Rocky Road Fudge

This is my sister Robyn’s rocky road fudge recipe. She has been making this for a long time and usually gifts it at the holidays! Everyone loves it.

Questions that need answering

Why does my sister Robyn only make this rocky road fudge during the holiday season? Is she trying to starve us all? Why can’t we have this fudge year round?

Those are the questions that go through my mind when I receive my tin of holiday treats from her.  What I say though, is, “Thank you!”

As I walk away with the tin clutched in my hands, the questions above start to rattle around in my head again.  Is she trying to starve me?  Does she still love me?  Isn’t she supposed to love me?  I’m her sister.

Then the light bulb goes off over my head and I say to myself, “Why haven’t I made this rocky road fudge myself?

I have the recipe and I’ve been making it ever since.

Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Step four

Now, I pile the rocky road fudge on a plate.

And Christopher bites into a piece of rocky road fudge.

Yummy!  It is so good.

I made Christopher take the rocky road fudge to work in order to keep it away from my thighs.

Okay, okay, I kept four pieces and I ate the four pieces.

In two days.
