Black Walnut Fudge

Fudge is the perfect hiding place for biting black walnuts.  Or any other nut you are trying to get rid of.

Kraft Fantasy Fudge
About 40 2-inch square servings

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine 

1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup) (Do not use sweetened condensed milk.)
1-1/2 pkg. (12 squares) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped ( I used 12 oz Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
1 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla

Line a 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Bring sugar, butter and evaporated milk to full rolling boil in 3-qt. saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 4 min. or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add chocolate and marshmallow creme; stir until melted. Add nuts and vanilla; mix well.

Pour into prepared pan; spread to cover bottom of pan. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into squares.

Tip: Use a non-stick pan.  Have a small bowl of ice water ready to test for the stage of a soft ball that doesn't hold its shape.
