Christmas Favorites: Fudge

I officially started making Christmas goodies this week. One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is, of course, the food. In our family there are recipes that are reserved for Christmas only. It makes those treats extra special, since we only make and eat them once a year. I'll be sharing a few of my favorites this month. First up is a classic: Fudge.

This is a really simple and fairly foolproof fudge recipe. You can make it with or without peanuts, or substitute another kind of nut or any other extras you feel like adding. It also makes a great gift.

Line a small rectangular or square pan with wax paper.
Bring sugar, butter, cocoa, and water to a full boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil for 2 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine cornstarch and flour.
Remove cocoa mixture from heat and pour over cornstarch & flour. Add vanilla and beat until smooth.
Stir in peanuts.
Pour into pan and refrigerate until set.
Once set, pull edges of wax paper out of pan, flip fudge over and peel paper off before cutting.


  1. Nancy, can we be neighbors so I can taste test all your baked goods?! My word!

    Oh my goodness, looks delicious.

  3. Haha! Yes please! I could really use a taste tester...the downside of having a baking addiction is the ridiculous amount of sweets we end up eating! :)

  4. Thanks Kristy! It's a classic in our family! :)
