Maybe because it's Christmas, I'm feeling really nostalgic and wanting to get out all the recipes I have that have been passed down to us. Last week it was Garra's Nuts 'n Bolts and this week it's Matina's Fudge!
Matina was Mr. Fix-It's mom. She was a wonderful woman, loving, beautiful and a really good Mommy. She passed away when Mr. Fix-It was only 19.
Nick's Aunt Jennifer wrote out many of Matina's famous recipes and her fudge is one of them. So, yesterday I whipped up a batch with my little guy. Do you love to bake with your kids or little ones? I've always loved to bake, have memories of baking with my mum and always have one of my kiddies sitting on the counter as we bake up a treat.
This recipe is easy peasy and AMAZING! Nope, there's nothing light about this but it is so good and perfect for the holidays :)
Here's What You Need:
- 2 cups sugar
- 2/3 cups milk
- 13 large marshmallows
- 1/4 lb butter
- 1 pkg of chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp. vanilla
Here's What You Do:
1. Add the first 4 ingredients to a pot and cook on medium heat and bring to boil. Boil for 5 mins, stirring constantly. (You may have to squeeze the marshmallows with a spatula against the side of the pot to melt them).
3. Stir until mixture begins to fudge and
Pretty sad looking I know. But, if I had lined the pan with wax paper then my fudge would look oh so pretty. Oh well, it may not be presentation worthy but it's melt.in.your.mouth delicious, we've been eating it right out of the pan, my kids, and of course, Mr. Fix-It are in heaven, it's easy to make and I love that it came from Matina.
Keep it Beautiful.
