Scrumptiously fudgy brownies.

This recipe is from 'Kraft' What's Cooking

Toblerone Fudge - from Kraft What's Cooking Magazine

Moist and Delicious Chocolate Cake and other Chocolate Recipes

This is the best fudge ever! So creamy and tasty! You won't be able to have just one piece!

Toblerone Fudge

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup evaporated milk

1 bar Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate, broken into pieces

LIne a 8 -inch square baking pan with parchment paper, with ends of paper extending over sides of pan; set aside. Place sugar, butter and evaporated milk in large heavy saucepan.

Bring to a full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Cutting Fudge

When cutting creamy fudge or bars, wipe off the knife blade between cuts with a clean damp towel. This will prevent the filling from building up on the knife blade and make clean edges on your bars.

3/4 cup parowax (paraffin)

Have cherries very well drained and dry on paper towels overnight.

These would be great to serve at a shower or anniversary!
