I've never really made chocolate fudge mostly because I'm not a fan of it. However, I had noticed a new Hershey's chocolate spread had just come out and I really enjoy trying new things. This chocolate is absolutely divine. It's a must try. I loved the spread so much that I had decided to give it a try in a fudge recipe. I've never been so happy that I've experimented with this. The fudge is so creamy. It's a pleasant mouth feel.
I drizzled a little white coating chocolate on the top of the fudge to give it a little more eye appeal. I also had some left over Andes peppermint crunch that I sprinkled on a few of the pieces. Really though, the pieces are absolutely wonderful without any additions.
It seems like the closer we get to Christmas, the more things I need to bake. It's an overwhelming pull to the kitchen. I can't be the only one that feels this way. Otherwise, there wouldn't be so many complaints during the holiday season about the weight gain. So, I'm scrambling to get all my recipes to my viewers before Wednesday morning.
