Ultimate Chocolate Walnut Fudge is a classic marshmallow fudge with chocolaty, nutty goodness!  This is the original Kraft Fantasy Fudge that your grandmothers and their grandmother's before used to make.  My mom made it every Christmas and I make it as well!

This technique combines the sugar, butter, and milk and boils it to a candy state.  This part is key to the success of making this fudge set up correctly.  (don't skip this!)  Other more modern versions of fudge making include using a sweetened condensed milk and they doesn't call for boiling the mixture.  These are good and all but I really want that "old fashioned" true version of fudge.  I brings back good memories, and food is about memories right?

This fudge isn't done lickety split, but is well worth the wait.  Once you've boiled the mixture, added in the chocolate and nuts you need to pour it out and let it set.  Please try to control your temptation to stick your finger in it and lick off a big chunk.  The fudge needs a good while to set up perfectly.
