Yummy Chocolate Treats

Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Peanut Butter...Image via Wikipedia
Right now in South Carolina the temperatures are cold, rainy and freezing. School is closed for the day and this is a great treat for everyone to make....
    1 1/2 cups sugar                                               
    3/4 cup half and half or evaporated milk                       
    2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips                          
    1 1/2 cups marshmallows                                        
    1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine                          
    3/4 cup walnuts coarsely chopped or pecans if you wish         
    36 walnuts small or pecan halves if you wish                   

Place sugar and half-and-half in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Stirring constantly, boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in chocolate chips, marshmallows, and butter until marshmallows are melted and no white streaks remain. Stir in chopped nuts, if using. Immediately spread mixture in an 8-inch square baking pan. If desired, place nut halves on top of fudge and gently press down on each.

Let stand at room temperature 2 to 3 hours or until firm. Or, if desired, refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour, then remove from the refrigerator.

If you love peanut butter fudge make these amendments: Prepare as above except use 2 1/4 cups peanut butter chips in place of the chocolate chips. Use 1/2 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts in place of chopped walnuts or pecans and sprinkle top with additional chopped peanuts.
