Christmas Baking #1

I guess really the title of this blog post shouldn't be "Christmas Baking #1" because there is no baking involved, just microwaving but Christmas Microwaving sounds dumb. . .

3 c sugar
2/3 c evaporated milk
1 pkg (8 oz) Bakers Semi-Sweet Chocolate, broken into pieces
1 jar (7 oz) Marshmallow Creme
1 tsp vanilla
1 c chopped nuts

Microwave margarine 4 quart microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well.

Microwave on HIGH 3 minutes; stir. Microwave 2 minutes longer or until mixture begins to boil; mix well. Microwave 3 minutes, stir. Microwave 2 1/2 minutes longer. Let stand 2 minutes.

Stir in chocolate until melted. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla; mix well. Stir in nuts. Pour into greased 9x13 inch pan. Cool at room temperature; cut into squares.
