.:other than cupcakes:.

One thing that I loveee to splurge on is books especially books on baking. And one type of book that I love to buy is books on baking for kids as its recipe and process is sooo simple and easy to do. If you want to prepare quick and easy or last minutes treats or desserts, I think this the kind of book you should search for. One of my favourite book is this, Willian Sonoma - Sweet Treats. So last sunday I decided to bake something other than cupcakes. Earlier I had ordered some homemade marshmallow, and most importantly its HALAL with JAKIM certificate. I bought it from Mama Fuza Marshmallow. I was looking for something that can use the marshmallow that I bought. After browsing through the book, I decide to do Rocky Road Fudge. It is just super duper easy. It's definitely for chocolate lover.

(adapted from William Sonoma - Sweet Treats)

1/2 tsp vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallow
2 cups coarsely chopped walnut
2 cups  semisweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use less than 3/4 can)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Line an 8" square baking pan with the aluminum foil, gently pressing the foil into the corners and letting the foil hang over the sides.

2. Soak a paper towel with the vegetable oil and use it to rub over the foil.

3. Set aside 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup marshmallows.

4. Put the chocolate chips and condensed milk in to the bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir with the spatula until all chocalte are melted. (Since I don't have a microwave, I use double-boil method.

5. Then gently stir in the vanilla extract, marshmallows and walnuts in to the chocolate mixture.

6. Then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth it out evenly and smooth the top.

7. Sprinkle the fudge with the reserved walnuts and marshmallows and gently pressed them into the surface.

8. Cover the pans with the cling wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minuted.

9. Lift the foil to remove the fudge from the pan and peel away the foil. Cut the fudge into 16 pieces.
