This makes a big batch, 5 pounds of fudge! At Christmas time, I often make a few batches of this. I cut it in pieces and put it on a pretty holiday plate and give as a holiday gift! By the way if you like nuts, you can add  1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans right after add the vanilla.   Fold  in nuts and then pour into prepared pan.

    Where in this recipe do you add the 4 cups of mini marshmallows? Or was that ingredient a typo?
