Phat Cow Fudge

Phat Cow Fudge is a tantalizing treat that is loaded with marshmallows, pecans, and of course, tons of chocolate. It gets its name because the recipe is pretty hot and tempting or "phat," as the kids call it these days. Its near to impossible to only have one piece, but go ahead and have two. You deserve it. Don't miss out on this perfect holiday treat and enjoy!

◦20 ounces Hershey's® milk chocolate bars, broken into pieces.
◦1(12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
◦1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, cut into pieces
◦4 cups sugar
◦1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
◦2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
◦4 cups frozen mini marshmallows
◦2 teaspoons vanilla extract
◦2 cups walnuts or pecans, chopped

1.Place four cups of mini marshmallows into the freezer until frozen.

2.In a large bowl, place broken milk chocolate bars, chocolate chips and butter pieces; set aside. In a large pan, combine sugar, evaporated milk and 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows. Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring constantly, then, continue to cook and stir at a light boil for 7 minutes.

3.Remove from heat and immediately pour over the chocolate/butter mixture. With a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until the chocolate is melted and loses its shine. Don't worry if it looks separated, just keep stirring. As it starts to cool it will lose its shine. Stir in the vanilla. Add the frozen marshmallows and walnuts/pecans. Spread into a large buttered cookie sheet (for a full batch I used two 9x13 baking dishes).

4.Cool completely. You can speed this up by putting it in the refrigerator. Cut into pieces and serve. Store in an airtight plastic container. Makes about 60-70 pieces.
