The recipe is as simple as they come and yields a creamy fudge that tastes as if you stood over that pot with a thermometer – but all you need is a couple of bowls and a microwave! You’ve got to taste this fudge to believe it and the options are endless for flavor, color, etc.

“Have you ever given someone a gift and, as soon as you hand it to them, they scrunch up their face and start complaining without even opening it? Some people actually greet the gift of a brand new day of life that way. Something to think about.”

  1. Could I use vanilla almond bark in place of the vanilla chips? I am just wondering because I have the almond bark (to make Tiger Butter with too! :-))

  2. Christy,
    I am very sorry if I came off smothering or scared you away the other day with my comments!
    Will you please forgive me?

  3. I am making and decorating sugar cookies tomorrow with my best friend , we will have an excellent day, she usually makes several kinds of fudge I will have to tell her about this it sounds so easy. I really enjoy your stories and recipes, i am so glad i found you. Have a wonderful and safe Christmas, god bless from Judi

  4. First of all thank you for putting this blog into cyberspace so my daughter and I could find you, 2ndly I really don’t comment very much, but here goes!

    I love the recipes you do, but the comment today struck me .. My husband’s mother is a heart transplant patient (she is basically a very nasty, mean and just evil person); she is one of those who wrinkles her nose. She has to comment on everything in a nasty way with malice and hatred.
    I think how pitiful she is and when I read your comment about wrinkling the nose up I thought that is so her. His parents and I have not spoken in over a year and half due to their lack of respect, dignity and courtesy for me, the only person they are truly hurting is my husband (as my daughters and I have forgiven and moved forward in life-there is alot of bad blood between them and myself/daughters that she has told they are not her granddaughters).
    I get up every day and cannot wait to see what is put on my plate for the day. I go to bed thankful for my beautiful grown daughters and my angelic granddaughters and granddogs and most of all my wonderful husband whom I love dearly. I am so thankful to be alive and moving forward each and every day to be able to read your blog with your message on it. I try to be the best person, wife, mom, grandmother that I can be. I volunteer at a food bank, I call my daughters or text them with an I love you note as often as I can (Yep I do realize they work; but I want them to know I love them and think of them often). I even text or call my husband (when I know he is stopped) while he is driving over the road and say I love you.
    Thank you for letting me comment here and thank you for your comment today…

    1. Diana G, in-laws hated me for taking away their son, said the marriage would not last, married for 50yrs, I never said anything about them, because that is the Christian thing to do. My gifts were not good enough but I still gave them the best I could afford made them food every day when they were dying at home, in the end I felt sorry for them, they missed me being a good daughter in law and all the the fun we could have had. Christy, love you and your family I can feel the love you have for your family, every time I come to your site! MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your beautifull family.

      1. Mary & Christy: Maybe that is the reason for her anger towards me as we have been married for going on 40 years. You both are so correct they are missing out on a good daughter in law, person and my daughters and granddaughters (which I am so thankful for them and love them so much !!!). Thanks I needed that lift up of my spirits today and knew I did the right thing in life. Thank you both so much !!

      1. Thanks Christy I don’t know why I didn’t see that I read the recipe over and over and was thinking cream cheese period I guess. I’m sure it will be on our Christmas table it’s so pretty.

  5. Christie – your recipes, your stories and your quotes just bless my socks off! I’m so thankful I was led to your site. Each time I see an email come in from you I know my heart will be warmed, my face will be smiling, and my taste buds will be delighted as much as my spirit!

    Wishing you and your beautiful family a Christmas season that’s as wonderful as you!

    Now, I’m off to find gel food coloring. Gel! Heard ya! Don’t have it but gonna get it. This fudge is just too festive not to make and share!

    1. I agree!! Too festive NOT to make!! Thanks for the wonderfully easy recipe. Wishing you and your family a blessed & healthy holiday…and Merry Christmas
