Easy Fudge In Cookie Cutters

While I was shopping at Walmart looking for easy holiday ideas, I found  NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Famous Fudge Kit, and knew this year making fudge cookie cutters just got easier. 

Fudge fun

 Each kit comes with everything you need to make creamy fudge. ( Of course you can always add your own touches just be sure to purchase these before leaving the store)  

Each kit makes over 1½ pounds of fudge per batch. Depending on the size of your cookie cutters you should get at least 8 to 10 out of one kit. 

Easy fudge recipe

This recipe for the Fudge Cookie cutters could not be easier, simply follow the direction on the NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Famous Fudge Kit.

Do not try to do more than one thing when making the fudge, it is super easy but you can easily burn the chocolate at the same time.

What you need to Make Fudge Cookie Cutter Place Cards:

  • NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Famous Fudge Kit
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • Holiday Shaped Cookie Cutters
  • Decorating Icing, I like the Cookie type that hardens
  • Sprinkles
  • Cellophane Bags

Directions:

  1. Lay out your cookie cutters on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  2. Prepare the Fudge per the Kit directions
  3. Using a ice cream scoop carefully fill each cookie cutter with the fudge, I prefer to fill them 3/4 full.
  4. If only adding sprinkles do so now otherwise Allow to completely cool and decorate with Icing.
  5. Place in CelloBags

 

If you want to add any sprinkles or candy do so before the fudge sets. Otherwise, allow the fudge to fully cool, and using melted chocolate or cookie icing decorate the tops of the fudge.

Put them in cello-bags and place them in a basket at the door for people to take on the way out of your party.

Or add one to each place at your table to tell guests where to sit.

I also love to decorate the dessert table with candy during the holidays. I could not resist the WONKA® SWEETARTS® Candy Canes I also found at Walmart. I love them because they are not the traditional red and white color but blues and pinks.

The kids love them because  they come in 3 tangy, fruity flavors, including Blue Punch, Green Apple and Cherry For a quick candy serving idea, I use a large glass, such as a margarita glass, and hang the candy canes around the edge. Now you have the perfect serving vessel for any extra creamy fudge or really any small candy.

You might be surprised how many of these candy canes might go missing after the party.
