Winner #1 – Santa Claus is COMING!

SantaClausIsComing_VJSummersThis one was tough! I mean, I’m reading your traditions and getting all teary… Sheesh! Luckily, I put the onus on Old Dude, and the man is guided by his stomach. So, for the copy of Santa Claus is Coming – out 12/15,  Old Dude insists on Retta’s fudge recipe! Which I’m re-posting here:


2 tablespoons lowfat Butter
2/3 Cup evaporated skim milk
2½ cups Sugar
12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
2½ ounce baby food prunes
7 ounce jar marshmallow cream
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with waxed paper and set aside. In a large saucepan, melt Butter. Stir in milk and sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and gradually stir in chocolate chips Add prunes, marshmallow cream, walnuts and vanilla. Pour into pan and chill. Cut into 48 pieces when firm. Yields 48 pieces
105 calories per piece with nuts 3Grams fat without nuts 2.5 per piece

So, Retta, I’m gonna try and hunt you down via email, but if you don’t hear from me by Sunday, when the book is out, STALK ME!!!

Congratulations, and thanks to all of you who participated. I’m gonna be a cooking fool for the next two weeks – all while watching A Christmas Story!
