I looked at my daughter last night and told her we needed a sweet for my blog today. I told her it needed to be made from items that we had in the house. I didn’t care if it was a cookies, cake, or candy but she needed to be able to make it easily. Well, the great cupboard caper started. We had some butter but not enough for a large batch of butter cookies. We had some walnuts but no almonds. We had lemon extract but not much vanilla. In the end we had walnuts, milk chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows. She wanted to make simple fudge but we didn’t have sweetened condensed milk and I was NOT going to the store at 9:30 pm. I remembered a recipe from when I was a girl scout, a million years ago, that was candy melted in a pot on the stove. She asked if she could do it in the microwave and I said, “Lets try it!”
This was so easy to make and I could see this being a nice filler on a cookie or sweets tray. It was super easy to make and you could easily make them slightly smaller and make so many more in a double batch! Remember you can change the nuts, add raisins, or even craisins and a dark chocolate would be delicious. Play with the recipe and make it what you like.
