Sugar Plum Bars

I am so honored to have had the opportunity to create the "Holiday Bakeshop" recipe collection for the Decemeber/January 2013 issue of Family Fun magazine. I have had my work published in the magazine multiple times, but when I was approached about doing the entire holiday feature this year, I was beyond thrilled. It was especially fun to see my work recreated in the photos in the magazine and always so exciting to see my name published!

This recipe is so quick and so simple. The semisweet fudge base has only 2 main ingredients, chocolate and a can of sweetened condensed milk. I like to add a little butter, salt and vanilla for extra flavor but it can also be made with out them for a 2 ingredient fudge!
