Delightful Popovers for Two

1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.Let milk and egg stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. (Or you can do like I do and warm the milk in the microwave and run warm water over the egg for a few minutes.)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl; beat just until smooth. Pour into four greased 6-oz. (or 8 2-oz.)custard cups; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (do not open door). Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until popovers are deep golden brown (do not under bake). Serve warm.

3 minute microwave fudge

Now, I have never made fudge before, but I've always heard that it is a difficult and delicate process. This was SO not that. It took like 5 minutes to make. One minute to dump everything into a bowl, 3 minutes to heat it and 1 more minute to spread it out in the pan. The best part is that it is awesome fudge!! Or at least I think so. ;)

2 packages (11.5 or 12 oz package) of choc chips (1 milk chocolate, 1 dark or semi sweet chocolate)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 or 16 oz)
3 tables spoons of butter

combine all three ingredients in a microwaveable bowl.
microwave on high for 3 minutes.
stir everything up.

Scoop everything out into a 9x9 pan and smoosh it flat. Let it cool and enjoy.

Alternatively, you could add a cup of chunky peanut butter... it's good.
