2 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 marshmallows (not minis)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Grease or line an 8x8-inch pan with nonstick foil. Set aside.

In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, milk, marshmallows, butter, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is bubbling.

Boil and stir for 5 minutes; remove from the heat. Stir in the chocolate chips until completely melted. Add the walnuts and vanilla.

Spread into the prepared pan and cool for 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator before cutting.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
