Juiciness with his new fleece scarf before heading out for the day.
Our book was an old favorite, Frosty the Snowman. We went to our local Christmas parade for a short bit, but it was rainy and not the most pleasant day. We postponed ice skating due to other family obligations, but will do it in the near future.
Sassyfras is in love with her new fleece scarf!
We spent the day making some rocky road fudge, something my grandmother made each Christmas. We also did one snowman craft that we didn't get to on our snowman day.
Rocky Road Fudge
12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons butter
2 cups dry roasted, lightly salted peanuts
10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
My grandmother never had a microwave and used a double boiler to melt the chocolate, but I've been using the microwave without any trouble for years. Use a large microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate, condensed milk, and butter together, 30 seconds-1 minute at a time. Once melted stir in peanuts and marshmallows. Pour into a wax paper lined 13x9 pan and put in the fridge until firm. Cut into small squares, devour with a glass of milk.
