I just whipped up two tasty treats for tonight:

Fudge – I took the recipe straight off the back of the jar of marshmellow cream.  Super easy.  I must say I'm a little disgusted at what all is in fudge.  Lots of sugar.  Lots of butter.  No wonder we all gain weight over the holidays.

Muddy Buddies – I got this from a website called Savory Sweet Life – i have ventured around it a bit and there are LOTS of good recipes on there worth trying!

Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside. In a medium microwavable bowl, add chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave on High for 1 minute and stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer and stir mixture until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour sauce over cereal and stir until evenly coated. Spoon half of the mixture in each 1-gallon resealable ziplock bag.
