150 candies

4 1/2
cups sugar
1/2
cup butter
1
(12-oz.) can (1 1/2 cups) evaporated milk
4 1/2
cups miniature marshmallows
1
(12-oz.) pkg. (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
12
oz. sweet baking chocolate, chopped
2
oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2
teaspoons vanilla
1
cup chopped pecans
25
caramels (from 14-oz. pkg.), unwrapped

  1. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over sides of pan; grease foil. In Dutch oven or 4-quart saucepan, combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk; cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Without stirring, boil 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat or until candy thermometer registers 234°F. Remove saucepan from heat.
  2. Add marshmallows, chocolate chips, sweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate; stir until all chocolate is melted. Stir in vanilla and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Quickly spread mixture in greased foil-lined pan.
  3. In medium saucepan, cook caramels and water over low heat until melted, stirring frequently. Drizzle melted caramels evenly over fudge. Sprinkle remaining pecans over caramel. Cool 2 hours.
  4. Use foil to lift fudge from pan; remove foil. Cut into 1-inch squares.

Recipe Fact
Fudge and turtles are popular holiday candies. This easy recipe combines these two tasty treats.
Make It Special
Whether serving fudge at home or giving it as a gift, place each square in a festive small foil or paper candy cup. Meant for chocolates such as peanut butter cups, candy cups are smaller than muffin cups. Look for them at candy and cake supply stores or in the grocery store baking aisle.
