Snapshot: Mel's fudge
After beholding the majesty of Stevie Treichel's waffle BLT, Mel Lowery was moved to send in a photo of her famous homemade fudge. She makes it every holiday season to take to parties and to give as gifts. Her secret is that it is, as she says, the "easiest fudge in history." It's made with chocolate chips, a pinch of salt, vanilla extract and low-fat evaporated milk. Writes Lowery: "Full-fat won't set, non-fat is just gross."
When she's not making fudge or homemade peach pie, Lowery is one of the webmasters at www.true-blood.net.
