When I was growing up, Mom would start making all kinds of candy in Mid-December. She would make Divinity, penuche , butterscotch rolls and fudge. Dad would make fruit bread, like fruit cake, but lighter and baked in empty coffee cans.
Over the years everything but the fudge has fallen by the wayside.

This is all you need for a great batch of fudge, some times I add mint or Peanut Butter chips.
It became a tradition over the years to take a plate of fudge to work the week before Christmas.
This year will be no exception. I have made 2 batches with 1 or maybe 2 to go.

Milk Chocolate

Chocolate Mint

Million Dollar Fudge
6 C sugar
1 can evaporated milk
heat to a boil and simmer until it is soft ball stage.
take off the heat and add
1 small bottle of Marshmallow Creme
2 sticks Margarine
2 or 3 large packages of chips, any flavor combination that sounds good. (My favorites are milk chocolate, mint chocolate and peanut butter chocolate)
Mix until everything is melted and well mixed.
Add nuts, raisons, coconut if desired.
Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Makes about 7 pounds.
