Sorry I'm late...I've had wireless issue for almost a week, but I think we're good. I fixed it...by myself...with the help of a guy from AT&T Uverse. We had a nice chat. Literally, I did an online chat session with their tech support. It was great and SO much better than trying to make a phone call with my little ones around. And yes, I told him that. I seriously don't think he knew how much easier that made my life. So, my Mac and I are back to our daily relationship and all is well.
Anyhoo...the McLinksters over at the RHOK want us to share a Christmas cookie recipe and I think the story behind it. Go over there and get some more great recipes.
My recipe that I'm going to share isn't actually for cookies. It's for my grandma's Christmas fudge. It's super easy and super yum. Try it...you'll be glad you did. It always makes me miss my grandma when I eat it and when I make it. My grandma passed away almost 8 years ago and I still miss her terribly. The recipe card with this recipe is written in her handwriting, which makes it even more special. I could rewrite it so it fits in with my other recipe cards, but I like using HER recipe card.
Here's the recipe:
3/4 c. butter
3 c. sugar
2/3 c. evaporated milk
1 (12 oz) pkg. chocolate chips
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow creme
1 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
Lightly grease 9 x 13 pan. Mix butter, sugar and evaporated milk in a 3 quart saucepan; bring to full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes or until a candy thermometer reaches 234°, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in chips until melted. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Cool at room temperature. When cool cut into 1" squares.
Then eat the whole pan all at once.
I hope you enjoy!
