From Ketchup...WCW: FUDGE! Need We Say More?

Honestly, not much else needs to be said but “little miss wordy” is here to add just a few things.


My Grandpa makes the best fudge! For serious…no joking, THE best! He usually makes it for the big holiday gatherings like Christmas. Us grandkids would look forward to the huge spread of cookies that my grandma would make and his amazing fudge. It’s always been one of my sister Al’s and my favorites. We’d sneak the bite size pieces into our mouths and let it melt. Granted after a few trips to the kitchen we’d have ourselves a pretty good tummy ache but it was totally worth it, EVERY time!

I knew that making fudge was easy but THIS easy…only one could dream. Especially when “it’s that time of the month” and you just can’t seem to subdue that chocolate craving. Awww…but I may have a remedy. If nothing else it’s a good vehicle to get you directly induced into that sugar coma you’ve been longing for.

What you’ll need:1 lb. powdered sugar (that’s one box or half a bag)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup milk
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional) In my house it’s not an option! Blech!

What to do:
Mix the sugar and cocoa in a microwave safe bowl. Make a well in the middle, add the butter and milk. Cook uncovered for 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir to blend and then whip with a hand mixer until smooth (if you have one otherwise, get ready for a workout!) Add the marshmallows and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Stir in the vanilla and add nuts. Spread in a buttered (do not use PAM) 8X8 or 9X9 pan. Refrigerate for an hour or freeze (for RAPID results) for 20-30 minutes.

Once it’s firm cut it into bit size squares, grab a glass of milk, turn the lights down low and 


Let me know how it turns out!
