21 Days to Go! Today was a whirlwind of party prep! We got all the food shopping done and spent the afternoon wrapping the gifts for the shop’s luncheon/Christmas party. Each one contains a brightly printed Erin Lane project bag. As knitters do we ever have enough bags?
The tags are made with black cardstock and white ink, they look just like mini chalkboards.
I also mixed up a couple batches of quick fudge. One batch of plain chocolate,
and one batch of butterscotch, with marshmallows and toasted almonds, this one might not make it to the shop, Mr. Fix-it L.O.V.E.S it!
1.5 12oz bags of chocolate chips, (or butterscotch, peanut butter or white)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 T butter
pinch of salt
1/2 T Vanilla, (or scotch for the butterscotch)
Optional Mix-in’s- marshmallows, nuts, dried fruit, (cherries are so good, especially if you switch the extract to almond), crushed peppermint, pretzels, I’ve even mixed in chopped up Snickers!
In a heavy saucepan melt chocolate, milk, butter and salt over medium until smooth. Don’t walk away it only takes a few minutes! Remove from heat stir in vanilla. Fold in any desired combination of mix-in’s. Pour/press into a 12 inch square pan fitted with foil and well buttered. Refrigerate until set! NOTE- if you only have one bag if chips, use 2/3 can of sweetened condensed milk, (you don’t need to adjust the butter and vanilla). Enjoy!
There is much to do in the morning before the party, but I’m as prepped as I can be!
