Chocolate … the panacea of the masses! The very word is
soothing to the spirit. On a cold winter’s night there’s nothing
like wrapping your hands around a mug of steaming hot chocolate,
the fragrance drifting upward on the trails of steam. Conversely,
on a hot summer day, there’s nothing like a trip to the local
ice cream store for a hot fudge sundae, the combination of hot
and cold a glorious celebration of the tongue. But when
I REALLY want chocolate, I grab my favorite microwave safe
bowl, pour in a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips, a 6 ounce
package of butterscotch chips, and one 14 ounce can of sweetened
condensed milk. Stir it up a bit and pop it in the microwave
for about a minute and a half or until the chips are melted. Remove
from the microwave, stir vigorously, add a teaspoon of vanilla
and a handful of nuts. Pour it into an 8 x 8 pan and allow to cool.
Instant melt-in-your-mouth fudge. Ah, bliss!
