Christmas Almond Butter Fudge

Christmas Almond Butter Fudge

Christmas Almond Butter Fudge

I’m still in a fudgy mood in my kitchen today, so this morning I developed a Baby Boomer Bakes recipe for Christmas Almond Butter Fudge. I intended to make another flavor of homemade fudge and the tall jar of almond butter kept calling to me. I’m so glad it did! This is creamy, decadent and delicious. Actually it tastes better with almond butter, than ordinary peanut butter. I was shocked! Maybe it’s the unexpected taste of the almonds. Do you think?

So … here’s another candy for your Christmas collection; Baby Boomer Bakes Christmas Almond Butter Fudge.

Enjoy … and from my kitchen to yours … Merry Christmas!
