EASY fudge!!

I'm a HUGE fan of chocolate and I am a HUGE fan of simplicity! Put those two together and this fudge recipe is perfect. I posted this recipe last year, too.... it is just so good I had to post it again. I usually start making it around Thanksgiving and make sure to have plenty to share and enjoy all the way through New Years. This is serious chocolate, one piece of this rich delight with a cup of coffee.....

Anyway, here is my favorite fudge recipe.... simple, easy and frugal!!

Amy's Amazing Fudge

Combine the following in a large bowl:
3 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet is the best!)
½ lb. (2 sticks) butter, cut into chunks

In Sauce pan measure:
4 ½ cups sugar
¼ tsp. cream of tartar
1- 12 oz. can evaporated milk

Mix together and stir constantly over med-high burner. Keep stirring until it comes to a full bubbling boil- NOT a rolling boil. Time for 6 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over chips and butter in bowl. Add 1 tsp. vanilla, stir until chocolate is melted. Add nuts if desired. [Try dried cherries too- yumm-o!]
Pour into GREASED 9x13 pan and cool.
Cut into squares and serve. Keep refrigerated or at least in a cool place.
Warning: Very rich- you must have a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. Eating more than 3 pieces at a time is known to give you sugar overload.
