Christmas Food

One thing I love to do this time of year is make comfort food. 

Since we have been out of school for two days, now… we made a few things and I wanted to share some recipes. 

 

First, I found the easiest Peanut Butter Fudge recipe ever and it is SO good. 

Peanut Butter Fudge

1 cup PB

1/4 tsp salt

2 sticks unsalted butter

1 lb powdered sugar.

Melt the PB, butter and salt in microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth, add in powdered sugar and spread into 8×8 greased pan. 

Next on the agenda was:

Orange-Dreamsicle Fudge 

3/4 cup butter

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

3 cups sugar

1 bag white chips

1 jar marshmallow cream

12 drops yellow food coloring

5 drops red food coloring

3 teaspoons orange extract

 

Melt butter, sugar and cream over low heat. Bring mixture to a boil and boil 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in white chips and marshmallow cream. Remove 1 cup. Add food coloring and orange extract to remaining mixture and spread into 13×9 greased pan. Drop remaining white fudge by spoonfulls on top and swirl with a knife. Refrigerate until set. 

 

These are both soooo good. The Orange is almost too sweet. The peanut butter is perfect. 

 

I am planning on making pralines for the first time ever as well as try a recipe for chocolate dipped macaroons. They both look delicious and I can’t wait to try them!

What are you making this season?
