Simple Chocolate Fudge

    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
    3 cups mini marshmallows
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
    1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
    Butter an 8-inch square baking pan; line with 2 crisscrossed pieces of parchment paper, leaving an overhang. Butter paper.
    In a large saucepan, combine butter, marshmallows, sugar, cream, and salt; cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Off heat, stir in vanilla, chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup walnuts until chocolate is melted.
    Pour fudge into prepared pan, and smooth top; sprinkle with remaining walnuts. Let cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
    Using overhang, lift fudge onto a cutting board; cut into squares (6 rows by 6 rows).
