This time of year, in addition to the normal fun holiday buzz, there is the extra excitement of celebrating with friends. Everyone seems to be focused on the festivity of the holiday season, and the giddy smiles and happy laughs happen even more right now.

One of those giddy happy feeling friends is Lora – her friendship continually reminds me of why I love this online community so much.

Lora recently mentioned my fudge recipes from last year, so I created one just for her.

and I made it extra fun.

Lora is so supremely talented and it shows in her culinary creations – I am beyond honored to be a guest at her place today!

Please go visit Lora and my mandarin orange fudge recipe!

When I first saw this pic I thought you’d made a fudge version of Jell-O shots. You know the ones I’m talking about that people set in peels?


4 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 8:56 pm

that IS what I did, Laura!! no booze, but… yep, everything else is the same! 😀


5 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table December 9, 2012 at 9:16 pm

I mean, I thought it was like Kahula jell-o! Fudge is also fabulous though. :)


6 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 9:18 pm

ooooh, now THERE’S an idea… 😉

Ohh this is SUCH a fun idea for the holidays, I love it!

PS I love how joyful everyone is around the holidays, especially all the fun celebrations with friends (who are like family anyway, am I right?), such a festive spirit, makes me smile :)

10 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 8:55 pm

and so are YOU! 😀 thank you, Kate, glad you like them!


11 Caroline December 7, 2012 at 6:41 am

This is lovely, dear. I don’t know if I have the skill for the shells, but the fudge will be made!


12 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 8:55 pm

these are very easy, Caroline, I know you could make them! the fudge tastes just as good without the orange peels, however… 😉 enjoy!


13 Nichole December 7, 2012 at 7:10 am

I can’t even a peel an orange without it going everywhere. And look, you’ve stuffed them:)


14 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 8:53 pm

yep! you know how I do


15 Purely Twins December 7, 2012 at 11:40 am

can you believe it but I do not really like chocolate and orange together. but your presentation sure makes me question it


16 Kristina Sloggett December 9, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I believe it – I haven’t always had an appreciation for it, either – but I love it now! :)


17 Heather (Where's the Beach) December 7, 2012 at 4:59 pm
