Are you well into the holiday baking and treat making season? I know we sure are! My mom just mentioned that she thought it would be fun to go caroling next week, and in true Barker-family fashion, we’ll be bring along some treats. I can’t wait to come up with some yummy plates for the friends we will be caroling to. Today I have TWO delicious recipes that I think would be perfect for your holiday celebrations and gift giving. They both feature M&Ms, which, personally, are my favorite ingredient to put in treats.
First off, easy microwave fudge. Did you know that you can make fudge in the microwave? I didn’t until recently when I saw a picture floating around Facebook proclaiming such (oddly enough, I never clicked on the picture to see the recipe.) I decided to make this M&M white chocolate fudge, and now I’m wondering why I ever took all the time I used to trying to make fudge. You can make it so quickly, and it turns out great!
I typically really enjoy chocolate fudge, but I thought it would be fun to experiment with white chocolate. It was absolutely delicious! The addition of the holiday mint M&Ms and walnuts was perfect! Jack sure enjoyed helping me make it.
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1 bag dark mint holiday M&Ms or peppermint M&MS
- Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and salt into a large, microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave in 30 second increments until everything is melted. Do not overheat. I took mine out when everything looked like it was on the verge of melting - it melted completely after a few good stirs.
- Mix in M&Ms and walnuts.
- Pour evenly into a 8x8, tin foil lined glass baking dish.
- Place in refrigerator until set (about 2-3 hours.)
