Heat the sugar, butter, salt, and evaporated milk over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil for 6 minutes. Put chocolate bits, German chocolate, marshmallow cream, and nutmeats in a bowl. Pour the boiling syrup over the ingredients. Beat until the chocolate is all melted, then pour into a buttered jelly roll pan (about 16 by 11 inches). Let stand for a few hours before cutting. Remember it is better the second day. Store in a tin box.
