Double Layer Candy Cane Fudge
Welcome baby Evan to the world! My friend just gave birth (drug free - GO HER)!
As I sit here...at home (go me I have off today) I am watching some re-runs of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Knowing my good friend just gave birth and pondering these Beverly Hills ladies all in one thought has me thinking one thing..
My Friend Tina Rules way more than them.
Now I should really ask myself this question...
Why Jennifer are you watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
It's not like I said, I rule...I said my friend did.
I have poor TV viewing habits...there I said it...Speaking of poor choices, this fudge would be one if you plan on dieting.
INGREDIENTS (recipe from the Betty Crocker website)
Chocolate Fudge Layer
1 bag of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 can of creamy chocolate spreadable frosting
White Chocolate Peppermint Layer
1 bag of white Chocolate Chips
1 can of creamy vanilla spreadable frosting
2 drops of red food coloring
1/2 cup of crushed candy canes
toppings, I used nestle red & green morsels
* This recipe produces a soft fudge
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil so foil extends over sides of pan; lightly butter foil. In a double boiler melt your chocolate chips stirring constantly, until smooth. Next add in frosting, stir until nicely combined. Spread in pan. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
One chocolate fudge alomst chilled, melt your white chocolate in a double boiler. Stir in vanilla frosting and food color until well blended. Fold in crushed peppermint candy.
Spread carefully over chilled chocolate layer. Sprinkle nestle morsels over top; press in lightly. Refrigerate just until set, about 1 hour
After 1 hour...remove from pan by pulling on foil...cut....eat...enjoy the small things..
Again...welcome baby Evan & good luck over the next few weeks to the 2nd time parents.
