My true love gave to me…dessert!
Memories of the holidays always seem to center around my Gramma’s house, more specifically, Gramma’s food. She would put out a spread and we’d eat for hours. Years later, my mother continued this tradition and now that I have a house and kids of my own, it seems only natural that I do the same.
For me, no Christmas is complete without fudge. Now, there are a lot of recipes out there, but I find this particular one to be the absolute best. Unfortunately, I can’t say it’s my Gramma’s secret recipe – it’s actually Better Homes and Gardens’.
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 – 5 oz can of evaporated milk
1 stick of butter (don’t even try to use margarine)
2 cups of tiny marshmallows
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of walnuts (chopped, chunks, whatever you like)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
First, line a square baking dish with foil and butter it up. Then, butter a sauce pan and then combine butter, sugar, evap. milk. Cook it for about 10 minutes – the mixture should be boiling. Reduce the heat down to medium and continue stirring for about another 6 minutes. Then remove from the heat, add the marshmallows, then the chocolate, then vanilla. Finally, add the nuts (always optional), and pour the mixture into your pan. Let it sit for a couple hours in the fridge and then you have almost 2 pounds of delicious fudge to serve at your holiday celebration.
