There’s a great little article in the February issue of Guideposts titled Sweet Solution. It’s a beautiful, motivational story about a woman who shares a great, great passion of mine – chocolate! Click HERE for the story.
Below is one of Susan Mazzone’s delicious recipes. It’s for chocolate fudge and my mouth is already watering.
SUSAN’S FUDGE RECIPE
3/4 cup marshmallow cream
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk (little more if needed)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla extract
Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the first five ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and pour in chocolate chips. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts and vanilla, and try to keep your fingers out of it! Pour into your prepared pan and chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours until firm.
I know what I’ll be having for dessert tonight!
