Turnin' on the Lite - mrtl style
I've been totally slacking here. The beef recipe (mom's crab soup) never got posted. I think she made off with it, because I can't find it anywhere. Sorry!
Let me make it up to you. Make something lite for dinner, then balance it out with this:
Bailey's Irish Cream Fudge
4½ cups sugar
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
½ lb. butter
2 pkgs. (12 oz. each) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg. (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 jars (7 oz. each) marshmallow cream
2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
In a large bowl, add chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla, Bailey's Irish Cream and nuts. Set aside.
Heat butter, sugar and milk to a boil, reduce heat and cook slowly for 11 minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour milk mixture over the ingredients in bowl and stir slowly to blend. DO NOT USE A MIXER.
Pour fudge into a buttered 9x13-inch pan and chill. When fudge is cold, cut into uniform pieces. (Fudge will stay soft, and not completely harden.) (I've put them in those little cake/bread tins sprayed with Pam, and it's come out fine. Also, lining the 9x13 with foil and spraying works fine, too.)
Makes approximately 5 pounds.
