Image this.... it is December 23 and a neighbor, friend, parent, or acquaintance gives you a gift you hadn't expected. What do you do? Make them fudge! Okay so it might not work as a gift for everyone but this recipe is DELICIOUS and a big hit so far. Plus it is terribly easy to make and give away because it seems to make enough for a navy fleet.

What You Need:
1/2 cup butter
4 1/2 cups white sugar
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 pound mini marshmallows
2 (6.7 ounce) Hershey bars with almonds
1 (11.5 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips or 2 cups
2 cups almonds, chopped (optional)
Christmas mini m&m’s, for decorating

I know what you are saying, chocolate chips and mini Hershey's? That seems crazy but you need to just go with it because it is beyond delicious, like I said.

There are those of us who don't love nuts of any kind in our fudge (I'm okay with the almonds). You can leave it out and buy plain Hershey's bars if you prefer.

"I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.
I was too."

After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.
As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.
When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.
She chooses poorly.
Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

I really love this series of books, so I thought I'd share it was free.
