Pour mixture into 9 x 13 glass dish.
Let stand until cool.
Slice to your desired size.


TIP:
 I use the edge of a medal spatula for slicing instead of a knife.  It makes a smoother edge!



Peanut Butter Fudge anyone?

Use the same recipe above, with these changes.

Add 1/2 cup smooth Peanut Butter, not the Chocolate Bits.
Add 1/4 cup Marshmallow Creme, not the Jar.
Add pecans, not the walnuts.
Add 1/2 Cup of Butter, not the 1 Cup.

That's it!


Want some Chocolate with that Peanut Butter Fudge?
When you remove from Microwave, sprinkle the top with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bits and gently press into mixture. 

I made both!
