How is the holiday season going for you so far? Are you managing all of the activities, get-togethers, shopping, gift wrapping, planning, and traveling involved?

I’m staying afloat over here, but I’m not going to lie…it’s been challenging. One thing that has helped (besides just saying no to a lot of things) has been finding simple, easy recipes to create for the events that I am able to attend.

Last night I brought a pan of this microwave fudge to a Christmas service project activity at our church.

Honestly, I shy away from making fudge since it has a reputation for being difficult and not always turning out just right. This easy fudge recipe without condensed milk was a delight to make though! Velveeta fudge is simple, easy, and a hit with everyone. What more can you ask for when creating a holiday treat?

Maybe you’ve heard of Velveeta fudge before. It’s one of Kraft’s most requested recipes! I’d never heard of it and was a little skeptical (Velveeta in FUDGE?? Making microwave fudge? Wha??) but the simple process and the prospect of actually making a good, easy fudge recipe without condensed milk for once made me willing to give it a try. Glad I did!
