My Christmas Fudge Wreaths

This fudge, in the shape of a wreath, is so easy to make - and it's "never fail", too. Here are the supplies:
The first thing I do is cover some "prescription" bottles with plastic wrap. These are to create the holes in the center of the fudge, to create a wreath shape.
I place these in the center of small aluminum pie tins:
I lightly brush butter on the tins and the plastic wrapped bottles:
I cut "leaves" out of gumdrops or spearmint leaves:
I chop up lots of walnuts:
And here is the recipe:
12 oz bag of milk or semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter OR butterscotch chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 t vanilla extract
Melt all 4 ingredients until creamy and add 8 oz chopped walnuts

Pour into 3-4 prepared small pie tins and add a few "leaves" and little cinnamon balls:
Refrigerate until set. Then I "twist" the prescription bottle out of center:
Peel away the pie tin and it is ready to be wrapped up for gifts or ready to slice and enjoy yourself!
This takes little time but makes a lovely gift. I usually wrap it in cello wrap with a pretty bow!

  8. That is so cool, Patti! I love it! Bonus number one is I can eat this {I'm gluten free} and second, this may be the thing I can make to give to two of my new neighbors that have been so nice to us since we moved in here.
