I gotta say it was divine.
I asked him if I could share his recipe with you all for Tasty Tuesday and he flatly denied me.
Me! His crippled mother.
Oh well. He wanted to keep his recipe a secret, so I searched the web and found another with a little more kick. And his fudge did make me feel better.
Spicy and Sweet Jalapeño Fudge
3 cups sugar
¾ cups margarine
5 oz. evaporated milk
12 squares Baker’s Semi-Sweet chocolate, chopped
7 oz. Puffed Marshmallow Crème
1 tsp of vanilla
5-10 pickled jalapeño pepper rings
1 tsp of cinnamon
In blender, mix the jalapeño peppers until fine.
Line a 9-inch square pan with foil.
In a large saucepan, bring sugar, butter and milk to full rolling boil on medium heat and keep boiling for 4 minutes while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add chocolate and marshmallow crème, stir until melted. Stir in vanilla and jalapeño peppers. Pour into 9-inch pan. Sprinkle cinnamon across the top. Cut into squares once cooled.
