Cooking

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is DOUBLE-DECKER FUDGE!

When I think of Christmas recipes that get pulled out every year to share with my friends and family, candy tops the list. I have a LOT of wonderful candy recipes so let me share one of my favorite fudge recipes. This fudge doubles the fun!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

  1. Karen, your recipes are certainly killer! Thanks for this one, too. I must make it when my neighbor’s little boy comes back from Christmas holidays. You’re not only a woman with a fine sense of humor and a consummate author, but you’re a good cook, too!

    Thanks for all you do, and a happy and prosperous merry Christmas and new year to you and your family and friends!

    Yummy!

    Here’s the recipe that most people beg me to bring to work…

    Line a 13×9 with parchment paper

    Graham cracker crust (13 rectangles and 1 cup of butter/margarine – though in our climate, I have adjusted that so it worked) – press that into the pan evenly

    Spread each of the following out in the pan:
    1 bag of chocolate chips (I prefer dark)
    1/2 bag of white chocolate chips
    1/2 – 1 bag of peanut butter chips
    1/2 bag of caramel bites (those little round ones in the baking aisle)
    About a cup of coconut

    (I mix the chips up sometimes based on what I have – one son likes it with cinnamon chips – but not too many maybe 1/4 cup?)

    Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over the top (I have used the caramel one and it’s good – chocolate flavor is too much I think)

    Sprinkle chopped nuts over top – I use peanuts, pecans, and almonds and grind them into really fine pieces. I store my nuts in the freezer and they last longer.

    Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or so. Let stand for about 10 minutes. Pull the parchment paper out and place the “block” on a large cutting board. Cut them into smaller squares – they are really rich. Lift the parchment and put it back in the pan for another 30-60 minutes to harden – of course tasting at this point is good, too.

    They are really easy and people LOVE them….

    Now, when should I make this fudge? Might just have all of the ingredients….

  3. Not only your recipe , K, but Samantha’ s practically have me in a diabetic coma! 😉
    They sound fabulous but a little would go a long way! Perfect for parties!
    Thanks for sharing. 🙂
