Easy Mulled Wine + My Grandmothers Christmas Fudge Recipe

Hi Friends! Its FINALLY Friday and this little mamma couldn’t be happier. Only a few more sleeps until Christmas is in full swing. I am so excited. Beckett is so much more fun this year, last year he loved the wrapping paper more than anything. This year he knows who Santa is and obviously loves toys. It is so amazing to see the magic in his eyes during this time. It gives me all the Christmas feels. Today we are talking mulled wine and fudge. My favorite holiday drink and my grandmothers fudge recipe. It is so beyond yum and it is just NOT Christmas without it. Do you guys have a favorite holiday recipe that your family makes every year? Share with me below in the comments as I am always looking for new recipes. Enjoy this Easy Mulled Wine + My Grandmothers Christmas Fudge Recipe.img_2549 Have you guys made mulled wine before? It is so yum and I love it because it gets me in the holiday spirit and makes the house smell amazing. You can buy mulling spices from World Market or from William Sonoma. You can also make your own, I have tagged a recipe here. I have found that it is a lot more work to make yourself when you can just buy the same spices all ready to go.

All you have to do is get a large pot, add 1 bottle of red wine. Menage a Trois is my absolute favorite which you can also get at World Market. Add about 3 tablespoons of mulling spices to the wine followed by a 1/3 cup of sugar (you can adjust this depending on how sweet you like it). Simmer for about 15 minutes. Serve in a cute mug with a few cinnamon sticks. If you are feeling extra festive you can add orange slices and fresh cranberries. Serve and ENJOYimg_2552You can also use mulling spices to make:
