Here's my contribution to the Holly Day Blog Hop:

Rocky Road Fudge

I love this easy fudge recipe (no candy thermometer needed) passed to me by my mother. It's my "go-to" dessert for any get together, the first thing my husband asks for at the beginning of the holiday season and, thanks to this blog, I'm eating a piece now!

What you'll need:
12 oz package of semi sweet choc chips

14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons butter, margarine or other butter spread

2 cups dry roasted peanuts --I love the taste of salty peanuts and chocolate, but not too salty, so I do 1 cup salted, 1 cup unsalted.

10.5 oz package of mini marshmallows

In large bowl, combine peanuts and marshmallows. In sauce pan, melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk and butter over medium-low heat until smooth. Remove chocolate from burner and pour over marshmallow/peanut mixture. Mix well. Spread into a wax paper lined 13x9" pan. Chill 2 hours. Cut into squares (makes about 40 squares...or 4 big ones!)

Let me know how yours turns out! ~Jocelyn
