5 Minute Fudge Wreath - Rachael Ray

"I got this recipe watching the Oprah Winfrey show with Rachel Ray. This was a big hit with everyone!!! This is the recipe that everyone loves so much!! I have 2 other variations also listed, so that you can try them also. When I make this recipe I am not much of a measurer I get 2 small bags of chips and just pour both in. I will use chocolate, peanut butter, white chocolate, or butterscotch. I will use just one kind or mix them up. I found its easier and just as good!!!"

  • Grease a round cake pan to prevent it from sticking.
  • Place your wrapped can in the middle.
  • Pour your chips, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk in a pan.
  • Heat on low till it melts.
  • Add your raisins and walnuts stir till well blended. This will stick to your pan and burn if not stirred consistently.
  • Pour your fudge into the cake pan around the can making sure your can stays in the middle of your cake pan.
  • Allow the top to stay all bumpy.
  • Cut your green candied cherries in half and use the red and green cherries to make holly on the top of the fudge. You can also use the red and green M&M's for the holly. Use a pill splitter to cut the green M&M's in half for the leaves and the red ones I make sure you can see the 'M' on them.
  • Place in the fridge till it cools hard and take it out of the pan wrap in cellophane to give as a gift.

  1. Quick, easy, delicious!
  2. Another recipe for Pick a Chef 2006 -- I made this with fat-free condensed milk, because that's what I had in the pantry. I don't care for raisins, and I don't add nuts to things I'm bringing to work (allergies), so I improvised and added crushed reduced-fat oreos instead. I even crushed a few extra Oreos to sprinkle on the top. Very simple to make, and the variations you could use with the basic recipe are practically endless (different extracts and add-ins, or just different chip mixtures). This is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting!


I am no longer single. I found me an amazing man and we married, it has been almost 3 years now. My little girl is 13 now and she is amazing. I went to school and got my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and I work for the State as a Parole Officer now. I have realized that I hate cooking. I really do hate it. Luckily I married a man who loves to cook. He hates to bake, and I actually do like to bake. So I am what one would consider a somewhat mediocre baker. I still think about my Zaar Angel all the time. She knows who she is. I do enjoy to crochet, I do that a lot here lately. I use to do counted cross stitch, yet I don't do that anymore. I can't watch TV as well as I can while I crochet.
