Maple Walnut Fudge

I LOVE fudge but that stuff is PRICEY! I honestly have NO CLUE why. The ingredients used to make fudge are very inexpensive. So, why not try this recipe and enjoy your own homemade fudge that is just as good as the stuff that they let you sample at Costco or the fudge they sell at the BYU bookstore. And an added bonus ... it couldn't be easier ... a fool proof recipe!

2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons maple flavored extract
50 walnut halves or pieces

1. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with foil.
2. Combine butter, evaporated milk, sugar, and salt in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan.
3. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly, over medium heat. Boil, stirring constantly, for 4 1/2 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
4. Stir in the marshmallows, morsels, nuts, and maple flavoring. Stir vigorously for 1 minute or until marshmallows are melted. Pour into prepared baking pan.
5. On top of fudge, place nut halves in rows spacing about 1/2 inch apart. Press into fudge (work fast so your fudge doesn't crack). Cut into squares with 1 nut half per square.
