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!
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? Why have I been relying on Robyn to make it? Is she hoarding the recipe?”
Then a brighter bulb goes off over my head! I run over to my recipe book and rifle through it.
There! THERE! I see it! I have the recipe for Robyn’s rocky road fudge.
Then I realize that Robyn does love me: she gave me this recipe years ago.
But why haven’t I made it? Perhaps because I was/am afraid of what would happen if I do.
I’d eat the whole darned batch all by myself. And Lainey wouldn’t be happy. At least, Lainey’s thighs wouldn’t be happy.
Why am I talking about myself in the third person?

- Rocky road fudge taken out of the fridge and placed on a wooden board
- Fudge cut into squares

- Grease 8 x 8 glass dish and line it with plastic wrap
- Place fudge in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours

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.
