MRS. FIELD’S DECADENT CHOCOLATE  FUDGE  (a Copycat recipe)        

1/2 c. light corn syrup                               

2 c. sugar

3/4 c. evaporated milk

1/4 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. butter                                           

1 1/3 c. miniature marshmallows                

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips                 

1 c. milk chocolate chips                           

1 tsp. vanilla

1 c. finely chopped walnuts

Place sugar, milk, corn syrup, salt and butter in saucepan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Place on medium heat and stir until mixture starts to boil. Do not scrape the sides of pan.  Reduce heat to low and place a lid on pot for 1 minute.  When time is up, remove lid and let boil lightly until the mixture reaches a soft ball stage.  Turn heat off, add chips, marshmallows and vanilla. Stir gently until all is melted.  Pour while hot into mixing bowl, and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes until slightly cooled, but still hot.  Then beat for about 5 minutes or until fudge is glossy and smooth.  Add nuts and stir well.  Pour into 9 x 9 inch pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Completely cool, cut in serving pieces.  Fudge will be smooth and soft.
