Delicious Chocolate Holiday Fudge

This is a delicious chocolate holiday fudge that you can prep in about 20 minutes.  Super easy.  The recipe comes from my Aunt Muff, and the rumor is it’s the See’s Candy fudge recipe.  The recipe has been in my folder of family recipes for years, but it wasn’t until last Christmas that I finally made it.  It’s super rich so you can’t eat too much at one time but it holds well in your fridge so you can make it now and enjoy it throughout the rest of the Christmas season.

New Year’s Eve Kir Royal

You better be making some Champagne cocktails this holiday season!  They require minimal effort, but the payoff is huge. The Kir Royal, a combination of Champagne and creme de cassis, is an excellent choice for your bar when entertaining during the holiday season.  I’m surprised the French even want to put anything in their Champagne, but apparently, cassis isn’t like, gasp, orange juice in your bubbly!  This cocktail makes for a pretty and different drink at your bar for New Year’s Eve.
