Welcome to Round Two of the Christmas Cards & Cookies Blog Hop! There was so much response to the Christmas Cards & Cookies Blog Hop that it had to be split between two weekends. Round One was held last weekend. Round Two is this weekend, beginning on Saturday, Dec. 10th, through Sunday, Dec. 11th. We have a talented group of women who love papercrafting and baking. Each of them is sharing a recipe for a yummy Christmas treat along with a Christmas card or tag. Hopefully, you’ll pick up some great ideas for your own Christmas gift giving this season. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy!
In Round One of this blog hop held last weekend, I featured a cookie recipe. It's a long-time favorite called Rolo Cookies. If you'd like to see that post, CLICK HERE.
For this weekend's project, I am featuring The World's Easiest Fudge recipe. It really is super easy! Now, I know a lot of people use the recipe on the back of the marshmallow fluff jar, but I don't always have a jar of that stuff on hand. This recipe calls for only two ingredients! Here is the recipe:
World's Easiest Fudge
one bag of chocolate chips
one can of prepared frosting
Pour both into a microwavable bowl. Heat in microwave in 30-second intervals. Heat and stir until melted. Pour into wax or foil-lined pan and cool.
*Optional: Mix in nuts, raisins, crumbled cookies, etc ... to kick things up!

This fudge is really rich. You don't need to eat a lot of it to satisfy a sweet tooth!
Now, for my card shown at the very top of this post: I made a 4 x 4 note card to give with a package or tin of fudge. I like doing these little notecards because you can keep them pretty simple. The word "Christmas" on the front is actually a sticker that I matted. I added some ribbon, twine, and a dimensional sticker. The green polka dot paper is actually much brighter IRL. I wish it photographed better! *sigh* All in all, making this card was pretty easy and quick. One tip I'd like to pass on is that matting really helps to add pizzazz to a card!
Well, I hope you try out -- and enjoy -- this recipe! If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in a comment along with an email address so I can contact you.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit Theresa's blog next to see what she has to share with you!
