Fabulous Fudge--Homemade Gift Idea

Homemade Gifts!

I can remember as a child my mom always trying to rush around and make some holiday treats for her co-workers and our teachers and never really had the opportunity to make my own until this year. Some of my friends that live far away will be getting these treat boxes. I love the design on them!

I'm making quite a few items this year and will be featuring each item on a different day this week! So Stay Tuned for all the recipes!

Monday- Fabulous Fudge

Tuesday- Peanut Butter Dough Balls

Wednesday- Peanut Butter Fudge

Thursday- Hot Cocoa Bread

Friday- Chocolate Andes Mint Cookies

Saturday-- Candied Pecans

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and has all their Christmas shopping done (because I sure don't)! 



 Fabulous Fudge


2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (eagle brand is what we call it down south, whether it is the "brand" or not!)
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (I just added Kosher salt)
1 cup chopped nuts- (This is optional- however, fudge is so much better with nuts! I added Walnuts to mine)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla


In a heavy bottom  pan over low heat, melt all of the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk and the salt. Remove from the heat, stir in the nuts,  and the vanilla. Spread evenly into a foil-lined 8 or 9-inch square pan. Chill for 3 hours, or until firm. Remove the wonderful fudge you just made from the pan and place onto a cutting board. Remove the foil from the bottom of the fudge and cut into squares. Store, covered, in the refrigerator or freezer.

What a great plan! I usually bake for the holidays, but I think I'm going to just enjoy watching you do the baking instead. I will probably make some pb ritz cracker sandwiches dipped in white choc. to give away. One of my all time fav. holiday treats to make are old fashioned orange peels. Let me know if you'd like the recipe.
