If your gift recipients are fudge lovers – and who isn’t? – Nestlé Toll House Fudge is the answer. It can be made with semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate or butterscotch morsels. Make a batch of each, then mix and match the flavors in a goody bag or holiday box. For an extra-special presentation, put each piece of fudge in a little paper candy cup.

Nestlé Toll House Fudge
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk (2⁄3 cup)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Line 8-inch square baking pan with large sheet of foil, allowing excess to overlap two sides of pan, for easy removal of fudge.
In medium, heavy-duty saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Bring to full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add marshmallows, chocolate morsels, nuts and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously for 1 minute, or until marshmallows are melted.
Pour into prepared baking pan and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm.
Holding excess foil, lift fudge from pan; remove foil. Cut into bite-size pieces. Yields 48 pieces.
