Look What you Made me Do!

Well now I've done it. I opened up the Ghirardelli chocolate chips bag without a baking plan. It had something to do with that apron & recipe challenge I did last month. Yesterday, the lot was published, and boy were there some yummy holiday treats in there. I especially liked the leftover Thanksgiving pie and the spice cookie recipes. I entered my Grandpa Patterson's Million Dollar Fudge. Mmmmm-mm! I wonder if it should be renamed "Billion Dollar Fudge," with inflation and all.
Oh, by the way, I made that apron out of a flour sack towel, and that's only half of it (the towel). So, I have a whole other apron, ready to be worn. And I can't get my hubby to wear it. Anyone... anyone?


$1,000,000 Fudge

  • 4-1/2 C. Sugar
  • 1 Can Evaporated Milk
  • 1/8 Pound Butter
  • 1-3/4 C. Miniature Marshmallows
  • 1 lb. Chocolate Stars
  • 12 oz. Chocolate Chips
  • 1 C. Chopped Nuts
  • 1 T. Vanilla
Combine sugar, milk, & butter in a big heavy pan. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from fire & add remaining ingredients and stir only until all are melted. Pour into a buttered 9X13 pan and allow to cool at room temp. (about 2 hours) before cutting. Store cut pieces in refrigerator.

OK, I hate to display my ignorance when the subject involves chocolate, but what are chocolate "stars" and how are they different than "chips"? Please? I gotta know!

Oh, good question from the front row! They're Brach's Candy Co. stars. Here's their description:

BRACH’S® Stars are bite-size pieces of Brach's rich milk chocolate. Made with Brach's real Milk chocolate, sourced from premium Ivory Coast beans for rich chocolate flavor. These are great for snacking and for baking cookies, cakes, and more!
