I can go for long periods of time without craving fudge. Don’t get me wrong I do have a sweet tooth but it can usually be curbed with a small piece of candy or a cookie. However, when the holidays are here I can only think of one yummy thing, no not turkey & dressing, you guessed it – fudge.
Not just any fudge will do for the holidays, nope, I want the yummy marshmallow creme fudge. I make it by the batch many times and share with my friends and family. I bag it, box it and make decorated sacks full. I even put it out on a glass platter and drizzle green and red icing on it for a festive look.
I think my craving for fudge comes from my younger days when my dad would make his peanut butter fudge. He is no longer able to make it and I tried and tried to duplicate it and failed, but I have super luck making Fantasy Fudge.
Try some, you will be as hooked as I am!
