Day 5 of 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways (with Trillia Newbell)
“Five golden rings!” It is Day Five of my 12th annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! If you’re just joining in, be sure to start at Day 1 here.
I’m so happy to introduce you to today’s giveaway guest, Trillia Newbell. She is an author and speaker and also is the Director of Community Outreach for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention. I first got to know Trillia by following her on Twitter and I was grateful when she said yes to the invitation to join us in this Christmas series. Her great giveaway is based on her latest book Sacred Endurance: Finding Grace and Strength for a Lasting Faith. However, before we get to see what she is offering for the prize of the day, here is one of my favorite Christmas recipes.
Day 5: Fluffy Peanut-Butter Fudge
My family thinks it just can’t be Christmas without this creamy confection—fluffy, creamy peanut butter fudge. This recipe couldn’t be easier. For gift giving, scour second-hand stores for vintage Christmas tins or simply slice a large square of fudge, wrap tightly in foil, and embellish with a Christmas ribbon tied around it.
2 cups white sugar
½ cup whole milk
7 oz jar of marshmallow fluff
1 ? cups creamy peanut butter
¼ cup finely chopped, salted peanuts, for garnish
Generously butter an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
Stir together the milk and sugar in a medium-sized pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it begins to boil, stir continually, for exactly three minutes.
Immediately remove the pan from the stove. Stir in the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, combining well.
Spread fudge into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and press down slightly on them. Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Cover with foil and store in the refrigerator. When ready to eat or give as a gift, cut into squares with a sharp knife.

Sausage balls for sure!!
Not really. This year we are going to make my MIL’s stuffing balls though!
My mom’s caramel-peppermint popcorn is my must-have holiday treat! She added chunks of peppermint and white chocolate and another special ingredient (she refuses to share) and it’s the best! It’s not Christmas without my mom’s caramel-peppermint popcorn
My mom makes this candy called Christmas Crack! It seriously is so addicting! I have to have it every Christmas! We are military & we finally get to come home this Christmas & she’s making it for us! I can’t wait!
My moms dressing! It is my great grandmother’s recipe and since my mom is a nurse and has started working most Thanksgivings the past several years we now have it on Christmas! Oh and any and all Christmas cookies!
I hope this is not a duplicate….but I love a jello dish my mother used to make. It has pineapple, jello, marshmallows in it and you put it in a mold so it comes out like a wreath.
Sand tart cookies
My moms spritz cookies the best.
I would love to read Trillia’s book, “Sacred Endurance: Finding Grace and Strength for a Lasting Faith” It seems so appropriate for Today’s time. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
