This is how it will look once it's "baked". Let it cool before removing it, carefully, from the parchment paper.

Now for the fudge wreath!

Grease your pan. Put your milk can {covered with plastic wrap} in the center of your pan. Pour your melted ingredients into the greased pan. Add garnishments, and let chill in the fridge.

I used the recipe found {HERE}. It turned out perfect!!

Once you’ve gotten your fudge wreath made and your peppermint platter baked, it’s time to package it up.

I wrapped ours in clear wrap, tied it with a pretty ribbon and attached a cute ornament. So cute and inexpensive. I believe my total cost for this was $5.50!!
