Cooking with Kelly: Holiday cookie party

As part of this year's Beta Sigma get together, we did a little cookie swap. While we attempted three types of tasty treats, only two turned out. Hey, no one's perfect.

So tonight, let me highlight this delicious and ridiculously simple fudge-type thing we made. Now let me tell you, we only made it because the title to the recipe was meltaway nut log. It just sounded funny.

This can all be made in the microwave too in one large bowl and then poured out onto wax paper, creating minimum mess. Here's how you do it:

1 six-ounce bag of semi-sweet chips
1 six-ounce bag of butterscotch chips
1 can of fudge or chocolate icing
2 cups marshmallows
1 and a 1/3 cups nuts, any kind

Melt the chips together in the microwave, stirring frequently. Stir in icing until fully incorporated. Pour out the mixture onto four separate pieces of wax paper, then add a half cup of marshmallows and 1/3 cup of the nuts to each mixture, then use the wax paper to mix the ingredients into the chocolate. Make each mixture into a log, about eight inches long, and refrigerate for three hours or until hard before slicing.

I made a slideshow of our adventure. The end result was very tasty with not a lot of mess or energy. Yay for holiday spirit!

I'm sorry. We MUST come up with a new name for it, because I just can't say it without giggling! I know, I know... I should be more of an adult, but I just can't!

Thanks for the recipe!
