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!

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! :)
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.
