Day 9 of the 12 Days of Goodies!!

Day 9 comes from Leah at the Imperfect Mama! I recently had the pleasure of meeting Leah and she is so sweet and soft-spoken! You can visit Leah's blog by clicking here!

Fantasy Fudge

You begin by melting 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks) on low heat.

Then you'll need 3 cups of sugar, and 2/3 cup evaporated milk (Remember how

I said it was criminal?) Add the sugar and evaporated milk. Turn the

heat to medium (I put mine between 6 and 7 here) and bring to a full

rolling boil. Once boiling, stir constantly for 5 minutes with heat

reduced slightly (I move mine to 5 here). After 5 minutes, remove from

heat. Immediately add 1 jar marshmallow cream (7 oz) and 1 package of

chips (12 oz) You can choose chocolate or peanut butter chips,

depending on what type of fudge you want. I like the great value

marshmallow creme better because 1. the jar's not breakable and Ry can

play with it and 2. the fudge seems to turn out with a softer

(chewier?) texture with it. Then you add 1 tsp vanilla, and you can

add 1 cup of chopped nuts if you choose. I don't like nuts of any

kind, so I left them out of my fudge. Stir until it's well blended and

then pour into a lightly greased pan. Just spray some Pam and you're

good to go! Make sure you use a 9x13 pan or bigger, or it might

overflow the pan. I had that problem. You should've seen Ry trying to

eat it off of the counter as it poured over the pan. Wish I had

thought to snap a picture of that. It was like a dog drooling over a

steak! When you're done, you'll wind up with some very delectable

fudge. But be warned, I am not to blame if it causes you to gain a

couple or ten pounds! ; )
