Ahhh, Christmas is in the air. The smell of pine trees, peppermint and holiday baking. What? You don’t smell holiday baking? You say you don’t have time? Then let the Redhead bake for you!
This week I agreed to taste test Jen’s Christmas cookies, bourbon balls and fudge. I was the most excited about the bourbon balls, since I haven’t had this delectable treat since college.
Yesterday the package arrived. With great anticipation I snuggled up on the couch and opened my loot. And there they were. Two delectable bourbon balls calling my name. I took a bite, let the chocolate melt in my mouth and then waited. And there is was. Smooth, almost fruity tasting bourbon. FANTASTIC.
And the cookies? I can’t tell you how they were because my daughter saw HER name on those. But the sound of her crunching intermingled with mmmMMMmmmMMMMM led me to believe they were great.
The big surprise was the fudge. I had not expected it in the sample box and had left it for last. But don’t they say to save the best for last? In this case, I certainly did.
This fudge is hearty, to say the least. It is a rich, dense and heavy chocolate with nuts intermingled among the velvety goodness. Honestly, it is probably the best fudge I’ve ever had. This is “hide the fudge from everyone else and then grab a glass of milk and sneak in the car with it while everyone is asleep” fudge.
So, no time for holiday baking? Let Jen do the work for you. You can order any of these fabulous treats just in time for Christmas. And shhhh…. don’t tell anyone you didn’t make them yourself. It’s our secret!
