5 Minute Fudge Wreath

This one is also courtesy of Rebecca in Ohio.

12 oz. bag semisweet chocolate chips
9 oz. butterscotch chips (I use less!)
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. can walnut halves or any nut (optional)
1/2 c. raisins (optional)
8-inch round cake pan, lightly greased with butter
Candied cherries, red and green, for garnish (optional)

Place a heavy pot on the stove and preheat it over low heat. Add chips and milk and stir until chips are melted and milk combined. Save the empty condensed milk can. Stir in vanilla and remove fudge from heat. Add nuts and raisins and stir in immediately. Cover empty condensed milk can with plastic wrap and center it in the greased cake pan. Spoon fudge into pan around can, making sure to re-center can if it drifts.The fudge will set-up almost immediately. Garnish can only be added in the first minute or 2 the fudge is in the pan so work quickly. Decorate your wreath with "holly" made from cut candied red and green cherries. A wreath left plan can be garnished with a pretty bow when serving. Chill covered in the refrigerator and slice fudge very thin when ready to serve. Very rich!!
