Now that Thankgsiving is over, it's time to begin all the holiday baking! Here's my first of hopefully many!
1/4 heavy whipping cream
1 TBL honey
3/4 cup chopped cashews or other nuts (opt)
3/4 cup red and green M&M's
Line the bottom of a 8X8 pan with foil, overhanging the edges by a few inches. Spray with pam.
In a large bowl, mix the vanilla chips, heavy whipping cream, and honey. Melt in microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Place in microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. It should be melted and smooth (if not, add for another few seconds!). Stir in the nuts, if using, and allow to sit in bowl for 30 minutes.
Quickly add M&M's (just 1/2 cup), and spread into pan. Sprinkle with a few more M&M's, and press down into mixture a little. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Remove fudge and foil from pan and place on cutting board. The fudge should easily slip off the foil, and just the fudge should remain on cutting board. Slice in desired sized pieces!
