My mother came across this fudge recipe in a newspaper some 40 years ago. One taste and you'll see why it doesn't take long for a big batch to disappear. —Linda First, Hinsdale, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 3 milk chocolate candy bars (two 7 ounces, one 1.55 ounces), broken into pieces
  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts

Directions
