I just made... WAIT FOR IT...
Pecan Pie, Cheesecake, OMG, give me just a moment... FUDGE!!!!! Yes my friends, those are all in one single treat and I made it, and it is AWESOME!!! Here's the scary part...

IT'S EASY!!!! Now, normally I don't get involved with things that are SO super sweet – but this just had a whole bunch of the things that I really like involved? Like – it's sweet, salty, crisp, creamy, AND crunchy?!? Heck, the crust is made with butter, brown sugar, and saltines.


It's the base layer that gives this the pecan PIE flavor. I HAVE to give a touch of advice – the recipe says to line the baking dish with foil. Yes, you want to be able to lift your cooled fudge out of the dish to cut it into cubes. Foil provides strength, but I found it just would NOT let GO! Use foil, but I really recommend that you use parchment as well on the bottom of the pan– between the crust and the foil? You really don't want to serve bits of metal. Next...


That's the marshmallow joining the rest of the fudge ingredients...

And now the TA DA!!!


While the recipe doesn't say this, after tasting my first piece I've got to insist that you do what I did – add a light sprinkling of sea salt. Sweet is ALWAYS better with a touch of salt.

Trust me.
