Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you if you’re young at heart
–Young at Heart lyrics
- 22 individual Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (regular size), unwrapped and divided
- 3 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Line a 9×9-inch pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place 16 peanut butter cups in an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until chips and milk melt together.
Once everything is melted, spread evenly over peanut butter cups in prepared pan. Crumble remaining Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and sprinkle over the top, pressing them lightly into the fudge. Cool on counter-top until fudge reaches room temperature, then cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to harden completely. Cut into squares and serve. Makes 32 bite-sized servings.
Let the holiday baking begin
2 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 5 oz. can evaporated milk (2/3 c.)
1 Jar (7 1/2oz) Marshmallow Fluff
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1 12-oz. package semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 /2 c. chopped walnuts
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. In large saucepan combine the first 5 ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Increase heat to Medium and bring to a full-rolling boil being careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Boil slowly, stirring constantly for 5 minutes (use Soft-Ball test). Remore from heat, stir in vanilla and chocolate until chocolate is melted. Add nuts. Turn into greased pan and cool. Makes 2 1/2 pounds.
I found this retro recipe at http://pzrservices.typepad.com/vintagerecipes.
I got this recipe and photo from a facebook post. Apparently this recipe is from Marie, at “The English Kitchen.”
3/4 cup flour
1 cup of regular sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 ounces butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
2 handfuls of mini marshmallows
For the frosting:
2 ounces butter, melted (1/4 cup)
1 ounce cocoa powder, sifted (1/4 cup)
2 ounces evaporated milk (1/4 cup)
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted (8 ounces)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch spring form pan set aside.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Beat together the butter, eggs and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Stir in the toasted nuts. Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake on a middle shelf of the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle the marshmallows on top and return to the oven for a few minutes to melt the marshmallows. Remove from the oven and carefully spread the chocolate frosting over top.
To make the chocolate frosting mix all ingredients together in a bowl, beating with an electric whisk until smooth and thick. Spread on the hot marshmallows. Let cool completely. Cut into wedges to serve.
