Have you guys been watching Scandal??

Okay.  It’s pretty much like the greatest show ever.  It’s so great, in fact, that I decided at the beginning of this season that I wanted to celebrate the premier and I got sushi and wine.  Sushi + wine + Scandal = The Greatest Thursday Night Ever.

It’s sooooooo good, that I asked my dear sweet loving husband who has never watched an episode of Scandal before to watch the premiere with me.  It’s sooooo good, that I had him watch the season finale of last season, pausing like every two minutes so that I could give him the back stories on all the characters so that he would be pumped for the season premire.

And he was!

But!!  Now I have to wait for him to watch it all the time!  #firstworldproblems right?

So literally each Friday morning when I go to work out and want to watch the brand spanking new Scandal while I do it (because seriously, work outs watching my shows while Quinn watches something educational and Piper naps is my HAPPY time), I get slapped in the face with the reality that I can’t watch it without Nathan.

Damn you, Scandal and your totally addictive ways!

Anyway.

The perfect way to get over the fact that you need to wait 8 hours to watch Scandal is by making some easy fudge.  And when I say easy, I mean, seriously easy.  Like fool proof.

I was going for a fun hot cocoa fudge with this, and this totally tastes like a nice hot cup of hot cocoa.  There is some cocoa powder mixed in, which deepens the chocolate flavor and gives it that characteristic hot cocoa taste.  Then you throw the marshmallow bits on top, and it really seals the deal.

Almost enough to make me forget how many more hours ’til Scandal.

Hot Cocoa Fudge

Ingredients

  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 TBSP cocoa powder
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 cup marshmallow bits

  1. Line a 9 by 9 inch pan with aluminum foil.

  3. Stir in the chocolate chips and stir consistently until well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour into the pan, and add the marshmallow bits, gently pressing them into the fudge. (You may not need all of them.)
  5. Refrigerate for at least four hours, covered, before removing the fudge from the pan by lifting the aluminum foil, peeling it off the fudge, and cutting the fudge to serve.

      If I need a candy thermometer, I’m much less likely to make the recipe . . . :) But I have found that 3 cups of chips + 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk is a winning combination.

    I love happy time, i.e. when the kids are occupied and I can Netflix binge! Scandal is an excellent choice.
    This fudge is also an excellent choice! I love this fudge. It’s so what my holiday season needs!

    Your Cocoa Fudge recipe looks amazing and like that it’s so easy to make but I haven’t been able to find the marshmallow bits. I looked high and low down the baking isle at WalMart but all they had was just the regular marshmallows. I even asked the lady that was working on that isle where they may be at and she hadn’t a clue as to what I was talking about.
    Was wondering what grocery did you find your mallow bits at?

      Thanks Colleen! I just get mine at the regular supermarket. And you can find them at Target too. Sometimes they are more with the ice cream toppings, like the fudge and the caramel sauce.
