After Christmas Fun

Yesterday the fam went up to Rocky Mountain National Park to sled. There were tons of people on the hill; it looked like a bad 70s movie. It was really fun but cold, cold, cold! We tailgaited apr├ęs sled with hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows. Delish but too cold to stand outside and boil the water. Always an adventure, though.

I realize I owe my final recipe for the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies/Treats. On Christmas Eve, I completed the journey with a fudge recipe from the marshmallow bag. Thank God we've reached the end. My thighs say, "NO!"

Easy Fudge

2 tablespoons butter
⅔ cup evaporated mile
1¾ cups sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
2½ cups miniature marshmallows
1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Combine butter, milk, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Boil for 4-5 minutes, stirring.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in marshmallows, chocolate chips, walnuts and vanilla.
  4. Stir vigorously until chocolate chips and marshmallows are melted.
  5. Pour into a foil-lined or buttered 8x8 baking pan.
  6. Sprinkle with additional walnuts if desired.
  7. Chill until firm.

Happy Holidays!
