Goodies for the Office

Soccer Dad asked me to make some goodies to bring to his office on the day before Thanksgiving, so I began my holiday baking earlier than usual. I made a double batch of Tollhouse cookies (but tripled the chips - you do realize that the dough is merely to hold together the chocolate, right?), some cinnamon-sugar knots, which I accidentally overcooked, and some fudge. Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge.

From Weight Watchers.

Soccer Dad was asked if it was a WW recipe, and he answered, "Are you kidding me? Not this stuff!" Poor dear, he had to admit his mistake today at work.

I decided to post the recipe here in case anyone wants to make some DEE-lish-us fudge that absolutely does not taste low-fat. Points value on this (if you're keeping track) is only two, and there are 36 sservings to this recipe. Though the piece of fudge comes out looking small, it packs a whallop of flavor, and if you're used to the WW points system anyway, it will wind up being enough. (I can't eat more than one serving of this at a time because it's so incredibly sweet.)


  • 1 2/3 cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup fat-free evaporated milk (one 12 ounce can gives you enough for two batches)

  • 2 TBSP reduced-calorie margarine

  • 12 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups) (I used chocolate chips)

  • 14 large marshmallows


  1. Coat an 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray.

  2. Stir together sugar, evaporated milk, and margarine. Bring to a boil in a saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

  3. Stir in chocolate and marshmallows. Remove from heat and stif until smooth.

  4. Pour into pan and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Cut into 36 squares and serve. (Leave fudge in refrigerator or freezer for a firmer consistency.)

And that's it! This is very easy to do, and the girls helped me out with stirring and pouring things into the pot. As a matter of fact, as long as your children know kitchen safety, this is really something they can do almost completely by themselves.
