Candis Terry's Twelve Days of Sweet + Giveaway - Day 7

Amazon | Barnes | iTunes | Kobo

Paige Walker Marshall (from Home Sweet Home/For Love and Honor Anthology)

The holidays can be so stressful. Since my hot hubby, Aiden Marshall, and I own and operate an apple orchard and the Honey Hill Bed and Breakfast, we are always busy. Okay, I’ll admit some of that time (maybe a lot) is spent heating up the sheets. So I like to keep (other) things fast and simple. Here’s an easy recipe that not only tastes great, it’s also a wonderful gift for party attendees, co-workers, or the lady who grooms your dog. And everybody knows chocolate is an aphrodisiac, right? I suggest you indulge with a glass of bubbly and that special someone. Enjoy!

Cookie Cutter Fudge

Here's a sweet gift for someone with everything. Place cookie cutters and fudge into cellophane gift bags, and tie with ribbons.  Thank you Betty Crocker!

Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 2 hr 20 min
Servings: 6

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Betty Crocker™ white or red decorator icing (in 4.25-ounce tube), if desired
Candies, if desired

  • Place each of six 3x1/2-inch mitten-shaped cookie cutters, or other cookie cutters in a simple shape, on 5-inch square of foil. Seal foil tightly around outside of each cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheet. Lightly spray cookie cutters with cooking spray.
  • In 4-cup microwavable measuring cup, mix chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, milk and butter. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are almost melted. Stir in vanilla.
  • Pour mixture into cookie cutter molds, filling to tops of molds. Refrigerate uncovered about 2 hours or until firm. Decorate with icing and candies.
  • Carefully remove foil. Gently press fudge out of molds to serve.

  1. Rum balls are the best!

    1. I've never any, but the Rum caught my attention!

  2. Although I find the cowboy on the cover very nice, the poor man really needs a heavy coat for Christmas. The fudge sounds delicious--anything with chocolate chips and Eagle brand is good.

  11. Every year I make sugar cut-out cookies which is made with cake flour. They are so delicate and delicious! I make one Santa Face personally for each person.
    The Fudge looks and sounds really good! I like the idea of giving the cutter with the fudge. Thank you!
