  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 5 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
  • candy sprinkles for decoration


  • Grease or line a 13x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper
  • In a large dutch oven or heavy pot, combine the sugar, butter and milk, and bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly
  • Boil for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly 
  • Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate chips until melted
  • Add marshmallow creme, chopped pecans, vanilla, and stir continuously until thoroughly combined and smooth
  • Pour into prepared baking pan, and top with holiday sprinkles, if desired. Refrigerate until set - at least 1 hour or longer
  • Cut into small squares, and store tightly covered


For best results, I recommend having all ingredients set out, measured and ready to go.
