• There will be no trash pickup in Honolulu and landfills will be closed on Christmas Day. A listing posted Sunday was incorrect because of a source error.

Information in an opinion piece posted Sunday contained incorrect information.

• The Lunatic Fudge recipe that appeared in a Taste story posted Dec. 18 contained an error in the amount of evaporated milk. Here is the complete, corrected recipe:

Lunatic Fudge

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine (1/2 stick)
  • 2 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk (or 5-ounce can)
  • 10 to 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 to 7 ounces marshmallow creme or 2 cups mini-marshmallows
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Prepare 9-by-9-inch pan.

Place flavor chips, vanilla, and nuts into a 3-quart saucepan or Pyrex glass dish and set aside. Set butter aside to warm. Heat milk over medium heat until warm, then add sugar. Bring to a rolling boil over medium high while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Add marshmallow creme. Bring back to a boil for 5 full minutes by the clock (start once the boil resumes).

The mixture will start to turn brown during the boil. If you get brown flakes in the mixture, turn down the heat a little. Remove from heat, mix in butter, and pour hot mixture over chips, vanilla, and nuts without scraping the sides of the hot saucepan.

Mix thoroughly and pour into prepared pan. Cool at room temperature. Remove from pan, remove foil, cut into squares. Store in airtight container.
