2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels (chips)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Line an 8-inch square baking dish with either aluminum foil or waxed paper.
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and salt. Over medium heat, bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Let boil, stirring constantly, for approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.Stir in marshmallows, chocolate morsels, nuts, and vanilla extract.

Storage - How To Store Fudge:
- Room Temperature: Fudge stored at room temperature in an air-tight container will last 7 to 14 days. Fudge should be stored in an air-tight container (tin or plastic), each layer separated by a sheet of waxed paper. Fudge stored in an air-tight container at room temperature will "ripen" over the first 24 hours.
- Refrigerator: Fudge stored in the refrigerator can last 2 to 3 weeks when kept in an air-tight container.
- Freezer: Frozen fudge will keep for months if wrapped in waxed paper, then again in aluminum foil, and stored in an air-tight container. Wrap each individual slice or the entire box with plastic or aluminum foil and seal thoroughly. Properly wrapped it should keep for several months. Leave fudge in its wrapping for at least two hours upon removal from the freezer to permit it to return to room temperature.
