Welcome to Day #5 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting today, Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.

I love fudge. Like love, love, love it. Like cannot get enough of it. I think it’s the perfect candy. It just takes me to my happy place.

What’s really cool about fudge is there are so many different varieties of it. You can make it on the stove, you can make it with cream cheese so it’s just a case of mixing it in a stand mixer,  and you can even make it in the microwave.

The possibilities are endless with what you can put on top of it as well. You can sprinkle it with sea salt, top it with caramel, or top it with peanut butter cups, or use any kind of tiny candies on top of it or inside of it. I find the endless options fascinating.

I love making different fudge recipe for the holidays. I can play with additions depending on who I am giving the fudge to. It’s so much fun. I get to make a dozen varieties of it and play in the kitchen to my heart’s content. Nothing better than playing in the kitchen around the holidays. I knew I wanted to make microwave fudge for this and I knew I wanted cake batter to be involved so I checked out my friend, Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More‘s site to see if she had one. She sure as tooting did, so I used her Cake Batter Fudge recipe to make sure I had my cake mix proportions correct. So thanks to Joan for the recipe, and for being such a lovely blogging buddy. I love this gal so it’s a pleasure any time I get to poke about her site.

    I’d have to say that I would immediately buy the colorful containers and the tin jars with lids.
    The containers look like they are perfect for filling with all kinds of goodies to give as gifts. The tin can/jars would replace old soup cans that store screws, bolts & nails that I have in the garage.

  2. Mandy Shannon says

    Mason jars, Mason jars, Mason jars, MA-SON JARS! ! And maybe hubby can have something for the garage Hahahahahahaha

  3. says

    I tried making cake batter fudge with sweetened condensed milk and it was a total fail. Yours looks like it worked, so I guess it’s gotta be the butter that made all the difference!

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      I was seriously sceptical but it is really good. I’m munching some right now. I hope you get a chance to try it Shaina.

  4. Dodie says

    I think I would have to go with these – 6 oz. Glass Flasks w/ White Tamper Evident Cap. All the better to share our yummy maples syrup with family & friends.


  5. Casandra says

    I love the glass milk bottles! They’d be perfect for my crafting supplies! I definitely need some organization in my life, this would be perfect:)

  6. Kathleen says

    What a great give-away! I use their jars for all of my small batch artesian jams. They end up being less expensive than ball jars and they are much easier to lable.

  7. Charlotte McCaig says

    I am so making this this week! I have orange and pineapple cake mixes that might be super intersting….DH makes a caramel cake mix that would be out of this world!!!!!Gotta get to the store!

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Thanks lady. It’s really good and easy. It just gives it such a nice flavour. I use cake mix for hot fudge sauce too. Lol.

  8. Heidi says

    This was amazing. I made it as directed. Then I made it with red velvet cake mix with semi sweet chocolate chips and devils food cake mix with mint chips and 1/2 t. of peppermint extract. My son said we need a safe to lock it up as he was having a hard time leaving it for the gifts it was going with!!!

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Ha, I love that. I could use a safe for so many treats these days. I am so glad you liked it. I’ll have to try it with your changes. I bet it was amazing. I love red velvet. Happy holidays Heidi. xx
