Pistachio Rose White Chocolate Fudge is coming ‘atcha, but let me first back up just a bit. Currently, I’m on a cruise ship sailing my cares away, but right now? As we speak? I’m writing this post from my in-laws’ living room. Daniel has the Lord of the Rings playing while the family sips out of red cups, and we all laugh at my 6-year-old niece jumping around like a frog.
It’s fun. The festivities of Thanksgiving/Christmas are over. Since we live so far from our family, we celebrate both holidays in one day. It was fun but really very tiring. I’ve spent most of this day trying to recover from having zero alone time and blood sugar that just doesn’t want to cooperate. It’s just finicky like that. Really special.
I look forward to our time together because, what are you going to do? Sleep will wait for when I’m, you know… And so, I’ve been doing loads of gravy-stained laundry and packing up for our next adventure. We’ve decided to just skip this whole “vacations in your 30’s” thing. What do vacations look like? Maybe a few weeks in Europe? Or maybe a trip to New York I’m assuming? I wouldn’t know because we’ve skipped that and went straight to our “vacations in your 40’s” thing. We are heading out on a cruise. The great news? We are going with Daniel’s Aunt and Uncle and their four (awesome) kids. Seriously love them. I’m assuming we are already seven rounds into the buffet today and maybe even about to take a dip in the pool. We will naturally want the pool to ourselves so there is a good chance we will sneak a Baby Ruth into that sucker.
All right, let’s talk about Pistachio Rose White Chocolate Fudge which is, no doubt, why you are here today. So, I keep making fudge. I brought some to Thanksgiving this year, although it was milk chocolate which you can substitute to your liking. But, white fudge just looks so festive and pretty for Christmas. You go ahead and go as your heart leads. I trust you!
This is a really delicious and creamy fudge. You guessed it, it’s that cheat fudge because, I just don’t have the time for liiiiiife. It’s similar to the fudge I used on these fudge layered brownies. Can we just agree that a double boiler and about 10 minutes of your time is all that you have the energy for around this time of year? Yes, so this is my Christmas gift to you. Next week, I’ll have a little more of an intensive Christmas cookie recipe that you won’t want to miss. I know there are a lot of people out there like me who just want to spend some more time in the kitchen. Can’t get enough time in there. I miss it guys. It’s been too long since I’ve seen it. Maybe I’ll have our house sitter send a picture of it to me. That wouldn’t be eccentric at all.
