If you need a Valentine's day treat, this is easy . . . the hardest part (especially for the 4 year old) is waiting the 3 hours to slice and eat it!
I was going to make fudge at Christmas time and even had the ingredients, but my girls got sick, I got behind and it was one project that just didn't materialize. So, I saved the idea (and the mini marshmallows) for today.
The recipe can be found here. I followed it exactly and it looks good. I really liked how it didn't involve a candy thermometer and the ingredients were common. I even (for once) lined my pan so that I have a chance of getting the fudge out to slice it into squares and give as gifts. Even if it is my birthday, I can't eat the whole pan myself!
|After I got Big all excited about the project, I realized that most of the cooking was on the stovetop with hot liquid sugary mess. So, she measured into the pot before I turned on the heat and then got to decorate.|
|The best part . . . . . sprinkles!|
|Now we have to wait 3 hours|
