It looks so lonely sitting there in the midst of the crumbs; it is the last of the Christmas treats. Here it is mid-January, in the midst of sub-zero temperatures and wind chill factors and we are down to one lone Christmas treat. It was a great holiday but it went by much too quickly. Now all that remains is this one last treat.
At least it’s a really good treat! It was an experiment that Lola and I tried that was wildly successful! I took one of my favorite recipes, Chewy Chocolate Fudge (delicious as is) and substituted Nestle Swirled Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Chips for the regular semi-sweet chips in the recipe. They were wonderful and reminded me of a cordial cherry! Here’s the recipe:
Chewy Chocolate Fudge
Melt: 1-12 oz. package chocolate chips (or substitute 1 bag Nestles Dark Chocolate Raspberry Chips), 3 Tablespoons butter and 1 can sweetened condensed milk.
Add: 1 cup flour, dash salt, dash vanilla and 1 cup nuts (optional).
Drop on a foil lined pan and bake 7 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool slightly before removing. These freeze well for up to 3 months, but will disappear in hours if left on the counter unattended.
So simple and so delicious! Chocolate and raspberries go so well together….. they remind me of Valentine’s s Day, which is just around the corner….. maybe it’s time to eat this last Christmas treat and move on to the next holiday! I think it’s time for a fresh batch!
