A Burgess Tradition from Nana
Have ready in a large container (we always used that tupperware 'fix and mix' bowl-plastic is better because it doesn't conduct the heat the way metal does):
2 large pkgs. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 bottles marshmallow cream (or whatever makes a total of 14 oz)
2 cups walnuts/pecans chopped or diced
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 pound butter
Boil together for 9 minutes:
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk - evaporated not condensed
Stir continuously while boiling. Pour cooked sugar - milk mixture over other ingredients and beat until chocolate chips are melted.
Then add frozen marshmallows. Pour into buttered pan. Mother's comment then is: Have successfully used a foil-lined cookie sheet - butter the foil...the mess is much easier to clean up.
