Fudge! One-Minute Vacay: Dec. 14

I've been craving the sweet stuff, the Christmas cookies, the boxes of Hershey's Pot O Gold, and yes, the fudge! Fudge!!

My aunt made me my own small tupperware of her delightful fudge one year for Christmas, and it was one of the best gifts ever! I try to make at least one batch each Christmas season, and whenever I do, I think of my aunt. :)

For me, the sweetest one-minute vacations usually involve memories of family and treats.

Now, I realize not everyone loves fudge the way I do, so here is a lovely slice of chocolate cake instead.

And if you don't like chocolate, how about sugar cookies?

  1. Someone brought a plate of fudge to church last week. My fifteen-year-old son ate about six pieces. I kept telling him he was going to make himself sick, but he felt fine. I like fudge, too, but in much smaller quantities. :)

    1. I'm all about quick, easy, and no fail! I usually make my fudge with chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. It's delicious and always turns out!

  3. I don't know if I can pick a fave...I love these three layer bars my mom makes. And bing bars. And puppy chow. And Chex mix. And, yeah...pretty much all of it! :)

    1. Ooo, yum! What are Bing Bars? They sound good, like when you take a bite your eyes light up and you say, "Bing!":)

  4. Yum! I'm not huuuuuge on the fudge, but I do like a piece or two. It's too rich for me to eat a whole bunch. But I love frosted sugar cookies. I really hope my MIL makes me some this year. Haha.

    So fun to have you as my guest today!

  6. I make an odd cookie here and there...and a bit of cake. But I recently discovered white chocolate candy cane bark. Melt white chocolate, add crushed candy cane, spread it on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and chill. THEN send yourself into sugar shock!!!

  7. I LOVE fudge--but for us it's more a summertime treat. Weird, huh? But we get it on the boardwalk by the beach. The Fudge Kitchen. (They deliver) just sayin'

    I love rum balls around the holidays. So chocolate, so dense. Mmm..
