Oh Fuuuuuudggggge!

Had to do that title since A Christmas Story is one of two of my all time favorite Christmas movies and I did make fudge!  Thanks to Patti at Pandora’s Box I followed her recipe and idea for fudge wreaths found here.  I couldn’t find the aluminum mini pie pans but I did find these tins at Walgreens {3 for $2.00}.

I thought these would work out since I am giving them to two of my new neighbors and the mail carrier.  I lined them with parchment paper on the bottom and around the sides.

I followed Patti’s instructions to make the fudge.  The only thing I didn’t add was the nuts and I used red candy covered chocolates instead of the hot candies for the wreath.

I also made a tray of gingerbread folks with the left over and a heart, so this way I could taste test it and make sure I’m not poisoning anyone.

I’m happy to say it turned out delicious!  Now to fill out the little tags that came with the tins, write up a Christmas card and I’ll be delivering these to my neighbors and putting the mail carrier’s in my mailbox {it only opens by key so it’s safe to put in there}.

CAS said...

Oh, yum, that looks really good and is such a cute way to gift them! I'm heading over to check out the recipe very soon.

Had to do a bit of catching up on some past posts. Your trees all look wonderful. I think I have identical ones to your 2 small ones. I bought mine this year at Big Lots at a good price for the pair. Love your kitchen tree (I did one this year, too) and the way you decorated over the kitchen cabinets. It all looks pretty darn Christmasy at your home!

Yummo!! That fudge looks wonderful! I am ready to start making some Christmas goodies. I have several pinned on Pintrest that I'm going to make soon. I looked at your Christmas decorations and everything looks beautiful! I'm sure you have had fun decorating your new place. I really liked that glittered Santa you found at a grocery store. He is so cute! Thanks for entering my givaway and posting about it!! Have a great night, Kristen
