Here is a quick and easy treat to share with friends or co-workers:
As always, I do things a bit unconventionally: I wrapped a few perfume sample bottles in plastic wrap:
and bought a few disposable muffin tins:
You'll need some spearmint leaves and cinnamon candies:
The fudge recipe is simply:
12 oz chocolate chips (I prefer milk chocolate)
1 c butterscotch chips
1 T vanilla
1/2 c chopped walnuts
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Heat it all until melted and combined.
I prepare my leaves by slicing the spearmint leaves thinly:
I spray the muffins tins with a bit of Pam, then wipe it with a paper towel.
As I pour the fudge into the muffin tins, I stand up the covered perfume bottle in the center, and then gently press in the leaves and cinnamon candies:
I refrigerate the fudge until set and "twist" the perfume bottles out of the center:
I cut the muffin tins apart and then gently peel away the foil:
They can also be made in mini pie tins (I cover lipstick tubes in plastic wrap for those!)
Not only is it easy, the fudge tastes so good and makes for a pretty presentation when served on a pretty dish or wrapped in cellophane with a pretty bow!
