We've finally had the sun come out for the past three days and I'm feeling like a human again! I was even able to go back to work and I was thrilled! Don't get me wrong - I love being at home with my husband and son but not for 6 days in a row! Enough is enough already. They are mentioning snow again for Monday but that it may not be more than several inches. After what we have been through here in northern Virginia a few inches is certainly not a big deal anymore!
My husband had picked up some Fluff a while back and asked if I could make some fudge (this was really back during the Christmas holidays!). Anyhow, time had gotten away from me but since we were all snowbound last week I kept eyeing the container of Fluff and decided it was finally time to make this. I was reluctant since we were all stuck in the house and I really didn't want to snack all day on fudge! This turned out to be really good and we all enjoyed it. It makes quite a bit and I ended up taking some back to work with me at the end of the week. My coworkers all loved it. I think the next time I would add walnuts to it. The recipe for this was on the back of the Fluff container. It originally calls for adding nuts if desired, but my son prefers chocolate and fudge without them so that is why I omitted them.
I'm quite the horror movie fan and went to see The Wolfman today and I highly recommend it! Benecio Del Toro is terrific in the movie and there are quite few jump out of your seat moments! It's not for the squeamish but if you enjoy horror movies you will like this one.
5 cups sugar
2 small (5 ounce) cans evaporated milk
1/4 lb butter or margarine (I used butter)
1 Jar (16 ounce) marshmallow Fluff
1 tsp salt
1 1/1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts (optional)
2 large (12 ounce) packages semi sweet chocolate pieces or chips
Combine first 5 ingredients in large sauce pan. Stir over low heat until blended.
Bring to a boil over moderate heat. DO NOT mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Then boil slowly, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate and vanilla (and nuts, if used) until chocolate is melted. Pour into 2 buttered 9 x 9 inch pans (I used one 9 x 13 inch pan) and let cool.
