Holidays are all about family, friends, and tradition. Today, Beate from Galactopdx is hosting this #SundaySupper “Home for the Holidays” event. We are all sharing recipes and traditions from our families.
In my family we have a tradition of making fudge every Christmas Eve. We don’t make it any other day of the year, just the 24th. It has to be one of my all time favorite holiday treats. You can often find me sneaking pieces Christmas morning while we are opening presents. This is the recipe we have been making in my family forever. I believe it was originally from the back of the marshmallow fluff jar, but I am not completely sure. You can easily add nuts if that is your thing, but I am a purist and like it without.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and enjoy your time with family and friends. I am taking a couple days off from the blog, but will be back with lots of appetizer ideas for your New Years parties.

- 1 jar marshmallow fluff
- 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Butter or grease a 9x13 inch pan. Set aside.
