Christmas Fudge!

I made these super cute containers with christmas fudge for my girl's brownie and sparks leaders and I just LOVE how they turned out!

I used my mega scallop punch to make little wrappers for the fudge and punched out tissue and foil.
The tissue is too thin to punch out one layer at a time, so I punched out 8 layers (less work anyway!) and punched out the foil in between to keep the blades sharp.

The containers are made by BoBunny and were pre-printed and pre-scored and just needed to be punched out and assembled. Then tags were made from SU!'s Tags on Board set. I stamped the merry christmas with gold ink on red cardstock and then punched out with a SU! punch.

The Happy holidays tag was first stamped on clear acetate with white stazon and then stamped on Certainly Celery cardstock with black stazon.

The Happy Holidays is stamped with real red classic ink. I added stickles (of course!) and then let dry. Cut out the tags, layer and punch hole. I didn't layer them perfectly so you could see the 'shadow'. The little gems on them is some MP3 player bling that came with DD's high school musical 2 DVD. We don't have an MP3 player (much to her dismay!) So mama got the bling to play with! I added the recipe for this super simple fudge and then tied a bow around and added the tags and a little extra silver tie.

I love how they turned out and my girls are so excited about giving them to their leaders. Here's the recipe for this super simple and really yummy and creamy 5 minute fudge (okay, maybe it took 7 minutes or so, but it was still SUPER quick)


2/3 cup Carnation Evaporated Milk
1 2/3 cups White Sugar
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
1 ½ cups Mini marshmallows
1 ½ cups Chocolate Chips

Mix milk, sugar and salt in saucepan. Heat to boiling.
Cook 5 minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from hear and add remaining ingredients.
Stir until marshmallows dissolve. Pour into buttered
8” x 8” pan. Let cool, divide into squares and enjoy!
