the recipe *said*…

The recipe *said* it made 2 pints.

I was a little suspicious of that, given the basic ingredients added up to more than two pints by themselves, but it wasn’t until I started mixing it that I began to suspect the guy who wrote the recipe down got pints and quarts mixed up. I now have probably ten, possibly more, cups of marshmallow creme in the fridge.

I’d been planning on making not very much fudge this year. Hah! o.o

(Oddly, you can’t buy marshmallow creme in Ireland, or not that we’ve found, anyway (although I don’t know how that can be, because they *make* fudge here…), so we’ve taken to making our own, which is time-consuming but kind of cool. And invariably ends up with more creme than the recipe said, but YE GODS.)

My arm is wibbly from hanging onto the mixer. The poor mixer, which is not a Kitchen Aid and for this sort of thing ought to be, is exhausted. And I have enough marshmallow creme to drown a horse in…

    Easiest fudge recipe ever:

    1 can of frosting
    1 bag of chocolate chips.

    Melt chips in pan on stove, stir in frosting until it is melted and mixed together. Pour into square baking dish. Let cool.

    Perfect, delicious fudge. You already have all of your marshmallow cream, but just thought I’d share. I’ll never make fudge with marshmallow cream again, after discovering this recipe. And yes, it really does work. Any flavor of frosting and chips. Mint chocolate chips with vanilla frosting is incredibly good. As is peanut butter chips with cream cheese frosting.

    Yes!! I discovered that by accident. I had some chips, I had some leftover frosting, I had some chopped nuts … I microwaved them together and stirred and because my frosting to chocolate ratio was off I actually got something a lot harder than fudge and called ’em pseudo truffles instead, but mmmm.

    I got the recipe from a friend who cannot cook anything. And the ratio of 1 regular can to 1 bag of chips works perfectly.

    Your truffles sound good, too!

    I second this. I made it last year for my team, and they ADORED it. I have to make more this year.

    And my sister , who is a fudge snob, even said it was heavenly. Coming from her, that’s HIGH PRAISE.

    We call it “Onyx’s Miracle Fudge” around here. :)

    *laughs* Did you want the unadulterated creme, or were you hoping for fudge? The latter is somewhat easier to transport. And much less messy. And do you prefer walnuts, or not? How about peanut butter? :)
