Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 cups semi chocolate chips I use Tollhouse for the original recipe
  • jar marshmallow crème Kraft jet puffed 7 oz. jar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking Sheet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Metal cookie cutter
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper with the shiny side facing up.
  • Follow the directions from the Fantasy Fudge recipe.
  • After the fudge has been completely mixed, pour or spoon the 1/2 of the fudge mixture onto the parchment paper on one baking sheet.
  • Place a second piece of parchment paper (shiny side down). A fudge sandwich has been created.
  • Careful the fudge is hot!
  • Gently press the fudge between the sheets with the rolling pin.
  • Flatten the fudge into a 1/4" rectangle.
  • Place fudge into the refrigerator to set approximately 2 hours.
  • Once the fudge has set, carefully lift off the top sheet of parchment paper.
  • Liberally spray the Christmas Tree cookie cutter with cooking spray. Wipe off excess cooking spray.
  • Cut the Christmas trees out of the fudge rectangle.
  • Using a spatula lift each tree off the baking sheet and place on a new sheet of parchment paper.
  • Return the fudge trees to the refrigerator to set. This will be a quick set. The fudge may become slightly warm and returning the fudge trees to the refrigerator will solidify the tree shape.
  • The Christmas trees are now ready to serve, eat or decorate.

Notes

Metal cookie cutters only should be used to make fudge cutouts!
