Easy to make, insanely creamy and rich, and incredibly festive Christmas Fudge!
We’ve moved south for the winter. Or at least for the next two weeks. Hubby is on a job so we packed up the car and the kidlets and road tripped it 4 hours down the road. I wish I could say it was warmer down here. It is warmer, about 10 degrees warmer and I’ll take it, but 30 degrees would be even better.
Since we aren’t home, we haven’t put up a tree or lights or any other smidge of Christmas decor, that’s going to have to wait til we get back to the house. But we are putting Netflix to good use and I’ve got the littles watching Charlie Brown and Mickey Mouse Christmas shows all day long.
Make no mistake, we are in the holiday spirit.
This is my new 2016 Christmas recipe. Last year it was Santa’s Cookies, this year it’s Christmas Fudge. Easy to make, insanely creamy and rich, and incredibly festive!
If you can stand to part with a batch of this yummy stuff, your neighbors would love you forever to find a bag or ribbon-wrapped box on their front porch this year!
But if you can’t stand to part with it, I won’t judge.
