FUDGE.....

Baby, it's cold outside! Yesterday, I spent the day at home, my sister and friend were over and we made some Christmas goodies! Thought I'd share the recipe I use for fudge...since coming across this one, I don't use any other, not because I couldn't make it, I could...it's just that this one is SO good and SO easy!
FUDGE
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk-chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in microwave safe bowl....microwave 1 minute on high.  Stir well then place back in microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir well.  Add vanilla and chopped pecans, stir til well blended.
Line the bottom of 8"x 8" pan with parchment paper but butter the sides.  Pour mixture into pan and spread evenly.  Chill until nice and firm.  Remove from pan (you may need to loosen sides with knife).  Cut into chunks and wrap in cello paper.

Giftie idea: Instead of using a pan, butter the sides of holiday cookie cutters, place upside down on wax paper lined cookie sheet and fill cutters with fudge.  Chill til firm.  Wrap in a cello-bag.

Well, it looks as if the sun is going to shine today! Still cold but alot nicer than gloomy rain or winter mix!
Winter chores have begun...oh the fun of life on the farm! 
Missing church this morning....my whole week will be off now! Better get off this ol' machine and get myself busy.  Maybe I'll make up some more goodies today!

Enjoy your day!
