Snowy Day = Fudge it!

I'm one of the minority who doesn't really like much chocolate - but others do so…..

Out came the 1926 heavy pot from waaaay under the cupboard. 

This is the easy way to make fudge and it always comes out good.

You have to make sure to use SWEETENED condensed milk (I use Eagle brand, one can) and 1 1/2 cups of morsels. I use Nestles semi-sweet variety. 

Note that sometimes the bags don't contain a full 18 ounces and that is what you need or you will get mush. Just buy more and measure. I bought the 36 ounce size and then divided it into halves. Now I can make cookies with the rest.


 After all is melted together, slow and low and stirred during the melting, I add 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla and pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 x 2 inch glass dish which is lined with non-stick aluminum wrap.


When the fudge is still warm, I poke cashews in for just a few bites. If you want nutty fudge, chipped walnuts or pecans could be quickly stirred into the mixture when it is still in the pot. The fudge has to be completely cooled down and then it can be removed to the counter for cutting. 


I use a hot long knife to cut pieces and then bag, or wrap in plastic and box it all to be distributed. 


Come on-a my house, my house, I'm gonna give you candy…..
