Make All Your Friends Jealous with this Simple Hot Chocolate Fudge Recipe

I love getting to bake and make fun desserts during the holidays (or just any occasion, really). I usually go for my usual: confetti cake, brownies, or cookie brownies. However, I made fudge for the first time with my mother for the Thanksgiving holiday and really wanted to do something for the Christmas season with fudge. After browsing around Pinterest, I found one that really interested me: Hot Chocolate Fudge.

The name alone is reason to like it. However, the other great part about this fudge is that the recipe is super simple. Seriously, it only requires four ingredients: white chocolate, dark chocolate, and sweetened condensed milk.

Really, there’s no way to mess up this recipe unless you manage to overcook the chocolate.

The end result is chocolatey and delicious! I definitely recommend it.

You’ll need 2 cups of dark chocolate.

And 1 1/2 cups of white chocolate. Grab a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk. Put 5 tablespoons with the white chocolate and the rest goes with the dark chocolate.

You’ll also need mini marshmallows. The recipe called for 1 1/2 cups, but I say make that however you want.

Microwave the dark chocolate for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave for 15 seconds and stir until the chocolate is all melty and smooth. Layer it at the bottom of a 9 x 9″ pan (greased first, of course).

Then microwave the white chocolate for 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Pat down on top of the layer of dark chocolate.

Top off with a layer of mini marshmallows. Press down gently so that it sets into the white chocolate layer.

Refrigerate for at least 6 hours and then enjoy!

Spice Up Your Holiday Parties with this Mulled Wine Recipe

Day 14 of Blogmas and I’m slowly losing my energy. But I will persevere all the same! I can’t start something like this and give up halfway.

I’m totally going to take inspiration from the Ugly Christmas Sweater party that I attended last night. It was a blast getting to mingle and chat with new people – all of whom were super friendly and fun to talk to! There was a variety of snacks that everyone brought over, but my favorite part of the food/drinks part of the night was the mulled wine that a few of the guests made.

I’ve never had mulled wine before then, but I will definitely have it again. They mixed two bottles of red wine with apple cider, honey, cinnamon, ginger, oranges, and some zest. It was warmed up in a crock pot, which is why it’s so perfect for winter. The drink ended up being super sweet and just absolutely delicious. I was sad that I had to limit myself to one cup because I had to leave early!

If you’re looking for a more specific recipe, here is one for the image up above on Gimme Some Oven. But, honestly, feel free to deviate from the recipe a little bit and make it your own!

What drinks are you preparing for your holiday parties this year? Any faves when you go out? Let me know down in the comments below!
