More Fudge Fun or Fiascos...

If you've been reading this blog a while, you know that I had a few fudge candy problems this summer. Apparently they carried over into the winter also! The top is a scanned picture from the December 2006 Good Housekeeping. I followed the directions, and - the marshmallows MELTED into the fudge - hence the marbled look of my picture. So - I pulled out some holiday marshmallows and tried to disguise mine. I had doubled the recipe and wanted to have something to show for all those ingredients. I will be giving this to friends as one of my cookies. Hopefully the other ones will turn out ok.

Not crazy about this recipe, but it does seem to taste good.

rocky road fudge, or Marbled Slab Fudge Amy Style
1 package (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 tablespoon margarine
1 package miniature marshmallows (10.5 oz.) (I didn't use 2x this when doubling as it seemed like too many.

Line 9x9 pan with plastic wrap.
In big saucepan, combine chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and margarine. Cook over medium heat 2 - 3 minutes or just until ingredients are melted, strring constantly. Remove from heat. (OK, this is clearly where I went wrong - but I honestly pulled it off right as everything was melted. If I made this again I would use a double boiler and not try to double it.)
Stir marshmallows into fudge mixture. Pour into lined pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours. Store in refrigerator. This recipe says it makes 36, but only if you can cut like 1/2 inch pieces... Doubling it made about 45.
