Surprise!

I’m still alive and well, and living on Long Island.  RayRay is still the sweetest foster cat ever, and my beautiful daughter married our wonderful son-in-law in August.

I haven’t started my holiday cookies yet, but I found that the easiest thing in the world to make, and totally enjoy is fudge.  I made a batch and they went like wildfire.  Pieces (of a new batch) will go on my cookie trays.

Fudge

3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup butter

1 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, mini marshmallows, etc (optional)

Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter or   margarine in large microwaveable bowl.  Nuke 1 minute, and stir.  Then continue in 30 second intervals stirring between each till chocolate  is all melted and you can thoroughly mix, adding nuts, or whatever.

Line a brownie pan (8×8” or 9×9”) with parchment paper or aluminum foil to easily lift the fudge out (or butter).  Pour the fudge into the pan, and refrigerate for about 2 hours.  Take out and cut into squares.  If you are layering them in a container, put some of that parchment between the layers.

Gain 3 pounds.
