My "sweet tooth" flared up this afternoon (and that's a good thing), I decided to make this easy fudge. You should make it, too.

This is a "classic" recipe that I have found while surfing through LIFE magazines, online. It said "Can't Fail-5 Minute Fudge.", it takes a little longer than 5 minutes, but you will see what they mean.

1&1/2 C diced (or "mini") marshmallows

loading... the sugary mix starts cooling right away, and you need the all that heat to melt the marshmallows and chips.

Stir 1-2 minutes, or until the marshmallows melt.

Then add:
