Response to DESSERTS--Cakes, frostings, cookies, pies, candy, puddings, etc.

This recipe is from my DH's cousin Virginia, by way of her sister, Bonnie. Do not try to speed it up by cooking over higher heat!

Virginia's Sour Cream Fudge
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup (one stick) margarine
11 or 12 ounces vanilla or white chocolate chips
7 ounce jar marshmallow cream
3/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
optional: about 3/4 cup chopped dried cherries, cranberries or apricots

Combine sugar, sour cream and margarine in saucepan. Bring to a full boil over medium heat and boil 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Mixture will make a soft ball in water. (If you use a candy thermometer, should be 234 degrees). Remove from heat and stir in chips and marshmallow cream until melted and blended. Add nuts and/or fruits. Pour into a lightly buttered 9x9 pan, chill and cut into pieces.

For chocolate sour cream fudge--Substitute chocolate chips for vanilla chips.
