Use this huge variety of fudge recipes to find just the right variety to make for your next food gift.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, you know that fudge is a fabulous gift to give at Christmastime (and even better to receive)!
I love giving tins of cookies, bark candy, and fudge to friends and neighbors around the holidays. And while this idea makes an excellent holiday gift, fudge is special in that you can easily gift it any time of the year.
But, if you’re a little bored with the same old fudge recipe you’ve been using for years, take these fudge recipes out for a spin! From smooth and chocolatey to chunky or fruity, you’ll find something to suit every palate.
