A Great Christmas Recipe

My wife has been hunting for this recipe for a long time and since she found she wants to share it with everyone for Christmas.  I told her I would let her post it if she would make me a sample and I liked it.  A sneaky trick, but it worked I got some.  Well anyway, it is very good.  Enjoy.

Chocolate Fudge:

The following recipes have nothing to do with MAN’s survival, (although it makes life for them easier) but because of the holidays thought you would like something quick.

I found my recipe for quick fudge.  When my kids were going to school, I use to make these for their friends. My house was the restaurant for after school.  These are quick and easy.

  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • 6 oz. semisweet chocolate or bag of chocolate chips
  • 4 oz. marshmallows about 14 large (I use mini ones) they melt faster
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts  (Optional)

Combine sugar, milk and butter and cook to a soft ball stage, (Soft ball stage is 240 degrees if you use a candy thermometer, or if dropped in cold water a soft ball is formed) stirring very frequently to prevent scorching.  Remove from heat; add chocolate, marshmallows and vanilla and stir until chocolate and marshmallows are completely melted. Stir in chopped walnuts.  Turn into a buttered 8” square pan. Cool – Cut into squares.

Makes 64 1 inch squares

Macadamia Fudge:

  • 41/2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter unsalted
  • 1 (13 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 3 (4 oz) bars sweet cooking chocolate
  • 1 (12 oz) pkg semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped macadamia nuts

Line 2 (9 inch) square pans with waxed paper. Combine sugar, butter and milk in heavy 2 quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. At first sign of a bubble, simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add all ingredients except 1 cup nuts. Sprinkle with remaining nuts, pressing lightly into surface. Cut into squares.

Hope you try these and enjoy them as much as we do.
