French Silk Fudge

My Granddaughter wanted to make some fudge for her Daddy as a gift. So we spent the morning making French Silk Fudge!! YUM!!!!!!
This recipe is a little tricky. We did the microwave method to make this fudge. It says to cook the fudge in the microwave for 3 minutes. Take it out stir it and cook again on high for 3 minutes. You have to watch it really, really close when you microwave it for the second 3 minutes, so that it does nor bubble up over the sides of your bowl. The recipe says use a large bowl. That is very important use the largest bowl that will fit into your microwave, because the sugar and milk does bubble up a lot!!

2/3 cups cream or 1 small can (5 fl. oz.) evaporated milk

1/4 cup butter
