Fudge Recipes For The Holidays

Let’s talk fudge recipes.  Fudge is one of those things that is on my must have Christmas baking list.  It simply isn’t Christmas without some Chocolate Walnut Fudge in my opinion.  I’ve always used Eagle Brand’s Foolproof Fudge Recipe, it’s about as easy as it gets, comes together in not time and no candy thermometer required (that’s a biggie for me!).   I’ve been making the same fudge recipe for years, and I’ve decided it’s time to get creative and try some new fudge recipes.   Today I have three delicious but very simple fudge recipes for you, Candy Cane Fudge Recipe, Cookies And Cream Fudge Recipe and Vanilla Bean Salted Caramel Fudge Recipe.

Fudge Recipes

All of these recipes are based off of the Cookies And Cream Fudge Recipe from Eagle Brand.   They are all quick, simple and easy, and no candy thermometer is required – that’s my kind of fudge!

Vanilla Bean And Salted Caramel Fudge Recipe

Vanilla Bean And Salted Caramel Fudge Recipe

All three recipes are completely delicious, but completely different – and I love that!   The Vanilla Bean and Salted Caramel Fudge Recipe is probably my favorite.  But, that said, it’s messy.  Very messy.  I used ice cream topping caramel sauce, and I think it really needs a homemade caramel sauce.  I was pretty certain about that while making it, but I wanted to try this really easy version just to see if it would work out.  Flavor wise it’s amazing, but it’s just kind of gooey and messy.  To me that is perfectly fine, it’s just a challenge for packaging up, displaying or gift giving.  So if nothing else, make a batch and just eat it yourself.   I won’t tell anyone.  :)  You could also omit the caramel and just make a vanilla bean fudge.  It would be awesome with walnuts in it (I love walnuts in fudge!).

All of these recipes are made with Eagle Brand.  I have an awesome Eagle Brand giveaway going on right now that includes a KitchenAid Stand Mixer!  It ends in a few hours, so don’t walk, run (or just click) over to this post and enter to win before it closes on the evening of December 5th, 2013.
