I’m sure by now that you have noticed a theme with my holiday baking. . .easy. I like to make holiday recipes that are easy. While I actually enjoy spending time in the kitchen, I enjoy spending time with my family more. So, when it comes to holiday baking, I want to minimize the time spent in the kitchen so that I can fully enjoy time with loved ones.
Hence all of the “quick” and “easy” recipes that I have been posting lately! I want all of you to be able to spend as much time as possible with your friends and family. This fudge allows you to do just that. This quick & easy vanilla fudge is actually the base of my peanut butter fudge that I posted a few weeks ago. It’s super versatile and can be “fancied up” with your choice of sprinkles or candies.
A few notes: Be sure to line the pan with foil. . .it will stick! Make sure to stir the mixture continually while it’s boiling. . .you don’t want brown flecks in your white fudge! Make this. . .if you have never made fudge before, this is your time to start! 🙂
