Matina's Fudge

Hey everyone!

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).

2. Take off heat and add the package of chocolate chips and vanilla.

3. Stir until mixture begins to fudge and pour into greased square pan.  Okay so the recipe says to add to greased square pan. NOPE! DON'T DO IT! First of all, I couldn't find my square pan so I used a round one and second my fudge is now stuck to the bottom of my pan. So, definitely line your pan with wax paper. This way you'll be able to get the fudge out! Then cool in the fridge.
So, here's my finished photo....gulp!

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 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.

  1. I remember this fudge well Ali like it was only yesterday. The boys and I certainly went through a lot of it. Matina definitely had a knack for making fudge.
