I love creating delicious Christmas trays full of cookies and fudge. I get requests for this fudge all the time but I make them wait until Christmas to get it. Little do they know how incredibly easy this fudge is to make….shhh….that’ll be our little secret. No candy thermometer! Just simply melt and pour. The hardest thing about this fudge is waiting until it’s hard enough to cut into squares. Hahaha…..
Have you ever had toasted pecans? By toasting them you will create a deeper, richer pecan flavor. Toasting pecans is easy but you need to keep your eye on them. Before you know it they’ll be black you don’t want that!
HOW TO MAKE TOASTED PECANS: Pour pecans in a dry skillet, turn heat to a medium setting, stir and continue to cook until the pecans start turning brown and you can smell the pecans. Pour into a bowl to cool. It’s that easy and the rewards are incredible. I love adding toasted pecans to all sorts of dishes, my favorite is tossed green salad.
