Fudge! Is there really only 4 days till Christmas?

IMG_1942

I would love to say I am ready, but let’s be honest I have not wrapped one gift. Nor have I made or planned one item on our Christmas menu.

Somehow I got myself signed up to make Christmas cookies for like… everyone. Teachers, siblings, UPS delivery guys (we see a lot of Jose, especially around this time of year), co workers ( umm, sorry but your’s might be more like happy new year cookies by the time I actually get them done!) and for little Asher’s preschool class Christmas party. Asher’s party, it is today. I have not made one single cookies yet.

So yeah, that and life has left me a little behind. What’s new?

The good thing is we have snow, lots of snow. Oh, and fudge…..of course because could it really be Christmas without pounds of fudge, Christmas cookies, Rudolph cupcakes, Christmas blondies, hot cocoa, truffles and candies?

I think not.

I will totally be packing up these adorable, sinful squares into cute little Santa tins and calling it a day. Homemade gift’s in an hour! Yes!

With just four day’s left till Christmas I think we can all agree that a quick and simple dessert is a must. Something impressive that will not leave us all screaming FUDGE! I know I have been there.

Honestly, I am not really a fudge person. Although the word fudge comes out of my mouth at least once a day. Fudge the butter exploded in the microwave, fudge the cupcakes exploded all over the oven, fudge I fried my hair, fudge I burnt my hands….again. Yeah, I say fudge a lot.

Anyway, I tend to find fudge to be rather boring. Chocolate and cream? Boring! Where is the wow, the texture, the flavor? This fudge however is anything but! Umm, kahlua for one adds amazing flavor and just highlights the chocolate. It literally makes it pop! Then you’ve got the peanut butter. I mean come on, Kahlua, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, semi sweet chocolate, peanut butter. Soft, creamy, crunchy – Fudge! You are going to want to sink you teeth into the screen. I can not be held responsible.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray.
  • Add semi-sweet chocolate to a double boiler, and melt completely. Once melted, remove from heat and slowly add in sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and salt stirring with a large spatula until mixed. The chocolate will be thick. Begin in stir in kahula 1 tablespoon at a time - mixture is going to get super thick but slowly stir and just fold the chocolate mixture over until combined. Use the spatula or a large spoon to spread the chocolate in the pan. It will be very thick, just try and spread as evenly can. Do not worry to much about it though. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
  • Melt the dark chocolate and remove the pan from the fridge. Pour the dark chocolate over the fudge. Using the back of a spoon, spread it evenly over the top of the fudge. Immediately cover it with the chopped peanuts and chopped milk chocolate. Take the melt peanut butter chips and drizzle it over the top to set some of the loose candy. Let set in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut fudge into your desired size of squares.

Notes

You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds.

    So creamy and smooth, with a hint of peanut butter. The kahlua adds a unique flavor that really makes this stand out from the boring walnut fudge recipe I usually make. Everyone in the house loved it.

  3. Is it really only one ounce sweetened condensed milk. I’m metric and that makes it about 28g sweetened condensed milk to 567g of chocolate (1 to 20 oz) is this right?

    1. Hi Caitlin,
      Sorry for any confusion, you want to use 1 (15 ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    This fudge is so smooth, creamy and rather heavy. I had a hard time getting it out of the pan, let alone cut it into pieces. In the future I plan to line the pan with parchment paper before adding the fudge to make it easier to get out of the pan. It tastes wonderful. A little goes a long way!

    1. Hey Jenna,
