oh fudge

I love love love fudge… especially peanut butter fudge. But, since peanuts are one of those things some people are allergic to, I stuck with chocolate. I guess some people are allergic to chocolate as well….but I am fairly confidant the recipients of my cookie and treat platters are “chocolate-friendly”.

You want peanut butter still? Me too.

I need to make some of that too.

Now, this recipe is from All Recipes. And, yes it is a marshmallow creme based fudge. I have a recipe for “standard” fudge, but honestly- it’s temperamental, and much harder to make. This fudge always comes out creamy. You can count on it.  I didn’t want to give you a temperamental recipe. Especially at holiday time. You know what I mean….

yes, you need to be over a stove for a bit…

because sugar can burn…

and it needs to boil for 5 minutes while you stir…

and 5 minutes seems like forever when you’re stirring….

but when you mix in the chocolate…

it’s worth it.

Nothing smells quite as good as that!

Spread it in a foil lined pan and let it chill…toss some festive sprinkles on it, while you’re at it.

Slice into itsy-bitsy squares, because it’s rich. Your booty will be happier with small pieces, too.
