Hi friends, I wanted to post an idea for a quick, delicious and inexpensive holiday gift. This is the easiest (I promise) and fastest
(still promising) fudge recipe that you will ever make. It only takes
about 5 minutes and is really yummy. This fudge also makes sweet
little gifts when poured into holiday shaped cookie cutters and wrapped
up with some ribbon. It's fudge AND a cookie cutter...it's the gift that
keeps on giving. Who wouldn't want that?
Cranberry Orange Fudge with Almonds
12 oz. Chocolate (can use semi-sweet chips or any other kind of chocolate)
1 C Butterscotch Chips
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 C of Orange flavored dried Cranberries (available at Trader Joes)
1 C of Almonds
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the inside of the cookie cutters with a non-stick cooking spray. Place on parchment paper & set aside.
Over low-medium heat, melt the chocolate & butterscotch chips. Add the Sweetened Condensed Milk & Vanilla. Remove from heat & add Cranberries & Almonds. Pour into cookie cutters and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Wrap in a cellophane bag & tie with ribbon.
*The first 4 ingredients are a base for any type of fudge you want to make. You can add raisins, nuts or any other ingredients to the mixture. The fudge that is pictured above has marshmellows added to it...which I am not sure I like or not. I was going for a rocky-road type thing, but it melted and just turned into a bunch of marshmellow goo. Plus, I think I like the look better of just solid chocolate....Happy Baking!
