Five-Minute Post: Five-Minute Fudge Wreath #weekendcooking @BethFishReads

I’m taking five minutes to get this Weekend Cooking blog post up about Rachael Ray’s recipe Five-Minute Fudge Wreath recipe. It’s in her cookbook, My Year of Meals; and the recipe is also online:


Took a picture before removing it from the cake pan bottom, just in case!
It came off the pan!

I made this recipe for our January Cookbook Club meeting to see if it could be added to the holiday treats list next year.

Although I am a fudge snob and didn’t think it counted as “real” fudge (because no soft ball stage, no candy thermometer, needed to set in fridge, etc.), the FIve-Minute Fudge Wreath was a big hit at Cookbook Club.

Not much left over after Cookbook Club!

The recipe called for optional decorations with red and green candied cherries, which I couldn’t find in my last-minute dash to the supermarket, so I decorated my wreath with the leftover walnut halves and butterscotch chips.

I would definitely make this again, and think it would be perfect for a dessert buffet or holiday potluck offering.

Happy Weekend Cooking!
