Fairy Fudge – Tinkerbell Birthday

Most times, when I see recipes posted on Facebook or in my email, I’ll look at them for a few seconds and think “Hmm, I should try this one” and then I never look at it again. This was not the case when I saw the recipe for 4-Ingredient Funfetti Fudge. It helped that I was in the process of planning little girl’s birthday party. It also helped that it only took 4 ingredients and it looks super easy to do.

It came together super quickly and it really was delicious. It was a big hit at the party. Be aware: you only need a tiny piece of this fudge because it is really sweet. I originally cut it into what I thought were small pieces but then went back and cut them smaller.

I also added way more sprinkles than the recipe called for. When it says to top with extra spinkles “if you like” well, I apparently liked that a lot because I basically poured most of the remainder of the jar on top. I think that it looked festive and actually gave the fudge a little crunch.

Mmmmmmmm.....sprinkles.....

Mmmmmmmm…..sprinkles…..

Simple is best

This school year has been a good one but an incredibly stressful one. Most nights, I have enough energy to get the girls fed and ready for bed…..and that’s pretty much it. So, now that I’m on Christmas break and I have more time to get stuff done, I still want to keep things nice and simple. I actually have time to get stuff done….but I’d much rather use that time getting the girls fed and ready for bed. 🙂

I love Christmas-y snacks and one of my favorite pairings is salty and sweet so, of course, one of my favorite Christmas-y snacks is chocolate covered pretzels.  Not only are they yummy, they are also ridiculously easy. And they are a great way to use up random sprinkles/sugars that you’ve got in the cupboard.

Yummmmmmm

  1. Melt chocolate.
  2. Dip pretzels. (I tend to just stir a handful of pretzels in the melted chocolate. I do not have the patience to do one at a time.)
  3. Sprinkle the top of the pretzels with fun sprinkles or sugars. (Be sure to do this fairly quickly. The chocolate sets up pretty quickly and you want the chocolate to still be melty so that the sprinkles stick.) Adding sprinkles adds a little extra crunch and it’s also a great way to use up any of those sprinkles that you bought specifically for a birthday or to decorate cupcakes. I currently have a ton of sprinkles and decorating sugar so I’m always on the look out for a way to use up some of them.

This batch ended up a bit too chocolatey, if that’s even possible. You can’t really see the openings on the pretzels because every nook and cranny is covered in chocolate. Oops. But, they were still good. I am not sure how too much chocolate could actually be a bad thing.

I made a huge batch so I was able to give them as a gift and still have a bunch to keep at home.

Surprise: I already ate all of the ones at home.
