I don’t know about you guys but the stress of the holidays hit me today. Since we live so far away from family we have to ship everything far and December 15th is pretty much the last day to mail anything to ensure that it’s not late. Not to mention my husband and daughter share a birthday on December 13th. My husband has resigned to princess parties for the rest of his birthdays. He’s totally okay with it. I feel bad for anyone with a December birthday because I just buy their gifts and give them half now and half on Christmas.

A couple of years ago I decided to do all my baking on Christmas Eve for neighbors and friends. I don’t know what I was thinking. I literally had aching legs by the end of the day and felt like I didn’t spend any time with my kids besides baking – and let’s face it, with kids it’s equal parts stress and fun. What I took away from that day is don’t wait until Christmas Eve, make things that can be prepared ahead of time. I always make these Oreo Truffles (which can be frozen), Saltine Cracker, Sugar Cookies, and some type of fudge.

I’m not gonna lie to you, I will always choose chocolate over anything white chocolate. With that being said, I really enjoyed this fudge. If you’re a white chocolate lover, you will too!
