Day 12: Fannie May Fudge!

Merry Christmas! Today is day 12 of our 12 Days of Homemade Christmas!

For the past few weeks Jonah and his class have been reading "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" by Roald Dahl. To celebrate the end of the book and the coming holidays, Jonah's amazing teacher made fudge with the kids. Each child got to help make the fudge and then bring home a box to share with their family. The recipe they made has been in their teacher's family for years and years. It's called Fannie May Fudge. I'm not sure if it is actually from Fannie May, or just tastes like it! Either way it's amazing - delicious and very easy to make!

The recipe:

4 cups of sugar
1 cup of whole milk
1 cup of butter softened
1 tsp of vanilla
25 marshmallows
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate chips
13 oz. milk chocolate chips
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup of nuts or other add ins - optional
2 - 9x13 inch baking pans lightly greased

In a large pan, heat milk, sugar, butter and vanilla. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes.

Turn off the heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add the chocolate ingredient one at a time until they are melted completely. Add nuts or other add ins. If the fudge gets too thick, heat on low for a little bit.pour into the 2 9x13 inch pans.

Jonah wanted to make his like he did at school. He added crushed up candy canes and sprinkles! He says he felt just like Willy Wonka!

How yummy does that look! We have enough to share with friends and family, as well as some left for us!

If you and the kiddos are looking for some sweet fun over winter break, grab a copy of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" then whip up a batch of this delicious fudge!

Happy Holidays everyone! Maggie and I are going to take a little break. We'll be back after the new year!
