Last year the holidays were crazy busy here... honestly, it seems like EVERY year is crazy busy at the holidays.  Entertaining is something I love to do, but I want to keep my holiday recipes simple and delicious so I don't stress out in the kitchen all month.  So this year I decided months ago to make sure that I focus on what is really important this holiday season. This Christmas I want to really slow down and ENJOY it with our boys.  We hosted a super fun Christmas Party with the kids and their friends this weekend and it was SO much fun! 

I mean, look at this face!  THIS is what this holiday season is about to me.


Clapping and cheering for a fun Christmas party with a few special friends! 


When all of a sudden he spotted the FUDGE!!  


I loved making this Nestle Carnation Fudge from a kit because it was delicious and super easy. Everything you need for a batch of fudge- over a pound and a half!- is included in this box.  It is seriously the easiest fudge I've ever made because everything is already measured out and ready to be made into this amazing fudge!


I just crushed up regular peppermint candy canes and Wonka Sweetart Candy Canes for the toppings.



The kids all went crazy for the Wonka Sweetart Fudge- super chocolate-y flavor with a hint of fruity flavor from the fruit flavored candy canes. 


In fact, the Wonka Sweetart Candy Canes were a hit at our party in general!  The kids all loved them.


They were also an adorable decoration in this fun Santa basket with a printable sign I made.  With three fun flavors, all of the kids loved choosing their own candy cane.  I LOVE the Tart Cherry myself! 


To stay with my theme of SIMPLER this holiday season, I ordered pizza and wings, and served fresh veggies and fruit, along with some crackers and peppermint pretzels.  The Carnation Famous Fudge and the Wonka Sweetart Candy Canes were the dessert.

The party was mostly centered in our Sun Room, where the kids all decorated their own Graham Cracker Houses {which was SO much fun and I'll have tons more details about that in a separate post tomorrow}.  



We served the food and had a Hot Chocolate Station set up in the kitchen.


Our little guy loved his hot chocolate crushed with Wonka Sweetart Candy Canes.  The flavors are Blue Punch, Green Apple and Cherry.  Our kids go crazy for all of them!


It was such a fun afternoon of graham cracker house decorating, lunch, and delicious easy desserts thanks to Nestle Carnation Fudge Kit and Sweetart Wonka Candy Canes.  It was wonderful to relax and not stress out, and still have a super fun, festive Christmas Party for the kids!


Looking to host your own little Christmas Party?  Enjoy the simplicity and deliciousness of Nestle's Carnation Famous Fudge Kit and Wonka Sweetart Candy Canes- both available at Walmart.  The Fudge Kit is located in a center aisle filled with holiday baking items and the candy canes are located in the seasonal aisle.


Nestle Carnation Famous Fudge Kit is also a great gift to give your family and friends.  I loved having a simple, relaxing party with fun friends and I thanked them for coming by giving them a Famous Fudge Kit to bring home.


Happy {Simpler} Holiday Hosting to you!! xoxo
