SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Anxiety, panic, and stress -- you can smell them in the air.

It’s almost finals week once again and thousands of students have begun the ritual colloquially known as “freaking out.”

There are only two definite ways to overcome all the symptoms of “freaking out.” The first is to get your work done early, so you never get swamped (I know -- it’s hard for me not to laugh at the thought as well).

The second is to beat the freak out is plain old denial. That’s right — just pretend like nothing’s wrong.

Pretend like you have no exams, no papers and no worries. Pretend it’s winter break. And with the help of this Christmas fudge recipe, you’ll be believing you’re at home with no worries in no time.

Mama’s Christmas Fudge


2 1⁄2 cups sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cups butter
2/3 cups evaporated milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 jar marshmallow cream — 7 ounces
1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla


Mix sugar, salt, milk, and butter in a glass bowl. Microwave on high for three minutes (uncovered). Stir. Microwave on high for seven minutes. Remove from microwave and mix, adding chips, vanilla, and marshmallow cream — in that order. Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan. Cut within 45-60 minutes. You’re done!
