There never seems to be enough time leading up to Christmas.
Even if we had an extra week, it would probably just be filled with more baking, more shopping and more parties. Much as I’d like for that imaginary week to be spent sitting by the fire, sipping hot chocolate and thinking of the true meaning of Christmas, the reality is that it would likely just be mostly filled with more hustle and bustle.
If you haven’t quite gotten around to making a sweet treat to share, to deliver or to just have around for family to nibble on here’s an EASY one for you.
In about 2 hours you’ll have a white chocolate fudge that is a bit reminiscent of funfetti cake batter. And your actual in-the-kitchen work time is about 15 minutes…or less.
Once again, a little bit of almond extract is just the perfect finishing flavor.
Oh, and if you’re like me and you’ve got a few friends who need a little gluten-free treat this holiday season, this one a perfect one to deliver!
Merry Christmas. Thanks, as always, for reading!

printer friendly recipe
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
3 ½ cups white chocolate chips
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
multicolored nonpareils and jimmies
Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with foil.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 2-3 minutes, or until white chocolate is almost completely melted. It is very important to NOT overheat the white chocolate. Stir until completely blended, melted, and smooth.
Immediately add vanilla and almond extracts and combine thoroughly. Add a handful of jimmies (as much or little as you’d like), and fold in quickly. Stirring too much will cause the jimmies to melt so don’t over do it.
Transfer to the prepared baking pan, sprinkle with nonpareils, and let set in the refrigerator. Once set lift foil out of the pan, cut fudge and serve.
