Making some Christmas treats… Or trying to at least! 

I am a little addicted to Instagram and over the last few weeks lots of people have been baking and making some yummy looking Christmas treats, so I thought I would get in on the action!

 

Picture from google search ‘Christmas treats’ – mmmmm 😋

 
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making fudge. It seems so easy to make and if you try and buy it from a pix and mix it ends up costing about £100 for 3 pieces! 

I searched for the easiest looking recipe I could, which turned out to be this one from the Feed Your Family for £20 website. It had to be easy as my last baking stint I went through last summer ended in disaster with a hospital trip and strapped up fingers (but that is another story! 😂) 

  
So easy Toblerone fudge it was. After melting the Toblerone, chocolate and condensed milk in the slow cooker…  

  
…I added the icing sugar. Cue kitchen looking like a snowstorm – that stuff gets everywhere!! ❄️

I then had to stir every 10 minutes (not an exact science and I definitely may have had a little nap and missed some stirs! 💤). After 80 mins it was ready to put in a tray to set in the fridge.   


  
Getting it in the the tray was a nightmare! A too hot to touch slow cooker + sticky unset fudge = burnt hands ands lots of swearing! But I did it and after setting it the fridge it doesn’t look half bad 😊

  
I haven’t tasted it yet as I don’t want to ruin the illusion. I’ve packaged it up to give as little treats to family tomorrow – hope it’s half decent! 

  
What Christmas treats have others made? I’m sure there will be plenty on offer tomorrow 🎄
