Every year at this time there's a chocolate festival up in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. And every year I say I'm going to go but I never do. It sounds like the perfect event for a chocolate lover--just 10 dollars gets you access to lots of chocolate goodies to sample and take home. But then I start thinking with my head instead of my stomach. It's a long trip, it's too cold to get out, WD doesn't have a huge sweet tooth like I do so I doubt he would enjoy it very much, and it could get expensive if we decided to stay overnight with hotel rooms, restaurants, gas money, etc.

So I guess I'll just stay home again this year and eat fudge. Not a bad trade off. Especially when it's Kraft's famous original fantasy fudge. Three pounds of soft, creamy, chocolaty goodness.

Fantasy Fudge (from

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 oz pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
7 oz jar Kraft marshmallow creme
1 cup nuts (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Microwave method:
Microwave margarine in 4-quart microwave-safe bowl on high (100%) 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well. Microwave on high 5 minutes or until mixture begins to boil, stirring after 3 minutes. Mix well; scrape bowl. Continue microwaving on high 5-1/2 minutes; stir after 3 minutes. Stir in chips until melted. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cool at room temperature; cut into squares.
