Recipe of the Week

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas spent with your family and friends!  Here is a delicious recipe for Fabulous Dairy-Free Fudge that is quick to throw together, especially if you have the sweetened condensed milk substitute already pre-made and in your refrigerator just waiting to be used!

Fabulous Dairy-Free Fudge
1 package Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips or chunks
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk substitute (about half of recipe below)
1 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup colored mini marshmallows

Line an 8 x 8 pan with waxed paper.  In medium microwave safe bowl combine chocolate, sweetened condensed milk substitute, and water.  Microwave for 1 minute, stir, repeat until smooth.  Stir in vanilla, marshmallows, and almonds.  Pour mixture into prepared pan.  Chill fudge about 30 minutes or until firm.  Cut into squares.
