Fudge was a treat I always looked forward to growing up. It seems all Southern women know how to make a good fudge. Their are so many various recipes out there for fudge and this is a dessert that you can practically do anything with. I enjoy many flavors from peanut butter to vanilla. This recipe is pretty easy just make sure you get your sugar hot enough. That was always my problem anyway.
3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter
1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips
1-1/2 cup marshmallow cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
