Today was one of my most favorite days of first grade. Why you may ask? We made FUDGE! We are learning the _dge spelling this week, and as a way of reinforcing this we blended some _dge words and then made the fudge. I had a few children help put the ingredients together. While we were making it I called on different children to spell _dge words. By the end most children could spell fudge.

Parents, ask your child if they still remember how to spell that tricky, but delicious word!

I know, no hats in school. But it was so stinkin' cute, I had to let that rule slide. Just for today...

He couldn't get enough of the fudge. He just sat, smelled, and watched it cool. Such a funny boy!

Here's my recipe. Give it a try!

1 cup of butter (2 cubes)
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
4 ½ cups sugar
2 bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine butter, milk, and sugar in an electric skillet; bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring. Stir in chocolate until melted. Add marshmallow fluff and vanilla. Mix until blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let cool and enjoy!
