so although i really wanted to start 2013 off with a healthy treat...i haven't gotten to that yet!...so you get a whole lotta fudge to kick off the year....
this is from the holiday season and made for all the kid's teachers....i think i was making fudge every other nite for all of December!...good thing they were all really simple to make....
cranberry: 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk, heat on stove top and add 1 bag of white chocolate chips (12 ounces), and dried cranberries (add about 1/2 cup of dried cranberries in a food processor and chop nice and fine); add cranberries to fudge while it's still warm, pour into 8X8 baking pan, let harden and cut into shapes.
lemon: super simple, 1 can of store bought lemon frosting added to 1 package of melted white chocolate chips (12 ounces); add to pan and let set and cut
cinnamon: 1 can of store bought vanilla frosting to 1 bag of cinnamon chips
red velvet: 1 can of store bought chocolate frosting, 1 bag of chocolate chips, 2 tablespoonfuls of red coloring gel (ok yeah it's really just chocolate fudge, but i cheated and called it red velvet!)
pumpkin spice: 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces), heat and add 1 bag of pumpkin spice hershey's kisses (unwrapping them was the longest part!)
mint chocolate: 1 can of store bought chocolate frosting to 1 bag of mint chocolate chips (added some green tree sprinkles on top for fun!)
green tea: 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk, heat and add 1 bag of white chocolate chips and 3 tablespoonfuls of green tea matcha
fruit loop: 1 can of store bought vanilla frosting to 1 bag of white chocolate chips; add in 1 cup of crushed fruit loop cereal, and some rainbow non pareils on top
...since i made mine ahead of time, i wrapped and froze each large square of fudge and took them all out the day before i was making the treat boxes to cut and divide them up....
.....go get your treat boxes on sale post the holiday season!...the fudge made with frosting is very sweet and my kids loved this kind (surprise surprise!)...the fudge made with sweetened condensed milk is also sweet but also more creamy in texture....my kids are mint chocolate fans so that was their fav but if i had to pick one it would probably be the green tea or the cranberry....!
the cranberry would even be great to make for this valentine's day....maybe cut out some cute little hearts...right??
...and you get some super simple to make fudge in a bunch of flavors--for some very special teachers and staff at the kids' school....i can't say enough about how much our teachers do each and every day for our kids, and a little treat here and there to say thank you is the least i can do....
...hope your 2013 is off to a great start! I'm sure all the Valentine's Day stuff will be showing up soon....i think i spotted some candies already in stores, so get ready!
Have an awesome week and thanks for stopping by!
