Christmas Baking|Blogmas

12 Days of Blogmas

There is just no Christmas without some holiday baking sessions! Every year I love making those white chocolate dipped molasses cookies and I’m certainly not going to stop now! I’ve added a few new items to my baking list this year and I must say, my sweet tooth is loving it!

Lets start with some fudge! Every year growing up my mom always makes her famous fudge and boy is it delicious. I wish I could eat an entire tray full but it’s so rich I can barely get through one square haha. I thought I would try my hand at this so I went to my handy dandy Pinterest app and found some yummy options! I started by getting a basic recipe and then started on my plan of attack. TO THE KITCHEN WE GO! The first batch was just a Cookies ‘n’ Cream recipe I saw and after it passed my taste testing is when s**t hit the stove top. The options can just go on and on depending on what you like. I wanted to make it look like Christmas threw up all over it….Sorry to all the weak stomachs out there. Keep an eye out for the pictures on my instagram! I completely forgot to take photos when i made them…some blogger I am haha I’ll be remaking them this week though and don’t worry, pictures will be coming shortly!

The fudge recipe I have been using is very simple and easily changeable if you want to try different flavors…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 Box Dry Cheesecake Pudding Mix
  • 3 cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 1/2 cups Crushed Oreos
  • 1 14oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

Directions

  1. In a medium sized pan, heat the can of condensed milk and white chocolate chips until completely melted and smooth.
  2. Mix in the box of dry cheesecake pudding mix along with marshmallow fluff.
  3. Remove from heat and fold in the crushed Oreos until evenly spread throughout the mixture.
  4. Pour the fudge mixture into a greased 8×8 pan and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until hardened.

It’s really that easy and takes maybe 10 minutes to create. I decided to throw some crushed peppermint in mine so give it a peppermint bark taste which by the way is another holiday must have for sweets! William’s Sonoma and World Market always have the best ones in a tin container. Next to advent calendar chocolates those are my favorite. 

Like I said I can’t go without making those molasses cookies so here they are! Until I find a different cookie that looks even prettier than these then I will continue to make these as my Christmas tradition. They are certainly a crowd pleaser just by the simple, but beautiful presentation of them.

I think I love to take pictures of them more than eat them at this point haha If you want the recipe click here. They really are wonderful and not too hard to make. I will admit that the mixing does get tiring but since my mom got me my amazing Kitchenaid mixer that is no problem AT ALL! Boy do I love my mixer!!! *Foreshadow of an upcoming post*
