DIRECTIONS

  • Place chocolate chips and butter in a pan (I use an 8 quart to have plenty of room for stirring).
  • Use the butter wrappers to grease a 9 x 13 pan.
  • Cut up 20 large marshmallows into the pan.
  • (Can use 2 C mini) Put in the freezer.
  • Place 20 large marshmallows, canned milk and sugar in 6-8 quart heavy pan.
  • Stirring, bring to a boil.
  • Continue to boil exactly 5 minutes, stirring constantly (Don't worry if there are some darker streaks, just stir better).
  • Pour mixture over chocolate chips and butter.
  • Continue stirring until mixture looses it's shine and becomes glossy.
  • This can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes.
  • Stir in vanilla and frozen marshmallows.
  • (You can also add nuts at this point).
  • Return to the buttered pan and refrigerate.
  • I've made this in small tins for gifts by lining them with plastic wrap and placing a piece of cardboard, covered with parchment, on the bottom (inside the plastic wrap).
