Chocolate Walnut Fudge Bites

I reminisce on the Christmases of my childhood quite often. It’s a little corner of my mind that feels so warm and beautiful. I love revisiting those special memories.

Whenever I think of Christmas Eve, I see one of my mom’s old plates covered in a pyramid of her homemade fudge. Fudge was a staple at our holiday gatherings and few desserts signal the season like that particular chocolatey treat.

Because I like to keep things as uncomplicated as possible, I was overjoyed when I found these incredibly simple but decadent holiday fudge bites at JELL-O’s website.

I didn’t have the holiday sprinkles on hand, but I did have some walnuts, so I changed-up the recipe a bit and made my own version—chocolate walnut fudge bites.

I know that I throw the word easy around a lot when talking about recipes, but trust me when I say that these chocolate walnut fudge bites are so simple they’re practically no-fail.

The recipe features BAKER’S White and Semi-Sweet Chocolate, and a crowd favorite in my home, JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding.

I’m sure you’re wondering how this fudge tastes, right?
