My favourite gift to give to that person who is hard to buy for? Food, treats, baked goods full of love! I am sure that surprises you–if you have been following this blog for the last few weeks, you will surely know by now that I share my emotions and share my feelings through food.
Birthday gifts teacher gifts, Christmas gifts, I’m sorry gifts…just about anything can be expressed through a batch of cookies or a loaf or a cake.
I have a hard to buy for person having a birthday this week–so Madeleine and I made one of my favourite food gifts to wrap up for her and share with her on Tuesday. One of the best things about these kind of gifts–your kids can help–they love it too! And are so proud when presenting a gift they helped to make with their own little hands 🙂
Easy Fudge (my friend Karren says this is dangerous for your waistline–don’t say I didn’t warn you! 🙂
3 cups of Semi-sweet chocolate chips (or any combination of chips that is equal to 3 cups
1 can eagle brand condensed milk
Optional 1/2-1 cup cup toasted pecans, or crushed candy cane, or m&m’s or marshmallows…you name it you can put it in!
In a microwave safe dish place chips and cover with condensed milk. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Stir and combine melted chips and milk until the mixture starts to thicken slightly–add nuts or marshmallows at this time. Mix in evenly.
Spread mixture onto parchment paper or silicone mat until about 1 inch thick. Allow to cool and set. Then cut into pieces.
Such an easy gift to give with a nice bow on it–people love to receive gifts you have made from your heart!
