jar marshmallow cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 lb. butter
1/2 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp. mint extract

1. In a large bowl add last 7 ingredients. ( I cut the butter into cubes, and break up the candy bar) set aside.
2. Put sugar and evaporated milk in a large pot.
3. Heat sugar and milk stiring the entire time, until it comes to a hard boil.
4. Turn heat down and continue to cook for 6 minutes. stiring the entire time.
5. Pour milk onto the chocolate mixture. Stiring until all the chocolate is melted, (you get to use your muscles on this part)
6. Put into a large buttered casserole dish.
7. Put in the fridge until cooled.

Jo's tip's: *I don't know if this is the real See's fudge. That is just the name of the recipe in the cookbook.
