so...i didn't actually MAKE the fudge this weekend like i said i was going to. but, i did buy all the ingredients at the store yesterday and am going to make it for thanksgiving day. i haven't made this since thanksgiving 2008, but i found my recipe in my recipe box (along with a ton of other good recipes that i haven't even tried). it slipped my mind how EASY this fudge is to make. instead of making it yesterday, i just decided to find a picture and give you the recipe. so, you could make it for thanksgiving. i promise, it will be a favorite among family and friends.

rocky road fudge
good housekeeping magazine (circa 2005)
1-12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup CRUNCHY peanut butter (my SIL makes this with creamy pb and its just as good)
1 tbs butter
1 10 1/2 oz bag minituare marshmallows
1. grease 8x8 or 9x9 square baking dish and line with plastic wrap.
2. in saucepan, combine chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and butter.
3. cook over medium heat 2-3 minutes or just until ingredients are melted, stirring constantly.
4. remove from heat and stir marshmallows into fudge mixture.
5. pour into lined pan and spread evenly.
6. cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. (if i am super prepared i will let this refrigerate over night. it makes cutting it up super easy!)
7. invert fudge onto cutting board; remove plastic wrap. turn fudge top side up. cut fudge into 36 pieces. (i never get 36 pieces out of it, i think i cut the pieces too big. i usually get a couple dozen. maybe a little more)
8. if not served immediately, store in refrigerator!
SERIOUSLY, so easy! make it this thanksgiving. you will NOT be disappointed.
happy making and enjoy all the recipes at the blog hop!
