Ok, I've added all these awesome recipes and the ideas posted, all the way up to adamsgma's bark suggestions. You guys are wonderful to share. We love it!!

Now, that fudge, marshmallow, caramel monstrosity that cupcakeatheart told us about... GIRLFRIEND... there are not words to describe how good that sounds. For the google doc I nicknamed your creation "Triple Threat" because that's exactly what it is. If you do not like that name, please tell me. I just wanted to give it a name for the doc so we had something to refer to it as! Or if you come up with something else that you like better, just tell me and I'll change it immediately. I just thought that title perfectly described what it is! And, may I add... I both love and loathe you for planting that seed in my head. I think Iwant to try it with the middle layer being home made marshmallow! And I make very delicious home made caramel, so with the awesome fudge recipes shared here... I'm pretty sure this will be the most wonderful thing I've ever eaten! icon_biggrin.gif

Maaan, I trusted you to keep that information just between you and me!! How COULD you!? It's true! My name is Melissa... I'm addicted to recipes. Some days while my kids are sleeping, I pour out all the little cards on the bed and roll around in them. You really don't want to know what happens after that!

YAY!! I'm glad you like that. Sometimes ya gotta be careful, you don't want to step on toes, but I figured I could at least call it that until you officially picked a name! icon_lol.gif

I think it's perfect because you know it IS a triple threat. And I think the peanut butter fudge idea sounds awesome too! mmmmmmmm

Cinnamon-Chocolate Fudge!

With the Holidays fast approaching its time to start thinking about your favorite Holiday goodies!
I tried this new fudge recipe and it was delicious!
Its very melt in your mouth- creamy goodness.
Its also super simple.

Ingredients
Butter, for greasing the pan
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound (about 2 cups) bittersweet (60 percent cocoa) chocolate chips (recommended: Ghiradelli) see Cook's Note
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature
Kosher or flake salt, optional
Note::::I used the bittersweet chocolate
And also sprinkled some of the flake sea salt on a few rows of the fudge it was very good both ways!
Directions
Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 by 8-inch baking pan. Line the pan with a sheet of parchment paper, about 14-inches long and 7-inches wide, allowing the excess to overhang the sides. Set aside
In a medium glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the condensed milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir in the chocolate chips and butter. Put the bowl on a saucepan of barely simmering water and mix until the chocolate chips have melted and the mixture is smooth, about 6 to 8 minutes (mixture will be thick). Using spatula, scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
Run a warm knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the fudge. Remove the fudge to a cutting board. Peel off the parchment paper and cut the fudge into 1-inch pieces. Store refrigerated in an airtight container or freeze.
Cook's Note: The fudge can also be made using 1 pound (about 2 1/2 cups) of semisweet chocolate chips. I suggest using the bittersweet the flavor is Amazing!

This sounds odd, but the combination of sweet and salty is really delicious. Even people who don't like white chocolate scarf these up. And very easy to make (just don't overheat your chocolate, and don't substitute white chocolate chips for the baking chocolate--they're different animals).

White Chocolate Candy Cookies

Ingredients:
1 lb. white baking chocolate
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup peanut butter cap'n crunch
1 cup colored miniature marshmallows (use regular if you can't find colored)
1 12 oz jar roasted peanuts

Directions:
Gently melt chocolate over double boiler
Toss all dry ingredients together in large bowl. Pour chocolate over mix and stir with a spatula. Drop by tsp onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Let chocolate set and enjoy.

Okay I have a couple favorites I make every year and everyone nuts over them! I have pics of a batch I made of the Snickers.......

"SNICKERS" (MOCK RECIPE)

1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups salted peanuts, chopped
1 (14 ounce) package caramels
1/4 cup whipping cream

1-Melt together 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips, and 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter then spread on bottom of 9 X 13 cake pan lined with parchment (only bottom not the sides) Put in refrigerator to set up while next layer is prepared.
2- Boil 1/4 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup evaporated milk together for 5 minutes.

4- Pour over first layer that was chilling then place back in fridge.
5- On low-med melt 14 ounces of caramels with 1/4 cup whipping creme until smooth (this takes awhile but be patient or your caramel will go hard if it gets too hot) then pour over second layer that is chilling (do this quickly it sets up fast on chilled nougat layer- place back in fridge.
6- Melt together 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips, and 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter then spread on the top of of third layer in the pan.
7- Return to chill until set up.
