Given to Amy DeVore by Emma Julian c. 1930, this is supposedly the original recipe for See's Fudge, produced by the See's Candy Company, Los Angeles. Emma allegedly worked for See's and later owned her own candy store. See's fudge is extremely good, as are all of their candies; although it's a bit less distinctive than, say, the Apple Pie Truffle. Nonetheless, this is a darned fine fudge, even if this recipe produces an awful lot of it.

    4 1/2  cups          Sugar
    3      packages      Chocolate chips (12 oz ea)
      1/2  pound         Margarine
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla (real vanilla extract)
    1      can           Evaporated milk
    7      ounces        Marshmallow cream
    2      cups          Nuts
Mix 4 1/2 cups sugar with one can evaporated milk. Bring to a rolling boil and boil 7 to 8 minutes, stirring often. (Milk burns very easily, so don't walk away from the stove!) Mix together in a large bowl: 3 packages chocolate chips, 7 oz. jar marshmallow cream, 1/2 lb. melted margarine. Cream margarine and marshmallow together and add chocolate chips. Pour hot milk-and-sugar mixture over chocolate mixture. After chocolate has melted, add 2 cups of nuts and 1 tsp. of vanilla, blend well, pour into buttered pans and chill in refrigerator. Cut into squares before firm. This recipe makes about 5 lbs of fudge. As a listing of this recipe says, "No one has attempted a calorie count, but it's estimated that each piece contains about 47 gazillion calories."
