December 13 -- More Festive Fudge!
Here is one more fudge recipe for your enjoyment.
SPECIAL HOLIDAY FUDGE
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.
