Fudge & fur....

Hopefully there is no fur IN my

My co-worker gave me some fudge at Christmas, & it was the BEST ever!! I've made fudge for years --but it always seemed to get hard after just a few days. I had hers .....well ok not that long because I ate it all, lol......but it was so SOFT & yummy. She was kind enough to give me the recipe & I decided I wanted to make some with peanut butter chips. Here's the funny part --the recipe she gave me is the same recipe that was on my container of marshmallow fluff!! LOL!! So....I guess the recipe isn't a secret, but I'm going to share it anyway!


3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine (1.5 sticks)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 oz chocolate chips
7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
1 tsp vanilla
nuts optional (no nuts for me!)

Combine first 3 ingredients in large pot. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue over medium heat for 5 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches soft ball. Remove from heat & add chocolate chips, stir until melted. Add marshmallow fluff & vanilla, stir until well blended. Pour into greased 13x9 pan. Cool at room temp & cut into squares.

Trust me, this fudge is soooooo good! I used half chocolate chips & half peanut butter chips for this batch --I think next time I will try the caramel chips!

And here's the furry part -- my 15 yr old cat just recently started sleeping with my 8 year old. Here's the funny part --Michael's bed is pretty high. Not bunk-high, but high enough that there is a 2 drawer dresser underneath. He's had this bed for a few years now & Elwood *never* tried to jump up. He figured there were other beds in the house that were easier to get to, lol. BUT in the last week or so he started going up there -- one day I walked in & there he was. I thought someone lifted him up there --but then I saw him jump up on his own. I've also seen him miss, which is just kind of sad. I mean, he IS 15 -- but he's decided he loves it up there & he loves curling up with Michael & obviously Michael doesn't mind. He's like the little engine that

Just finished watching American Idol for the night --who do you all love?? I absolutely loved James last night -- I was not a fan of Adam, who everyone is comparing him to -- but I think James ROCKS! And I never even saw him until last week --I don't get to watch all the time so he was a surprise. I also like Scotty --what a voice & I think he's just 15?!?! Tonight I really liked Lauren & Pia --I'm of course rooting for Naima since she's from Milwaukee, but the other 2 were spectacular! I just love this show -- wasn't too sure I'd watch after Simon left but Steven is freaking HILARIOUS!!! Tonight he said to Randy "I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong" Hahahahaaaaa......that made me laugh :)

Sorry I'm feeling a bit chatty tonight, lol!! Thanks for visiting & reading all my miscellaneous ramblings!

Wowza I love fudge, that looks so yummy! Too funny about the cat all of a sudden getting up on your son's bed. lol Just finished AI and I really liked Thia, Pia and Kendra. Guys, I agree, James was my fav, which is surprising because I didn't like him at first! (Still like Adam's "voice" over James's though) ;) Scotty has an amazing voice too, those were my favs. I also like Casey, Paul and Robbie but wasn't into their performances so much last night.
