My brother's recipe -- he adopted it from the marshmallow creme jar and always makes it for family reunions! Time to make includes cooling time of 4 hours; this does not really take long to make, just to cool.

I made this as one of three fudges for my Christmas baskets. I used 2 1/2 cups sugar, 2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips, and I boiled it for 5 minutes (I'm not sure if the extra minute makes a difference, but I have an old Fantasy Fudge recipe, that what it says, and it has always worked great). I also used a 9x12 pan, just because I was going to give this to a bunch of people, and it makes more that way. I actually refrigerate it (to cool and store), and it works great!
