Candy Cane Fudge

 Sweet vanilla fudge and chocolate fudge packed with crushed candy canes and candy cane Hershey Kisses. This Candy Cane Fudge is a must have on any Holiday dessert tray this year!

I don't know about you, but I am feeling very overwhelmed this holiday season. Maybe it's because I haven't worked since March, so money is not what it use to be. Maybe it's because the new house we moved into isn't as big as what we are used to, and I don't have room for all my Christmas decor. What ever the reason, it's causing me great stress and anxiety. So much so, that I recently had what I like to refer to as a Clark Griswold moment. I want everyone to have a wonderful Christmas and I often feel like I'm the one doing all the work. I'm trying to keep it together this month, as I attempt to do some Christmas baking and figure out how to get my shopping done on such a tight budget.

Finding super easy and affordable recipes like this helps a lot. This literally takes about 10 minutes to throw together and one batch costs just under $10. Melt both chocolates with some condensed milk, add in some goodies and voila. You get a pretty and really delicious fudge. The kids LOVE this fudge and were happy to eat the scraps that I cut off, from the outside, to make nice straight edges. I have to admit is pretty darn tasty, which means a lot coming from me, since I'm usually not a fan of mint and chocolate. 



Double Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge

1 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate
1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk, divided
1 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's White Chocolate
1/3 C candy cane flavoured Hershey Kisses, chopped
1/4 C crushed candy canes, plus some for garnish
Kelley green food colour gel from Wilton (or green food colouring) 

Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, with ends extending over sides. Microwave semi sweet chocolate and 2/3 cup milk in medium microwaveable bowl on medium power for 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min.; stir until completely melted. Add chopped Hershey Kisses and mix well. Spread onto bottom of prepared pan.
 
Microwave white chocolate, a touch of green food colouring and remaining milk in separate microwaveable bowl on medium power for 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min.; stir until completely melted.

Stir in 1/4 C crushed candy cane pieces and spread over first chocolate layer. Sprinkle with additional crushed candy cane pieces, gently pressing them into the fudge and refrigerate 2 hours. Use paper handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into pieces.

    1. I totally took a chance in dying the chocolate, and went with gel colouring rather than liquid, as liquid could possibly seize the chocolate. I lucked out!

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance. Peanut Butter Confetti Squares 1 bag butterscotch chips 1/2 C smooth peanut butter 1/2 C flakes sweetened coconut 1/2 C unsalted butter (not margarine) 4 C rainbow colo
