Recipe Day

It's Tuesday and my day to share some recipes, hope you enjoy this one!

I got this recipe from my friends at the Wicked Writers chat group...

Macadamia Nut Fudge

8 TBS (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut up
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (about 4 ounces)
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups sugar
1 5-ounce can evaporated milk
12 large marshmallows

Butter an 8inch square baking pan. Line the bottom of the pan with foil.

In a large bowl, combine butter, chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, unsweetened chocolate, and vanilla.
Attach a candy thermometer to a medium saucepan. Add the sugar, evaporated milk, and the marshmallows. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 238 degrees F.

Pour the hot mixture into the bowl and let stand for 30 minutes. Stir until the mixture begins to thicken, about 1 minute. Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Let stand until completely cooled. Cover with foil and let stand overnight to allow flavors to mellow.

Invert the fudge and remove the foil. Re-invert and cut into squares. Store the fudge at room temperature in an airtight container.

Makes about 2 pounds

Enjoy !
