  • Makes
    about 5-1/2 pounds

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 cup butter, divided
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 36 large marshmallows
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Red and green paste food coloring
  • M&M's minis

Directions

  • Line a 15x10x1-in. pan with foil. Grease the foil and 3-in. cookie cutters with 1 tablespoon butter. Place cookie cutters in pan; set aside.
  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk and remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Remove from the heat; stir in marshmallows until melted. Add unsweetened chocolate and chocolate chips; stir until chips are melted. Stir in nuts and vanilla.
  • Spoon warm fudge into the prepared cookie cutters, filling to the top. Cool until set. To remove, gently push fudge out of cookie cutters. Tint frosting red and green; decorate fudge with frosting and M&M's.
Editor's Note: Instead of using cookie cutters, fudge can be prepared in a foil-lined buttered 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan and cut into squares.
