Mmmmm... Christmas

In case anyone's keeping score, yes, it's snowing! Sadly, it has not been sticking. Today was cold and rainy/snowy - slushy, I guess.

But, tonight it's supposed to start getting c.o.l.d. Hopefully, we'll wake up to a little snow on the ground. Enough to play in would be fantastic! We'll see. The forecast still holds out hope for more later in the week.

But, the more pressing issue:

We went to town yesterday and stocked up on groceries. Today, I realized that we forgot to buy chocolate! Ack! We have chocolate chips and cocoa powder, so, clearly, I will have to get to work and make them into something snackable. (Sure it's a word!)

Therefore, I bring you...

Super Easy, Super Tasty, Quick and Simple Fudge

12 oz. (2 Cups) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Cup Butter
Microwave for about a minute, until it's all melty

In another bowl,
2 Eggs
Mix in
1 Pound Powdered Sugar

Combine the contents of the two bowls and mix well.
Stir in 1/3 teaspoon Vanilla.

Pour the fudge into a wax paper lined 8x8 pan
Refrigerate at least two hours

Cut into tiny pieces and nibble away!

I guarantee this fudge will turn out right every time and will taste great, without the need for tricky stove-top cooking or special ingredients.



  1. See - I knew you were up to the task of ultimate organizational creativity!!

    Our family "does" peanut butter fudge and although I already have a favorite recipe, I'm thinking of whipping up a batch of your version, only substituting peanut butter chips. I'll let you know how it turns out! The girls and I are going to a cookie exchange on the 21st - so that's four different kinds of cookies, of three dozen of each. Surely one of us will choose the fudge!

  2. mmmmmm. sounds so good!!! miss you, friend!! enjoy the snow:-)

  3. I have made this before but without the eggs, and it still works great. I will give it a try with the eggs since I have lots!! It might even give it some food value. :)
