My favorite holiday candy is fudge–I’ve always loved fudge and I’ve finally found a way to make it dairy free. It’s very close to the texture of ‘real’ fudge and it tastes wonderful!
Dairy Free Fudge
1 – 10 ounce bag dairy free chocolate chips
1 – 11 ounce can sweetened condensed coconut milk
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
Pinch salt (very small pinch)
In microwave proof bowl, mix chocolate chips and coconut milk. Microwave for 60 seconds, then stir, then microwave another 30 seconds. Stir well. Beat in peppermint extract and pinch of salt. Pour into greased 8×8 inch pan. Cool. Chill in fridge till firm enough to cut. Makes 16 servings.

My favorite holiday treat is homemade walnut toffee dipped in chocolate.
My grandma taught me to make it when I was young. Something about the buttery sweet flavor with the texture and crunch, plus dark chocolate covering the outsides make it irresistible to me.
I like to give ,”consumable, ” gifts, and this is always a fan favorite, with requests for more!
A little kitchen magic stirred in always comes across in it!

My grandmother made the most amazing divinity & candied orange rinds.
Oh how I loved helping!
Your blogs bring back so many great memories.
Thank you so much
I love lebkuchen, which is a German gingerbread. First tasted it when we lived in Germany and was immediately hooked. The lebkuchen made in Nurnberg is, in my opinion, the best. Thank goodness, lebkuchen is available at this time of year from Aldi’s and can also be gotten at the commissary on most military bases.

one Christmas when my Granddaughter was younger, we made simple rice krispies treats. She’d never had the real homemade kind. We had such fun over something that was so much a part of my childhood. Sadly I “ruined” the prepackaged kind for her.

I remember making divinity with my daughter many years ago. We were breaking down the peppermint candy canes and thought that we had covered the tile countertop with enough cushioning before we began using the hammer. Apparently we didn’t as a small crack appeared. We never told anyone the reason for the crack but I don’t think that we ever smashed candy canes again in the kitchen.
It’s funny you mention fudge. My mother’s fudge was always my favorite, and one of the things I miss most since she’s been gone.
I always got such a laugh out of watching her bicker with her mother and sisters, trying to figure out why hers turned out so different, and so much better. We never did figure it out. I distinctly remember one year, Gram handed Mom a handful of cash and said “get me the exact same things you use.” It still turned out different.
