With the holidays approaching, I have to be honest with you all: I cannot stop looking at all the delicious Christmas recipes out there! I love food, thatโ€™s no secret, and though I eat very healthy, I also enjoy finding new not-so-healthy recipes to make as gifts, or to recreate in a healthy way. Recently, I was looking over some pretty quirky takes on Christmas recipes, and this got me thinking that perhaps, sometimes the most traditional recipes are the best. Sure, it doesnโ€™t hurt to make something healthier or try something new, but when it comes to certain Christmas recipes, sometimes the oldies really are the goodies! So, Iโ€™ve collected 9 of my favorite classic Christmas recipes I think every woman needs to know. Whether you eat them or not, they make great dishes to share with others, take to a party or serve to your hearty eaters in the family. I hope you enjoy and do be sure to share any links to recipes you make every year as well!

Serves: 16 squares of 1 inch pieces of fudge

1 14 ounce of fat free sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 1/2 cups regular, dark, or dairy-free chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

5 candy canes

Directions:

Prepare an 8โ€ณ square pan by covering with non-stick aluminum foil. Set aside.Over a double boiler on simmer, heat the the condensed milk and coconut oil together until the oil is melted. Mix in the extracts until combined. Place the candy canes in a gallon sized plastic bag and crush with a cup or something hard until the candy canes are in bit sized pieces. You could also use a high powered food processor here. Pour into a strainer to sift out the tiny flakes of peppermint. Sprinkle the crushed candy canes (about 1/2 cup) on top of the fudge. Place in the fridge to chill and set for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares.
