Take a minute and follow on Facebook ??? Pretty, pretty please? With a cherry on top?
I had some leftover sweetened condensed milk from making a cheesecake last week, so I used it to make some fudge.A couple weeks ago, I saw that Ritz has fudge covered Ritz for the holidays. I was thinking I could cover some kind of cracker with fudge. I was looking at the thin wheat crackers before I remembered, "Duh! It was Ritz crackers that were covered. Not thin wheat crackers." Those probably wouldn't work or be very good. So, I searched through my pantry. . . . .
Fudge Covered Pretzels? Nah. Plain chocolate covered would be better.
Fudge with Dried Cranberries and Cheerios? Nah! Nobody like dried cranberries in things.
Fudge covered Graham Crackers? Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!
So, I decided that it would be even better with marshmallows in it.
What you'll need if you'd like to try it.
4 graham crackers (16 sections)--Broken into pieces
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
(I only did half of this because I only had 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk)
Place pieces of graham crackers and mini-marshmallows in the bottom of an oven-proof baking dish. I actually used a foil pie pan. If you're using a baking dish, you'll need to grease it.
Preheat oven to 350.
Pour sweetened condensed milk into medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low until warm--it will be easier to stir and not as thick looking.
Once condensed milk is warm, pour in chocolate chips and continue to heat over medium low heat until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
The next part is the tricky part.
Before the fudge starts to get hard again, pour it over the graham crackers and marshmallows. It will be thick. I just kind of plopped it on top of the graham crackers. Don't worry about smoothing it all out. It will frustrate you! Put it into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Take out and smooth the fudge over the graham crackers and marshmallows. You might need to push the graham crackers down a little bit.
Put back in oven for 5 more minutes.
Take out and smooth again.
Chill in the fridge for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
Plop out of the pan.
Cut into squares or any other geometric shape that the fudge feels like being cut into.
