Skinny Fudge

Oh my goodness, you guys...these are so good!  This recipe for Weight Watcher's Fudge popped up on my Pinterest newsfeed the other day, and when I looked at the recipe, I was shocked that I actually had all the ingredients on hand--including items that I usually never have in my kitchen (evaporated milk and marshmallows).  I figured it was a sign from above telling me to make the fudge right that second.  So of course I did, and then fell into a state of fudgy bliss.  While these are little higher in sugar than my normal fare, this fudge is totally worth it!  I did alter the original recipe a little (less sugar, added vanilla & salt), but it's all for the better, I like to think. Also, the original recipe called for cutting the fudge into 36 teeny tiny squares to make it lower calorie, but I prefer normal serving sizes, so I made my servings bigger by cutting it into only 25 squares.  It's still only 137 decadent calories a piece.
