Easy Christmas Fudge
As I mentioned when we shared Home Made Christmas Mints. Making candy of any sort has always been scary to me. Every time I ever attempted to make fudge, it was always a huge fail. All that getting it to exactly the right texture and having to use a candy thermometer. Every attempt made it came out hard as a rock or really soft and runny that you had to eat with a spoon.
All of my kids knew well they were growing up, that if there was going to be any fudge or bark through the holidays, dad would be making it. Dad is great at making the thick fudge with fluff that looks awesome and tastes great. My mother also makes great fudge but hers is thinner, pretty much just Hershey 's dark powdered chocolate, sugar, and butter. I love this version because its what I grew up eating, however, it was so sweet it gives you a toothache -haha.
When I found this recipe that only took 4 easy ingredients and could be thrown in the microwave, I was so excited. Could this really be so simple? Turns out it can be. And it is made with white baking chips which are my absolute favorite at the moment. I was never a fan in the past but have developed an addiction to them. If they are in the house, I am eating them non stop. Clearly not good for my waistline.
