Michelle's Fudge

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 small can evaporated milk
2 Tbs butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Combine sugar, milk, butter and salt in saucepan. Bring to a full boil over medium heat, stir constantly. Boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients. Stir vigorously until marsh-mallows are melted. Pour into a foil lined 9-inch square pan, refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares.

***NOTE: This is a great fudge recipe because it's almost a no-fail type fudge recipe. I LOVE fudge...but don't ask me to pull out a thermometer and sit there and watch the temperature to get it right. This recipe isn't like that, it's easy and the marshmallow (which disappear completely) give it a less-dense-than-a-rock taste. You know what I'm talking about, right? I think this one is a little more sensitive to heat than a real fudge...but how many people set fudge in a hot kitchen anyways...
