Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Here is another recipe I made for the Christmas plates.  Like last year, I used orange extract in the recipe instead of vanilla.  I liked it, but next year I'll go back to vanilla extract.  I've been making this fudge recipe for a few years- it's always set up for me; it's easy to put together and I love it!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

1/2 cup butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or orange extract)
2 cups white sugar
1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
10 large marshmallows
1 cup chopped walnuts

1.Butter an 8x8 inch dish.  (I line a dish with foil and grease the foil- then you can lift out the fudge all in one piece, for easier cutting).

2.Place butter, chocolate chips and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

3.In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, milk and marshmallows. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and cook 6 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

4.Pour marshmallow mixture over contents of mixing bowl. Beat entire mixture until it thickens and loses its gloss. Quickly fold in nuts and pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate several hours until firm.
