Good Morning! I know it’s crunch time to Christmas to get your baking done so, you are going to see more posts than usual from me this week, as I share some of my favorite Holiday recipes.
This morning I am sharing my absolute favorite fudge recipe that I got from a woman whom I’ve never even met. But she signed the email with the recipe as “Kelly”. I used to work with a guy named Sean 10 years ago…and in fact, I don’t remember Sean’s last name even. It doesn’t matter. The story goes, he brought in some fudge that his mother-in-law made, and I told him that it was the best fudge I had ever had and could he possibly get me the recipe. I’m pushy like that when it comes to good recipes. About a day later I got an email from his mother in law, “Kelly”, and in it she said she gets requests for this recipe every year at Christmas, but she only gives it out to the first three people who ask for it, and I was the first. My pushiness pays off! So, I am happy to share it with all of you. Fudge is definitely one of my holiday favorite treats, because growing up, my mom only made it at Christmas time. I thought it was the best thing ever!
Here is page 2 of the actual email that I printed from Kelly that contains the recipe. The only thing I change is, sometimes I will substitute the 25 large marshmallows with 3 cups of the mini marshmallows. And like Kelly, I use HERSHEY chocolate for the milk chocolate, and Ghiradelli for the semi-sweet. I also will sometimes split this batch up into two 9×9 pans versus one 9×13 pan and sprinkle sea salt on top of one of the pans. This yields a lot of fudge! I wish I knew the story behind where Kelly got this and why it’s called Rose Farm Road. I googled it and nothing comes up. I guess since I never met Kelly and barely remember Sean I will never know (and no offense to Sean, I blame it on my old age). But I thank them both for sharing this recipe because now it’s a little bit of holiday cheer that we can all enjoy! 🙂
