I’m so bummed that we didn’t get to go to the Christmas parade yesterday. Normally they have the parade at night but this year they decided to have it in the middle of the day yesterday and well I had to be present for some family business and had to miss out.
I did get to see a few floats go by this morning while they were getting things ready but that was it. Literally we’re living like a few streets over from where they have the parade and I still didn’t get to go. Oh well, maybe we’ll get to go next year.
It’s getting kind of hard to get into the Christmas spirit this year! We still don’t even have a Christmas tree. I kind of told Thomas that if we don’t get a tree soon that it will be a waste of time to get one and set it up. I mean who wants to get a tree like the week before Christmas.
Perhaps I should just put up the “beach Christmas tree” this year and buy a tree when they go on sale after Christmas.
Oh, the beach tree? It’s the 3 foot tree that we bought when we went to the beach for Christmas one year haha. We put it up last year because we didn’t get a full size tree.
But that’s enough about the tree. We’ll get all of that worked out and I’ve got my fingers crossed that we’ll have one up before the end of the week!
Ok, so onto the Easy White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge that I’m posting today! This week is Christmas Week and a bunch of us (food bloggers) have gotten together to share Christmas recipes with y’all and a HUGE giveaway!
Now the giveaway is at the bottom of this post but before you jump down to that section make sure that you grab this recipe.
This Easy White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge only had 3 ingredients just like all of my favorite fudge recipes.
It’s got a fantastic peppermint flavor with a thick and wonderful layer of white chocolate fudge.
Even though this 3 ingredient fudge is almost like the other fudge recipes that I’ve posted, I have to tell you that there is just a little bit of a difference. This white chocolate fudge stays a bit more tacky that the other fudge once you cut it.
So after you cut it into squares just let it sit for 30 minutes so that the tackiness disappears.
White Chocolate Peppermint
- 4 cups white chocolate chips
- 2 (14 oz ) cans sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups chopped peppermint kisses
Line a 8x8 pan with foil or parchment paper.
Create a double broiler by place a glass or metal bowl over top of a sauce pan. Fill the sauce pan with about 1/2 a cup of water. Bring the water to a simmer. (There should be enough water in the pan to simmer to but enough to touch the top bowl.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips to the top bowl. Heat the white chocolate chips until they are melted, stirring every minute or so.
Pour the melted chocolate chips into the 8x8 pan.
Sprinkle a layer of chopped peppermint kisses over the fudge.
Let sit for 4-5 hours or until firm.
Cut into squares.
Unlike the regular fudge, the white chocolate is sticky. After you cut it into squares let it sit for 30 minutes so that the tackiness disappears.
