On the tenth day of Homemade Christmas, I made Baileys 5 Minute Fudge.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Then again Christmas is just a few days away. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet or are you just starting? How about that holiday baking? Yeah, my family is devouring everything as fast as I can make it. That includes Baileys 5 Minute Fudge.
I guess I can’t really blame my husband, Baileys plus fudge is just delicious. It is a combo that is meant to be like peanut butter and jelly or macaroni and cheese.
The fudge is very easy to make. It is actually harder to find a couple of the ingredients in the fudge. Currants and Hazelnuts took me all over Fayetteville. I eventually found the chopped hazelnuts and chose to leave the currants out. They were not missed but my husband and I are not huge fans of dried fruit in our fudge.
As for the hazelnuts, if you cannot find them you could substitute another nut such as pecans.
This recipe is the newest addition to my family favorites and will be made for years to come. After all, you can’t have too many fudge recipes right?
