Razzle frats

I bought the ingredients. I rechecked the recipe on line and it didn't get glowing reviews. Who needs over sweet fudge that won't set. My desire to have my own homemade goodies is quickly dwindling.

I have a can of sweetened condensed milk (300g) and a package ( 8 squares ) of semi-sweet chocolate. Who has an easy recipe. Note the word easy.

Good thing I didn't rush on the second recipe I was considering.

So far the shortbread is still a possibility.

*major sigh*

Oooh no! Nothing worse than having plans that don't quite work. I once tried to make truffles. Note to the world - truffles/mid-Summer Australia - do not mix!

I'm trying to convince myself that that is a good reason for cold weather. It isn't working.

1.Open the can of condensed milk.
2.Take a spoon.
3.Eat it curled up on the couch with a good book ;)

Hmmmm....well, if you can get your hands on more chocolate (and trade the milk for powdered sugar):

Beat together 1 lb. confectioner's
(powdered) sugar and two eggs.

Melt 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate and 1 c. butter. Add to sugar/egg mixture with 1 t. vanilla and beat well. Add chopped nuts if desired. Pour into a greased pan and refrigerate.

I know this uses raw eggs...but everyone I know makes this every year and no issues yet!

That just curled my teeth Jayne. *grin*

Copied and saved, thanks Kathleen.

Now I just need to get ambitious again.

I'm with Jayne. I just love eating condensed milk. The recipes I'm thinking of require more ingredients. Rocky Road comes to mind for the chocolate.
