    easy fudge recipe without marshmallow creme?

    Hi all, I'm feeling the need to do just a little more holiday baking this weekend. I want to try some fudge but don't want a big jar of marshmallow creme, so I can just make a small batch, does anyone have a good tried and true recipe with just marshmallows or something? I'd like to try the cinnamon fudge one, or can I just use marshmallows instead?
    Also, I want to make some new fun cookies that have a fun shape or something. I know there's a million recipes but I'm not feeling any inspiration, anyone have a great one they've made this week?
    Happy Holidays all-

    There are variations like Choc-PB fudge I may try too.

    I made 14 batches of fudge yesterday using the recipe from Nestles from the Very Best Baking site.
    Easy and uses marshmallows.

    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

    What To Do:* Place chocolate chips and peanut butter into top of double boiler. *
    Pour water into bottom boiler.*

    Lightly grease 8"x8' sqaure pan.
    Break chocolate into pieces and place in a large saucepan with the butter and sweetened condensed milk. Heat gently, sitrring until the chocolate and butter melt and the mixture is smooth. Do not allow to boil.
    Remove the pan from the heat. Beat in the vanilla, then beat the mixture a few minutes until thickened. Pour into prepared pan and level the top.

    Tip: Don't use milk chocolate as the results will be too sticky.

    We always had the Hershey's fudge growing up. Thanks for the idea. I think I'll make some today.
    Hershey’s Chocolate Fudge
    Ingredients: 3 cup sugar
    2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
    1/4 t salt
    1-1/2 cup whole milk
    4 T spoon butter
    1 t sprron vanilla
    1 cup chopped pecans (walnuts or other nuts) Cooking Instructions: Items needed: One large spoon, one strong arm and a comfortable chair.

    Mix sugar cocoa & salt in 3 quart pan (or larger). Add milk, heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Lower heat to medium. Cook to soft ball stage, stirring occasionally (drop small amount into cup of cold water, when you can pick it up and can roll it around in fingers it is ready) or you can use a candy thermometer
    Fill sink with about three inches of cold water. When fudge is cooked to soft ball stage, add butter and stir in. Set pan in sink of cold water, stirring occasionally until cool enough to put finger in. Remove pan from water, add vanilla and beat until smooth and ready for butter flat pan. Add pecans just before pouring into pan.

    When beating it you can tell it is almost ready when it starts to have satin finish. from this point need to work fast so it will not get too stiff to pour into pan.
