{the best} Fudge Recipe!

Here is MY favorite treat for Christmastime!!!


Yes, this is truly THE BEST fudge I have EVER tasted! It is my Grandma's recipe and it is so moist and just melts in your mouth!!

Do you want the recipe????

Nah... I'll just keep it for myself.

Wait... OK.. since it's ALMOST Christmas {3 days!} I'll give it to you.



Ok GO!

In a heavy kettle, combine 4 1/2 cups of white sugar, 1 large sego milk, 1/2 square butter.

Stir and begin to cook over medium heat - DO NOT COOK TO HOT!

When it has a rolling boil, start timing and stir for 6 minutes and 30 seconds.  *This is VERY IMPORTANT that you stir for exactly 6 min and 30 sec or it will NOT turn out right!*

Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir.

Add 1 large Hershey's milk chocolate bar, 12 oz semi sweet chocolate, and 1 large package mini marshmallows. Stir until well mixed.

You may add walnuts or pecans if desired. {I like just plain fudge better.}

Pour  out and spread into a buttered pyrex pan.

Wait till it sets up to eat.

Then ration out the fudge or you'll eat the whole pan! SO YUMMY!!!

Caramels and toffee to come... :)

Eiffel Tower Necklace

I made this necklace for a Christmas present this year and it turned out adorable! Too bad I gave it away ;)

They were just some charms from Michaels (gotta love that place) and a chain.  with some pliers I made a little strip of chain going down from the middle of the actual chain. Then added the charms in this order: The world, crystal, discover washer, crystal, and at the end, the Eiffel Tower.

Super cute and fairly quick to make!
 And with those charms came a camera charm... I just added that to a chain for me... since I LOVE photography. :)

I forgot one.. I made one of these: OWL NECKLACE, looks exactly like the one at the store ;)

These are super easy and inexpensive Christmas gifts so hurry and head on over to Michaels before they run out! :)
