Foolproof Fudge (printable
My mother has been using this recipe that she found in a magazine for years. Everybody loves it. And it's easy.
3 cups (18 oz) semi-sweet
1 - 14 oz can Sweetened Condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
dash of salt
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp butter or margarine
½ to 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Line 8 or 9 inch square pan or baking dish with aluminum foil. Generously butter foil; set aside.
In a heavy saucepan or double-boiler, melt chocolate chips along with Condensed milk & salt. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts (optional) & vanilla. While still warm, spread evenly into prepared foil-lined dish.
Chill 2 hours or until firm. When firm, turn fudge upside down & remove foil. Cut fudge into squares. Store covered in refrigerator.
Marshmallow Variation: Omit nuts. Stir in 2 tbsp butter or margarine with vanilla. Fold in 2 cups miniature marshmallows (white or colored). Proceed with rest of recipe.
Yields about 2 pounds.
Creamy Rice Pudding (printable version)
If you like Rice Pudding, you're going to love this recipe. By adding whipped topping to the pudding itself, it becomes even richer & creamier.
2 tbsp butter or margarine
1 qt milk (low fat or regular)
dash of salt
1/3 cup white rice
1 – 3” strip lemon or orange peel (orange is my preference)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup non-dairy whipped topping
½ tsp Cinnamon plus extra for topping
¼ cup raisins (optional)
Melt butter or margarine in a 2 qt saucepan. Pour in milk & salt & bring to rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir in rice & citrus peel & continue to cook over medium heat for about 25 minutes or until rice is tender & puffy (an even creamier consistency can be obtained by adding a little more milk while the rice cooks & absorbs more of the liquid). Remove the peel & stir in sugar. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add about 1 cup of rice & milk mixture to eggs & combine. Gradually return the egg mix to the rest of rice in the saucepan, stirring constantly over LOW heat until the entire mixture thickens. Remove from heat & add vanilla (& raisins if desired). Allow to cool by folding mixture into itself. When slightly cooled, fold in whipped topping. Serve warm or chilled, dusted with cinnamon.
Yield: about 4 servings. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled.
