Chocolate Walnut Marshmallow Fudge

Chocolate Walnut Marshmallow Fudge! This fudge is just so easy to make! Perfect to take as a gift, just put the fudge into a tin or a lovely dish & there you have it! This will be a well appreciated gift for everyone!

My fav fudge has nuts in it so this recipe is a winner for me! Oh… & marshmallows… and chocolate ? Delish!

The recipe is from the Eagle Brand website so I knew it would be great!

Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.eaglebrand.com/recipe-detail/chocolatesnowswirlfudge-3970

You are going to want to make this over and over! The Ingredients are Chocolate Chips, a jar of condensed milk, butter, vanilla, walnuts & marshmallows!

NOTE: This fudge would be delish without nuts too so if you don’t like nuts or some has an allergy, leave them out!

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

3 cups of chocolate chips

1 300 ml can sweetened condensed milk

4 tablespoons of butter, you will use this divided

a pinch of salt

11/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped walnuts *** pecans would be good too

2 cup mini marshmallow. ***but I am sure you can use large marshmallows if that is what you have!

Method

You need a square 9×9 dish Line the dish with parchment or wax paper & then spray the paper with cooking spray. TIP: Leave about an inch of an overhang with the paper so it is easy to lift yah fudge out of the pan when you are ready to cut it

  1. Melt the 3 cups of chocolate chips, the can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tbsp of butter & salt. You can do this in a saucepan over medium heat stirring often or in a microwave on medium heat stirring after every minute until melted. I don’t know how long this will take, it depends on your microwave actually but be careful not to burn this or you will have to start again!
  2. When melted, stir in the vanilla & nuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan & set aside
  3. now, melt the marshmallows with the remaining 2 tbsp butter. Stir often. When the marshmallows are melted pour them over top of the fudge. Using a knife swirl the marshmallow through the fudge
  4. Chill for at ;east 2 hours in the fridge before cutting. Lift the fudge out of the pan with the overhang you left of parchment paper. Put onto a cutting board & cut into squares. You can cut them into any size squares you like!

Enjoy!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square recipe is from Kraft Canada. I had everything I needed in my pantry so that made this very  easy. It  only took a few minutes to put together. The chilling time was the longest part of this recipe.

I printed out this recipe in 2008 & on the paper I have written in a bright colours sharpie {this is the peanut butter squares everyone likes!) I like to make it for company on any dessert platter & also just to have for a snack! 

The ingredients are easy…nothing special, but when combines!! They are delish! Butter, graham wafer crumbs, icing sugar & peanut butter…then chocolate chips! So good 

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square takes minutes to make & has to chill a bit to firm up 

Here is the recipe  from Kraft Canada. note: I used chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate that was in the original recipe

1/2 cup butter

2 cups icing sugar 

1 1/2 cups graham wafer squares

1 cup peanut butter 

12 oz chocolate chips 

Method

Line a 13 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper with some overhang so you can pull the squares up out of the dish to cut

  1. Melt the butter, then add the icing sugar..sift it into the bowl to get rid of any lumps
  2. Add the graham wafer squares & peanut butter. Mix well until completely combined 
  3. Pat this evenly into the prepared 9 x 13 dish
  4. Melt the chocolate & let it cool briefly then spread it over the base
  5. Let this cool & then cut partially into squares.. the recipe recommends cutting this into 40 squares but of course you can cut the squares any size you want
