Before we get to the baking, let me share a few things i’ve been enjoying over the past few days,
The best oats in FOREVER.
Base of old fashioned oats, quick oats, chia seeds (made them SO fluffy) over vanilla greek yogurt.
Topped with a microwaved apple and Barney Butter. SO good!
TJ’s French Toast topped with Barney Butter
Annnd more cinnamon microwaved apple
TJ’s pumpkin pancake mix!
Look how FLUFFY!
Whole Food’s Spaghetti O’s!
Reminds me of my childhood.
With a clemintine
And Kashi Heart to Heart with peanut butter and banana and almond milk
Now… the baking!
Mama Pea’s Christmas Cookie Dough balls…oh my Jesus.
SO doughy and amazing! Though I did have to cook mine a little longer than the recipe suggests.
And The Chic Life’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls.
Now, I am in love with Mama Pea’s Dough balls but these… these.. are so. good.
Buttery and chocolately and doughy and just freakin amazin.
And then tonight, a tradition handed down to me, I made fudge. My grandmother used to make it and give it away as gifts to our family and when she passed away, I continued the tradition. And the incredible recipe? Off the back of the Marshmallow Fluff jar. I kid you not. It all starts here.
Chop up your chocolate..and it WILL get everywhere, and set aside.
Combine butter, sugar, and condensed milk over heat (hey, I didn’t say this was low-calorie..)
And wait on it to melt…
And eventually come to a boil.
You then boil it, take it off the heat, and add in your marshmallow fluff, chocolate, and vanilla.
And then stir, stir, stir and wait on it to melt together…
Your patience is rewarded with this velvetty chocolate liquid fudge.
Pour into a pan, allow to set, and voila! The best, easiest, chocolatey fudge you will ever make.
And you can use your imaginations as to what happened to THIS.
I also made these, but you’ll just have to wait to see what this is..
I hope you and your families have a very Merry Christmas!
