When winter rolls around I start thinking about hot beverages and sweet treats. I love drinking warm beverages because they warm me up from the inside out whenever it's cold outside. Then I tend to make a ton of sweets because everyone wants a treat during the holiday season!
This year I decided to combine the two into one delicious sweet. I took my favorite flavors from hot cocoa and made them into a fudge. That's right, this Hot Cocoa Fudge is perfect when paired with a cup of hot cocoa or hot coffee for the ultimate winter treat.
The other thing I love about this fudge is that it's so easy to make. Don't believe me? I made this recipe while my baby was taking a nap and his naps are pretty short these days. I managed to whip it up in about 10 minutes and still had time to sit down and get a few things finished after I was done making it.
The fudge consists of a layer of spiced dark chocolate topped with a layer of white chocolate. Then I sprinkled mini marshmallows on top of the white chocolate layer and popped it into the refrigerator. After it firmed up I cut it into squares are that was it!
I love the flavor of this fudge. The dark chocolate layer has just a hint of cinnamon and is rich and delicious. Then the white chocolate is lighter and creamy. The marshmallows on top are simply a fun addition. This is a great treat to give as a holiday gift or to put on a holiday dessert table
