My favourite gift to give to that person who is hard to buy for? Food, treats, baked goods full of love! I am sure that surprises you--if you have been following this blog for the last few weeks, you will surely know by now that I share my emotions and share my feelings through food.
Birthday gifts teacher gifts, Christmas gifts, I'm sorry gifts...just about anything can be expressed through a batch of cookies or a loaf or a cake.
I have a hard to buy for person having a birthday this week--so Madeleine and I made one of my favourite food gifts to wrap up for her and share with her on Tuesday. One of the best things about these kind of gifts--your kids can help--they love it too! And are so proud when presenting a gift they helped to make with their own little hands :)
Easy Fudge (my friend Karren says this is dangerous for your waistline--don't say I didn't warn you! :)
3 cups of Semi-sweet chocolate chips (or any combination of chips that is equal to 3 cups
1 can eagle brand condensed milk
Optional 1/2-1 cup cup toasted pecans, or crushed candy cane, or m&m's or marshmallows...you name it you can put it in!
In a microwave safe dish place chips and cover with condensed milk. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Stir and combine melted chips and milk until the mixture starts to thicken slightly--add nuts or marshmallows at this time. Mix in evenly.
Spread mixture onto parchment paper or silicone mat until about 1 inch thick. Allow to cool and set. Then cut into pieces.
Such an easy gift to give with a nice bow on it--people love to receive gifts you have made from your heart!
