Sponsor Spotlight ~ Renee from Magnolia Days

Hi, all!

Today I’d like to introduce you to Renee from Magnolia Days. Renee isn’t just any blogger. Nope. She’s THE blogger, and she just so happens to be the author of one of my very favorite blogs and a fellow member of the #SundaySupper and #BundtAMonth group.

Renee’s the sweetest person you’ll ever meet, and she’s always willing to lend a helping hand. Not only is Renee a wonderful person, but she’s a wonderful cook, baker, and gardener. I’m constantly stalking Renee’s site for new recipes. Some of my favorite recipes include her black cobbler cocktail (cobbler in liquid form? I’m in), pumpkin pecan cake (you know how I feel about pumpkin), and her family recipe for minestrone soup (I can see myself taking down the entire pot).

I had a hard time deciding on a recipe to feature. I kept going back and forth between her spinach salad with warm bacon dressing and her rocky road fudge. Hmm, bacon or chocolate? Decisions, decisions!

Chocolate won!

 

Renee made this fudge for our “Gifts from the Kitchen” themed #SundaySupper a few weeks ago, and I instantly fell in love with it the moment I saw those rich chocolate squares studded with fluffy marshmallows and salty peanuts. Yum!

I loved this recipe so much that I decided to make a few batches to give as Christmas gifts this year.

I purchased some white candy boxes from my local cake/candy store to package them in and wrapped the box in a red bow. They’re the perfect gift of friends, family, teachers, and co-workers.

I’m labeling the boxes “Renee’s Rocky Road Fudge.” I have a feeling there will be a line at my door for more fudge.
