Christmas Fudge in a Zip Lock Bag

Christmastime is coming around again, and it is time to start preparing all of your favorite holiday treats. Start making the caramels, break out the eggnog, concoct the fruitcake, mix the fudge! Fudge is one of my most favorite holiday treats, and it's definitely something that, when made correctly, can be the best part of a winter night with the Christmas lights shining.

Sometimes making homemade fudge can be intimidating and you may not know exactly how to do it. If you are more of a fan of the simple and easy way to create Christmas treats, then here is the recipe for you.

Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • 2 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup of margarine
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa

You really don't have to make this in a zip lock bag; although, you probably could! All you need to do is measure out all the ingredients and mix them together with a hand mixer, a Bosch, or a KitchenAid. It will definitely seem dry at first, and you may be worried that you messed up the recipe; however, don't worry! The fudge will seem dry at first, but give it a few hours in the refrigerator, and you'll have fudge for sure!

Like I said before, make sure that you chill the fudge for a while before you form it into eatable pieces. Once it is chilled, sit down at the table with some waxed paper and some plates and perhaps sprinkles, and start finishing up your fudge. Take small pieces of the fudge from the bowl and mold them into little spheres or cubes. If you want to, dip the small pieces of fudge into Christmas themed sprinkles. Place the fudge on plates (with waxed paper if you're worried that they might stick), and when you're finished, put them back into the fridge. Take out the fudge when you're ready to eat it, and when no one is eating the fudge, put it back into the fridge. Now that you're ready to enjoy your most amazing fudge that was most easy to make!
