Just call me Betty....Fudge Recipes x3!

First off...
Let's just start referring to me as Betty...
Betty Crocker, that is!

I have been super busy in the kitchen preparing lots of goodies...
I cannot express is words how much I love baking for the holidays...
I am not sure why I do not bake some of the treats during the year...
I think I just like to save it up for December and go nuts!

Here is a sneak at what I have whipped up the past few days....
 He licked that bad boy CLEAN...haha

Let's break it down....
I used two recipes for these creations...
Chocolate Fudge and Peanut Butter Fudge!
Then I mixed and matched and made...
Chocolate Walnut Fudge
Chocolate/Peanut Butter Fudge
Reese's Cup Fudge

Here are the two main recipes...
Chocolate Fudge
3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter
7oz Marshmellow Cream (I really just used half of a 13 oz jar split between the 2 recipes)
1/2 tsp vanilla
12 oz Chocolate Chips 

Peanut Butter Fudge (same recipe minus Chocolate Chips)
(Killer Crack Fudge)
3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter
7oz Marshmellow Cream (remaining from the jar)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup Peanut Butter....DO NOT USE ORGANIC(with the oil on top-I ruined a batch, it was gritty)

For both recipes:
Bring butter, evaporated milk, and sugar to a boil. 
Continue boiling over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly! 
Once the 5 minutes is up stir in the remaining ingredients! 
Pour into a 9x13 pan (buttered) and allow to set up...
I let mine sit out for an hour then put it in the fridge...
DO NOT cut it right out of the fridge...it gets stuck!
Allow it to return to room temperature before you cut it nicely
(unless your just snacking, haha that is okay)

Variations of the recipes...
For the Chocolate Walnut Fudge...
I used the chocolate fudge recipe and topped with chopped walnuts
Top instantly so the walnuts stick!! I love this one!:)

For the Chocolate Peanut Butter AND
Reese's Cup Fudge
I started with making just one batch of PB Fudge, and splitting it between 2-9x13 pans
I topped the one with Reese's and left the other plain...
(I used 2 of those 8 packs of Reese's cups...the dollar ones)
Then I made a batch of the chocolate fudge and once again split it between to 2 pans...
I allowed it to set as usual....IT IS AMAZING!!! 
I liked having one of each in case the Reese's is too rich flavored for people....
Let's take another look at it...YUM!
I also made my favorite Peanut Butter Kisses cookies...
I totally cheated and just bought the Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix...
I used dark and milk chocolate kisses...
I accidentially put them in the container before they were cooled...
so I was forced to eat the rejects...

I hope you enjoy the fudge recipes....
Next on the agenda is...
Buckeyes, Chex Mix, Chocolate Pretzels, and lots of sugar cookies...
and whatever else I find on pinterest {obsessed}
This year I am trying to find the perfect sugar cookie recipe...
If you have any let me know! 
I have never made them (shocker, I know!)
But I want to make sure they are the best in the world!

  8. The secret in my fudge recipe I gave you is.....??? Did you figure it out?? People ask me to make them whole batches now thats alot of fudge. Ive already made 5 batches and its all gone. I still need to make my homemade carmel corn,choc covered stuff,cut outs(which I hate) and white chex mix stuff! ugh! Next week....

  9. Oh and if youre interested my c ut out recipe is an Amish recipe and calls for a whole pound of real butter! Yikes! I hate that it makes soooo many so maybe I will just cut it in half.

  10. This is so heavenly! Get in my belly!

    OMGosh, nothing goes better together than chocolate & peanut butter. Thank you for this, you awesome chicky you! Xoxo

  11. My hubby, two kids, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate and peanut butter! The kiddos and I will be making this while the hubby is at work today. We might just do a half batch...or if we make the whole batch maybe I will try hiding some in the freezer to bring to family gatherings next weekend - otherwise my hubby will eat it all!!! I'm good about a little treat here and there...he has a major sweet tooth ;-)

    Hope the 1st of your family gatherings goes well!

  12. Mmm these look so tasty! I have bookmarked the recipe, i hope to bake these yummies before the new year is here...if i can find the time that is!
