Tasty Tuesday was on hiatus over the holidays, but it’s back as of this week. I just wanted to let you know that I am in the process of adding pictures to each of the recipes. I hope to have this done in the next couple of weeks.
I thought I would start this week’s Tasty Tuesday with a 5 minute fudge recipe. I actually found this recipe on Rachael Ray’s website and adapted it so that my hubby could enjoy it with me.
5 Minute Fudge
1 bag milk chocolate morsals
9 ounce bag butterscotch morsals
1 (14 oz) can condensed milk
1 teaspoon1 (8-ounce) can walnut halves
1/2 cup (a couple of handfuls) currants
8-inch cake pan, lightly greased with softened butter
Candied cherries, red and green, for garnish, optional extract
Place a heavy pot on the stove and preheat it over low heat. Add chips and milk and stir until chips are melted and milk combined. Save the empty condensed milk can. Stir in vanilla and remove fudge from heat. Add nuts and currants and stir in immediately.
Cover empty condensed milk can with plastic food wrap and center it in the greased cake pan. Spoon fudge into pan around can, making sure to recenter can if it drifts.
The fudge will set up almost immediately. Garnish can only be added in the first minute or 2 the fudge is in the pan, so work quickly. Decorate your wreath with "holly" made from cut candied red and green cherries. A wreath left plain can be garnished with a pretty fabric bow when serving. Chill covered in the refrigerator and slice fudge very thin when ready to serve, a little goes a long way.
