A Rose Recipe: Lazy Mama's Fudge
Oh my chocolate!
Lazy Mama's Fudge
This is a holiday favorite- While growing up, I remember my mom having "hen" parties with everyone making sweets together and taking home their prizes to be hidden away for "just mom's emergency chocolates". Now that I am grown, I like to hide mine in a tin away from my greedy husband and enjoy with a small glass of whiskey!
1/2 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Water
1 16 oz package of Powder Sugar
1/2 Cup Non fat powdered milk (dry!)
1/2 Cup unsweetened Cocoa
In a small sauce pan heat butter and water to just boiling. stir to melt butter. In a bowl sift together sugar, milk, cocoa and salt. make sure to break up any clumps! slowly add melted butter mixture, stir well until blended. If you like you can add marshmallows or dried strawberries or nuts. Make sure you use butter on pan then Pour into an 8x8x2 inch pan. Chill for 4 hours and serve. Makes 1 1/2 lbs of fudge.
*This recipe can also be improved upon by adding marshmallows and walnuts to create rocky road fudge.
