Simple Fudge Recipe

 I didn't post this recipe before Christmas because I didn't want to ruin Christmas for some, since my boys used this recipe for gifts this year. But now that Christmas is over, I will share the recipe.

This Fudge is SO simple that Robert can make it by himself and Garrett can easily help make most of it.

You need:
nonstick cooking spray
12oz. bag of chocolate chips (we have found that different flavored chips work well too)
16oz. ready made frosting (regular, not whipped frosting)
1/4 c. finely chopped almonds optional ( we have also used crushed peppermint sticks, sprinkles, etc.)
9x9" glass pan

Spray the 9x9 pan with the cooking spray and set aside
Pour the chocolate chips and frosting into a microwave safe bowl.
Heat the frosting and chips in 30 second increments until melted smooth. Stir after each 30 seconds to check for smoothness.
Stir fudge until smooth and well mixed together.
Now pour into prepared pan
Sprinkle toppings top top and you may need to gently push the toppings into the fudge.
Refrigerate until completely cooled and firm.
Cut into 1" squares and enjoy!

We usually make several different flavors and then the boys wrap up a couple pieces of each flavor and make a fudge assortment in nice tins that I usually pick up during the "After Christmas Sales" the year before.

This would be a great little gift for Valentine's Day so you might want to keep this recipe in mind.

Take time and have some fun with your kids in the kitchen !
