Goddies Just For You

I created this goodie box for today's WT249, to use a favorite recipe and make your project around that. One of my all time favorite goodies at Christmas is fudge, I like to make giving fudge a little special by wrapping each piece in saran wrap. I made one of the new boxes I learned how to make from my friend Kim. I cannot stress enough how super simple these boxes are and how sturdy they are after completion. If you haven' made one, try it...the instructions are here.
I soooo excited today starts my long break from work, I don't go back until Jan. 4, my girlfriend Kim and I are getting together tomorrow night to make lots of Christmas goodies. We will also be making these boxes to package the goodies in for gift giving.
I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC52. I used the Verve set Christmas In The Air and Nesting Labels 4 for the shape, I used Martha Stewart glitter, silver beads, ribbon, button, and twine.

Classic Chocolate Fudge
2 pkg.(8ounc each) Bakers Semi Sweet Chocolate

1 can (14 oz.) Eagle Brand Milk
1 cup chopped nuts

2tsp. vanilla

Melt the chocolate and eagle brand milk in microwave until smooth, add nuts and vanilla. Pour into a 8 inch square pan lined with foil. Refrigerate unitl firm, cut into squares and if you please wrap each one in saran wrap for a special gift!
