mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas tree lights)
Ever since the "holiday recipes" prompt a few days ago, I've been meaning to post the one recipe I made last Christmas - fudge. I didn't make it on my own initiative, either - my mother tore the recipe out of a magazine and demanded that I make it. And I did, and it was awfully good. I'll probably be making it again sometime this week.


Never-fail fudge
(from marshmallowfluff.com)

one 7-1/2 oz. jar Marshmallow Fluff
1/2 stick butter or margarine
one 5.33 oz can evaporated milk
2-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. Combine first 5 ingredients in large saucepan. Stir over low heat until blended. Heat to a full rolling boil, being careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Boil slowly, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and chocolate until chocolate is melted. Add nuts. Turn into greased pan and cool. Makes 2-1/2 pounds.

---------------------------

Of course this calls for Marshmallow Fluff but I couldn't find it so I used Kroger brand marshmallow cream. It seems to have worked fine. Other notes: I used butter; evaporated milk seems to only come in 5-oz. cans but I figured that was close enough; and I used pecans instead of walnuts.

And my one criticism after eating was that it didn't have enough nuts to suit me - I think I will double them next time.
