Christmas Fudge

I have wanted to make these last year but time just ran out. You know what that is all about, don't you? I have boxes of ideas for each holiday that I never got around to because time ran out. Sometimes it's OK to dig in the box for an idea but I have found that these ideas also become obsolete in only a year too.

Now I think this Christmas Fudge is something that is not obsolete. It's just one of those "I've seen that before" type items!!!

The poem is just a hoot and I have no author of it or I would have given that person credit. They sure do deserve it!!!

Here is the poem:

Dashing from the malls
With groceries yet to buy,
Workshops, kids & housekeeping,
Life's so crazy! Why?

Bells on our telephone ring,
The machine will take the call,
We have no time for family or friends,
It drives us up the wall.

How are you? How's your life?
We really want to know.
Hope you're ready for Christmas,
Now maybe it will snow.

A day or two ago,
We thought we'd make a treat,
For all our special friends--
A Christmas Gift to eat!

Our intentions were top notch,
But our schedules would not budge,
Hence, here's this year's edition of

And here is the recipe!!! LOL A chocolate bar.

You can use any size chocolate bar for these. And sorry to say but you will have to measure it for yourself as each company makes different size candy bars. The quickest way to do it is to measure the length of the candy bar and cut a piece of copier paper that size on the short end. Then set your candy bar down on the paper. Take one end and place it over the top of the candy bar. Make sure the edge goes over the top and down the side. The side won't be very wide but you need this piece as a flap to glue down to hold the candy in.

You will just pinch the copier paper with your fingers to mark the fold lines. And you will need to add on to the copier paper enough for the top for the cover if you want to have the poem on the inside like a book.

I have made several of these and used different size candy bars and have used the copier paper method on all of them. I'm not sure what country this candy bar is from. I was in the international section of the grocery store and I did look on the bar but didn't see.

You can have a lot of fun with these as gifts. I just learned this month that my younger sister likes fudge. I never knew that. Well, isn't this the most perfect gift for her???LOL I hope she doens't read this but if she does it's ok too. I am actually going to make her real fudge for Chistmas. And with any luck and time on my side I will make a cute box for it to fit into!!!

Have fun with these!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by,

This is so cute, Wanda. But you might want to correct the last part. It should be "edition," not addition. Think I might have to make some of these this year!
