Deluxe Holiday Fudge

1 1/2 packages (12-ounce size each) semisweet chocolate chips (3 cups)
2 cups miniature marshmallows or 16 large marshmallows, cut in half
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup dried cherries or chopped dried apricots.


Grease bottom and sides of square pan, 9x9x2 inches, with margarine, or
line with aluminum foil.

Heat chocolate chips, marshmallows and milk in 2-quart saucepan over medium
heat, stirring constantly, until chips and marshmallows are melted and
mixture is smooth.

Stir in vanilla, nuts and cherries. Immediately pour into pan. Cover and
refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Cut into 1-inch squares.

To Microwave:
Place chocolate chips, marshmallows and milk in 8-cup microwavable measure.
Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until
chips and marshmallows are melted and mixture can be stirred smooth.
Continue as directed in step 3.

Note: If you're a lover of lusciously smooth and creamy chocolate fudge,
just leave out the nuts and cherries. For extra chocolate flavor, use
creamy chocolate sweetened condensed milk, now available.

Makes 6 dozen candies
