  1. My kids simply love fudge. Peanut butter fudge, chocolate fudge and even caramel fudge once in a while. Although, peanut butter fudge is their favorite, they're very open in fudge recipe twists. I think pumpkin fudge will really get them going. I will surely give this a go. Lovely colors indeed!

  2. Absolutely amazing! I have never made fudge before and this turned out beautifully. I followed the directions exactly, and it was perfect. This will definitely be one that stays in my recipe box!
