Paula and I wanted to take some treats to our Visiting Teaching ladiesand decided on some easy white chocolate peppermint fudge (this recipe).We set about making it together, having a grand old time.
Doesn't the crushed candy cane look festive?
*Cue the screeching record sound*
Sadly, I am a doofus and misunderstood the recipe which called for "3 bags 11 oz. white chocolate chips" and when I was buying the ingredients I thought it meant 11 oz total ... NO, it's supposed to be 3 x 11 oz bags, doh! So the fudge didn't set up.
You can see it didn't slice, but you can also see a lot of scooping - in the end I made chocolate cookies and scooped the fudge in as filling.
I packaged them up in little dollar store boxes with red cellophane, green ribbon and a mini candy cane. All's well that ends well!
Six cookies fit into each box:
And we have tons of the fudge left over so that's what we'll be having for dessert when Paula and her family come over for dinner on Monday :)
