I did it! I made homemade fudge for the first time, and even better yet, it is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! If you remember, making homemade fudge this holiday season was one of my December goals.
The recipe I used was one I got from one of the ladies in the Senior’s Exercise Class that I teach every Thursday morning at church. She said it’s incredibly rich and delicious, but isn’t too difficult to make. Sounded perfect to me!

Since I love fudge way too much to keep it in our house for longer than a day, I decided to make a bunch to give away to friends and co-workers. I guess it’s a good thing it turned out well otherwise we might’ve not been giving away any treats this year! ;) Of course I kept a couple pieces for Cody and me to enjoy, but the rest got packaged up to go out to others.
It was a pretty easy recipe to make, and I loved the taste and texture of it. If you’re looking for an easy and delicious fudge recipe, this is it! Have a wonderful Sunday! Off to church I go!
