Another of the things I love to do is cook, so I decided that I would start to share some of my favorite recipes now and then. This is one I have had for about 30 years and it is a well loved recipe. I hadn’t made any in years and came across it again when looking through my recipes for Christmas. It makes a lot, but you will be glad it does because it disappears quicker than you would think!
12 ounces evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
4 1/2 cups sugar
12 ounces semi sweet chocolate (I used chips)
12 ounces german sweet chocolate
8 ounces marshmallow fluff
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped walnuts or other nuts (optional)
variation: add pistachios and dried cranberries or cherries
Grease a 13″ x 9″ pan with some softened butter. Chop up all the chocolate. In a very large bowl, mix together the chocolates, the marshmallow fluff and the salt. Set aside.
In a large saucepan bring the evaporated milk, butter and sugar to a boil, stir often while it heats. Once it reaches a boil, reduce to a simmer and set a timer for 6 minutes. Stir often as the mixture simmers, rub the sides now and then to mix in any sugar that sticks. Once the 6 minutes is up, remove from heat and pour over the chocolates and fluff mixture. Stir and beat with a spoon until it is evenly mixed and smooth. Fold in the walnuts.
Spread into the prepared pan and cool completely before cutting.
