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








DIRECTIONS

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.

That quote just about sums it all up, doesn't it? Your friend is awesome - no drugs? Wow!

I could make this fudge disappear quickly. Of course, my thighs would find them just as quick.

P.S. I watch the same TV...no idea why.

This candy cane fudge looks absolutely amazing! I need to show this to my husband - up until the other day he had no idea that there are different kinds of fudge than just chocolate. I told him the possibilities are endless and he seemed so amazed :)

Roxan said...

PS A big and wonderful congratulations on the birth of your friend's new baby.

À LA GRAHAM said...

haha...I know, the only time I ever have time to watch it is late and I dont have a dvr so I have been guilty of watching an episode or two. It is like watching a train wreck...I dont really want to see it but I just cant look away!

Angie's Recipes said...

They look so pretty and festive!

Cathy said...

I admit I've watched an episode or two of that Beverly Hills bunch. It's like watching a train wreck - difficult to take your eyes off of it for some weird reason. How can that many women be completely lacking in substance? Oh well...enough of that.

My family would love, love, love your fudge recipe.

Ashley said...

This looks soooo delicious. Wish I could have a bite of it right now!

Nicole said...

I am Addicted to the OC housewives... I can't wait for the new season to start! I have never watched Beverly Hills, anyways.... your fudge looks ridiculously GOOD!

Foodessa said...

Jennifer...although this is an incredibly sinfully sweet treat for me...it is equally charming and endearing...very cheerful.
Beautiful photos and post ;o)

Flavourful wishes,
Claudia
