salted matcha + white chocolate fudge


we got our first snowfall yesterday!!!! i feel like lorelai gilmore, it made me so happy. sure, it already melted & the sun is back out.. but it was a glorious few hours of the fluffiest snowflakes. snow also means one thing: christmas is coming.

today's recipe is perfect to kick off the holiday season because nothing says the holidays like decadent fudge. i mean if you don't have fudge around the holidays, is it really the holidays? fudge is so sweet & creamy, i can't get enough of it! i love making large batches & packaging it all cute to give as edible gifts. while some fudge recipes can be quite tricky, this one is so easy. i like to call it magic fudge, because it comes together in seconds & you don't need a candy thermometer. this recipe mixes white chocolate & aiya america's matcha powder. as you know by now, this combination goes together like peanut butter & jelly. just try not to eat it all before you gift it! ah who cares, it's so easy just make some more.
