Remove from microwave and quickly stir until well blended adding
vanilla. Optional- add chopped nuts or marshmallows. You will need
to work quickly as the fudge thickens as it cools.

Spread in 8 x 8 pan or loaf pan for thicker fudge. I line the pan with
wax paper or parchment paper for easy removal. When cool
                                                                                                                                                                            
lift form pan and cut into desired size pieces.
