I Want Fudge.

I’ve been browsing around trying to find a good fudge recipe to try this christmas. I’ve never made fudge before but seeing as I’m a die hard chocolate fan I really want to try. I know fudge is terrible for you, so I was so excited to see that Heidi Swanson came up with a slightly healthier version of it. I’m dying to give it a try. You can find her recipe for Fantasy-ish Fudge here.

If you’ve ever made fudge, what’s your recipe? What’s your all time favorite holiday item?

    I have never made fudge. I do not have a recipe to share.

    However, I just wanted to let you know that I am a really, really good fudge sammpler.

    Interestingly, as I read this, there’s a coworker of mine who’s wife is a pastry chef. And he’s been bringing in some pretty amazing things..mostly decorative chocolates and orange creme filled bite sized chocolates and stuff. ohhh it’s soooo good. Today he brought in a box (even the box itself was made of chocolate–with detailed chocolate ribbon on top) filled with chocolate truffles and toffee. Can you imagine being married to someone who makes such amazing and delightful things by hand? delicious!

    My favourite are my gramma’s soft Suisse gingerbread cookies that’s recipe has been passed down to all of us, trying to perfect it so that some day, it tastes just like hers. I also lover peanut brittle at Christmastime. Or just being home and not writing exams!

    Here’s my easy recipe for fudge. I remember my dad making it quite a bit.

    2 tbsp butter
    2/3 cup evaporated milk (not condensed)
    1 2/3 cup sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    * boil 4-5 min. stirring often
    * take off heat
    1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
    1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
    2 cups mini marshmallows
    * stir until marshmallows are melted. I sometimes do this on VERY low heat just to keep it warm.
    * You can then add nuts, more marshmallows, or whatever you want. (Crushed candy cane goes over well at Christmas time.) You could also add these things after you pour into the pan so that they just sit on top.
    * Pour in butted 9×9 pan and let cool.
    I’ve also made maple walnut version of this. Very good.
