Nestle Very Best Fudge

So far, I'm 0 for 2 for trick-or-treaters on Halloween. This year's reason for no visitors was your typical Seattle reason: rain. And lots of it. I'm talking torrential downpour all. day. So of course no one went out trick-or-treating. So I did the same thing I did last year: pulled out the Snickers bars for my dad and started searching for recipes that use either Twix, Milky Way, or M&Ms. I decided to stick with M&Ms since I used the other two last year.

The decision for what to make turned out to be easier than I was expecting it to be. I had in my pantry a can of Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk, purchased with canned pumpkin (which I used for the muffins) and a coupon. So I went to the Nestle recipes site and started searching for recipes that used evaporated milk. I decided to focus on fudge since I could easily add M&Ms to them instead of nuts. I ended up only having one option, though, since my can of milk was a 12 oz (either because of coupon restrictions or because it was the only size I found) and just about all the other recipes called for a 5 oz can.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I am a creature of habit, especially when it comes to meals. I have the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day and my dinner choices are the same dozen or so meals. I try and have a little variety in breakfast though, eating something different on the weekends than I do during the week. On Saturdays I have an Eggo breakfast sandwich since I do my grocery shopping shortly after. Sundays are a little different: when I was going to church I didn't have anything since my carpool stayed after mass for coffee hour, complete with pastries. After I decided to take a break from church, I needed a Sunday breakfast. For a while I was eating Pop-Tarts and scones. But I finally finished them so I turned to my Breakfast Foods board on Pinterest. Since it's still fall and I was in the mood for muffins, I decided on Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins from The Girl Who Ate Everything.
