Merry Christmas Fudge

Creamy, Chocolately, Traditional Christmas Fudge!

2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups sugar (I substitute 1/2 cup sugar for Splenda to lower the carb count a little)
2/3 cup half and half
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate
1 teaspoon pure vanille extract

In a large heavy saucepan, bring the butter, sugar, half and half, and salt to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Let it continue to cook and gently boil for four minutes and stir constantly (don't walk away!). Remove from heat and immediately stir in the marshmallows, chocolate and vanilla, rapidly stirring until marshmallows are completely melted in. Pour into an 8-inch square pan and chill until firm. Makes two pounds of heaven!

The Christmas cactus is in full bloom--Christmas is almost here! 
Peace, joy, and happiness to you and yours.
