Weekend "Baking": Rocky Road Fudge

My Mom and I are crazy obsessed with Food Network, *shocker*, I know.

I love Nigella and Giada De Laurentis because the way they describe things is just delicious

Paula Deen and Ina Garten have fun stories use lots of butter.

Alton Brown is a bit coo-coo but he explains the science behind it all in such a fun way.

Jaime Oliver and Tyler Florence make every recipe like they're in lve with it.

This Rocky Road Fudge from an episode of Tyler's show, Food 911, that we saw a hundred years ago. It's ridiculously easy and really almost truffle-like so if you live in a place that's hot, try and keep these in the fridge so they don't go all melty on you.

Happy Weekend! 


1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup
toasted slivered almonds
1 cup mini marshmallows

Combine butter, evaporated milk, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a full boil for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool for 3 to five minutes*. Stir in the chocolate until melted and smooth. Fold in the almonds and marshmallows**. Pour into a parchment or foil lined 8-inch square baking pan. Chill until firm, about 2 to 4 hours. Cut into 12 squares.

*If the chocolate is added while your fudge is too hot, the mixture will separate so make sure you wait a few minutes first.

**Try and add the marshmallows at the very very last possible minute so they don't melt entirely. Don't wait too long though, they're a little difficult to fold into fudge that's really thickened up.
