Found this on the net at CopyKat recipes. I don't know if it's like See's, because I've never had See's. But I do know it's good!

A couple of cautions/warnings. Very important when cooking mixture on stove to use a very large saucepan as mixture more than doubles in size. Cook mixture for AT LEAST 6 minutes. That is the key to having your fudge firm up nicely. Also, use a stand mixer. Have mixer running at slow speed and pour hot mixture in a slow stream into butter, choc. chip and vanilla. That way, there is no splatter. If you double this recipe, it fits nicely in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Lining pan with foil enables you to lift fudge from pan once it has cooled. Trust me, I've made this recipe alot.
My batch of fudge firmed up really well in the fridge. I also like the fact that the chocolate is not over the heat. Seems to burn and make a mess of the pan. I attempted to cut up the marshmallows to help the melting process and it helped a little. Overall, good fudge!!!
I say Better than See's fudge! See's fudge is too sweet for me. I made this recipe exactly as described and it was wonderful, creamy and firm (but not crumbly like some). This one is in my favorites. Thanks! :)
