Hello from a wet and wintry Ireland. It's been rainy and dull all weekend so we cheered ourselves up in the kitchen by making chocolate mallow fudge! It's delicious and really quick and easy to make ! My oldest daughter very thoughtfully cut some up and wrapped them up to give as little Halloween treats for her friends and I'll definitely be making some more for Christmas gifts.Thanks again to Tanya for supplying the Happy Halloween ribbon! Here's the recipe if you're interested:
3 oz butter 10 oz light brown sugar 4 1/2 oz evaporated milk 8 oz marshmallows 10 1/2 oz chopped milk chocolate 3 oz chopped dark chocolate (60% cocoa solids minimum)
Grease and line an 8" square baking tin Melt the butter, sugar and milk together in saucepan over a low heat. When melted, add the mallows - turn heat up and boil for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and add all the chocolate and stir until melted. Pour into tin and leave to set for at least 3 hours - when cooled you can put it in the fridge and it sets better. Then cut into cubes and try to resist nibbling....!
It was also a good chance to do some cross stitch - this one I love doing time and again from Primitive Betty's
And this one is from Liberty Hill Primitives
I'm also finishing a Christmas sampler for a customer so I'm keeping busy!
