Toothsome Tuesday

Each December Adorable Hubby receives his favorite holiday treat, now, now, this is a G-rated blog. Adorable Hubby's favorite, OK, second favorite holiday treat (can you tell he's peering over my shoulder) is Fudge.

I'm a chocolate lover like any good woman, fortunately, this treat doesn't tempt me... much. Which is why I willingly make a triple batch every year, put it in a big Tupperware in the fridge , then watch in amazement as Adorable Hubby nibbles one little piece a day, definitely not the same appetite as for his 'most favorite' holiday treat.

This is the best recipe I've found.

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup (5 1/2 oz can) evaporated milk
1 12oz pkg semisweet chocolate chips
1 7oz jar marshmallow cream
1 Cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, boil 5 min, over medium heat, again with the constant stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate chips until melted, stir in marshmallow and vanilla until smooth, pour into buttered 13"x9" pan, cool cut into squares, store in covered container.

A triple batch is enough for Adorable Hubby, a spot on the holiday treats trays I make to bring to parties, and, it used to last through New Years until our older boys discovered they enjoyed it, as babies they would cry when given fudge...yeah@@, go figure.

Can you make it in the microwave so you don't burn it? Mom

I've never had much success making it in the microwave, it really doesn't burn if you stir constantly on medium heat.

Sounds yummy. I usually do the microwave kind too, but I think I'll give yours a try!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I love comments alsmost as much as I love fudge. (Your recipe sounds similar to mine, except I have no idea what a jar of marshmallow cream is.) My blog will be very unlike yours in content as I have mostly girls where as you are surrounded by boys!

I give fudge as gifts every year to some extended family members that have told me that it's all they ever want. LOL. I like easy to please people.
