Seven Pound Fudge

3 large bars (8 oz. each) milk chocolate, broken in small pieces
2 pkgs. (11 1/2 oz. each) milk chocolate chips
1 large jar (13 oz.) marshmallow creme
4 cups sugar
1 tall can (13 oz.) evaporated milk
1/2 lb. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped black walnuts, walnuts, or pecans

In large mixing bowl of heavy-duty electric mixer, combine broken chocolate bars, chocolate chips, and marshmallow creme. Set aside. In large, heavy saucepan combine sugar, evaporated milk and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils. Boil 5 minutes. Pour hot mixture over chocolate mixture. Beat until ingredients are thoroughly blended. Beat in vanilla. Remove beater and stir in chopped nuts. Quickly pour mixture into buttered 9x13 inch pan. Cool. Cover tightly and refrigerate until firm enough to cut into small squares. Flavor will be best after 1 or 2 weeks of storage.
