Folks, I just threw a heckuva party.

Adam Sandler wasn’t kidding when he called Chanukah “eight crazy nights.” And last night, I had all of our relatives (and believe me, there are a ton of them) over for our annual family party. And it was so much fun. But I think I’m going to be recovering for at least a week.

For one thing, children were literally pouring out of every floorboard in my house. When did I get so lucky?

Day Three! Day Three! Fudge Week is drawing to a close. I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have. It’s been quite an honor to pair up with Gayle. Check out her fudge recipe today!

This final offering is made with white chocolate (yep, I’ve done milk and dark already this week) and it’s soft and perfectly fudgy. To be honest, I wanted to use Chanukah colors for this fudge, but guess what? Oreo doesn’t make a Chanukah variety, and Nestle doesn’t do blue chips. I had to keep the colors to Christmas. That’s okay!
