Rocky Road Fudge

Ok cupcakes, get ready.  Hold onto your hats.  Fasten your seat-belts.  Buckle up buttercups.  Shoot, those are all the “get ready” catch phrases we know…anyway!  We’re going to go ahead and assume you’re ready.  Ready for what you ask?  For Christmas, muffins!

Wait, we’re not ready either.  Actually we are like at the other end of ready.  One blue-eyed is currently moving from one Boston house to another with nary an ornament or wreath in sight and the other is trying to determine how much garland she can strew about one rather small living space without going overboard (FYI, she’s totally going to go overboard).

And gifts?!  Well we did have a rather successful shopping excursion last week and bought some glorious new shoes for ourselves.  Oh but you mean gifts for others.  Yeah, um, no.

You totally don’t have to be ready ready.  But you have to be pre-ready.  Ready for all the December deliciousness we will be making and baking while we countdown to Christmas.

And lucky ducks, if like us, you haven’t started the shopping for gifts part (unfortunately green patent heels for yourself don’t count hmmph) don’t fret.  All month long we will be posting recipes that can be gifts themselves. 

That’s right! A month of posts dedicated to goodies to give and treats that travel.  So whether you’re heading to a holiday soiree or looking to gift some homemade treats, we’ve got you covered.

And since we know time is precious around the holidays (all that eggnog drinking takes up a LOT of time) we’re keeping it simple to start.  Like really simple.  Ridiculously simple actually.  And ridiculously good.  Chocolate, peanuts…um sweetened condensed milk!?!


You’re welcome.  Now don’t eat the whole pan.  Er and if you maybe already did that (we were hungry!), make some more.  You have 5 minutes right?  Right.  Now make some more and give it away.

See, this gifting thing isn’t so hard.
