This fudge is a re-make of my favourite fudge recipe, with some added spices to give it some warm, festive flavour. It’s so good and so simple to make. All you have to do is melt and mix, and in minutes you’re fudge is ready.   15133706_10101035976637210_1142100820_o

This would make a perfect addition to a Christmas dessert spread. It can be made ahead of time, it looks Christmassy, it’s easy to transport and serve, and it’s sure to win over any fudge lovers.15152937_10101035976552380_128554272_o  

 

For mix-ins I went with cranberries and pistachios, but you can go for a different combination…it’s really easy to customize…walnuts, goji berries, or raisins would also be good. 

If you get a chance to try this, take a picture and tag it #peacemealxo on instagram. I’d love to see your fudge creations!
