December 13 -- More Festive Fudge!

Here is one more fudge recipe for your enjoyment.


1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup butter or margarine (1/2 stick)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. orange extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped pecans

In large heavy saucepan, combine first 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil
over medium high heat. Boil 5 minutes, stirring with a wire whisk.
Remove from heat, stir in chips until melted. Stir in the extracts and
then the nuts and raisins. Replace your whisk with a spoon and beat by
hand until glossy, 30 to 60 seconds. If needed, you may add up to 2
Tblsp. water to make it glossy, but you probably won't need to. Turn
into a buttered 11 x 7” or 9 x 12” pan. Cool completely, then cut in

This fudge is absolutely wonderful! It really tastes like Christmas!
I found the recipe many years ago in my favorite cooking newsletter,
Cook & Tell , and
have made it nearly every Christmas since then.

    This sounds delicious, but then all your recipes do!!! I am enjoying your posts everyday...I appreciate the time it takes for you to do it too. I hope to make the shortbread cookies tomorrow but I need more corn starch. They sound yummy too.

    Take care of yourself with all the busyness of the season.
    Blessings, Patty

  2. Hi Patty!

    Thanks for your sweet comments... Hope the shortbread cookies come out well for you. I haven't made mine yet this year. They are VERY easy, though, and I need to get to them soon. They are one cookie we just can't seem to do without at Christmas.

    Thanks too for the reminder to take care of myself. I'm trying to! Hope all is well with you too and that you are taking care of YOURself. Let me know how your tests come out.

    God bless,
