Over the weekend we celebrated our sweet little Piper turning one!

I can’t believe that she is already one.  (If you want to read her crazy birth story you can find it HERE.)  Since we tried to get pregnant so hard with our other three kids, but Piper just kind of burst into our lives with joy and love . . . I affectionately refer to her as our Cherry On Top.

So we had a Cherry On Top birthday party!  I have three kids now, and a blog that has become a full time job . . . so yeah, I didn’t go all Rainbow Party on this one.  We did have an ice cream bar (you know, with cherries for on top) and Cherry Sangria (I made a double batch and it still wasn’t enough).

And as a party favor, we had Cherry Vanilla Bean Fudge!

Guys, I think I’m always going to give away fudge as a party favor from here on out.  First of all, I was able to give it out in these absolutely adorable cups that totally fit my theme.  (I also made a label for the top that I’m going to share with you later this week!)

Second of all, it is SO EASY.  I love making fudge because it is SO EASY.  You melt a bunch of stuff together, pour it into a square foil lined pan, wait for it to get hard, cut, and done.  And then you do it three more times because you want to make your party guests fat.  SO EASY.

You guys this fudge is crazy good.  You are going to love it.  Here’s the caveat.  You need to use these candied cherries.  You absolutely totally can use maraschino cherries, but if you do, you need to keep it refrigerated unless you are putting it in your mouth.  In the fridge and cold, totally fine.  Out for a few hours, mushy mess.  So, use candied cherries or proceed with caution.  The choice is yours.

Here’s my other caveat.  I haven’t tried making it without the vanilla bean paste.  I suspect that it will still be insanely delicious, so if you don’t want to drop the cash for the paste, I still think you can make it.  BUT!  Vanilla bean paste can be found at TJ Max and Marshall’s for like $6 a bottle when you are lucky.  #worthit

    Happy birthday to you sweet cherry. 🙂 This fudge looks amazing, Lisa.

    I love the easy white chocolate fudge too, ridiculously easy and oh so good. I love me a bit of vanilla paste too, love the flecks. You can make your own paste too. Have you dried the vanilla powder? That’s awesome too.
