#1. Choco-Orange Fudge
This is one of the holiday desserts that appealed to our senses. You only need:
* 2 ½ cups of chocolate chips
* A can of sweet condensed milk
* ½ chopped pecans ( optional)
* Orange zest
Simply melt the chocolate in the milk, stir until smooth, throw in the pecans and the orange zest and lay on a tray. Chill in the refrigerator and voila! A delicious holiday treat, made in less than 10 minutes.
#2. Candy Cane Peppermint Bark
We have a soft spot for chocolate, so another of our holiday desserts is made with chocolate! What you need:
* 2 lbs white chocolate
* 12 crushed candy canes
* 1 tbs. peppermint extract
Melt the chocolate, add the crushed candy canes and the peppermint extract and refrigerate. Easy and delicious!

This recipe is quick and easy, just like the rest of our holiday desserts ideas. Ingredients needed:
* 2 ½ cups vanilla wafers
