10 Fabulous Fudge Recipes
Midwest Living Senior Travel Editor Kendra Williams shared this Easy Fudge recipe; her grandparents made it every year, and it's just not Christmas without it.
Set this pretty golden fudge on a plate with traditional chocolate fudge and a white fudge for an appealing array of colors. The recipe is from a Cherokee, Iowa, reader and was a winner at the Clay County Fair.
White Christmas Cherry-Almond Fudge
Fudge in any flavor makes a classic holiday treat, but our white fudge dotted with dried cherries and toasted almonds looks especially festive. The recipe comes from the Inn at Cedar Falls near Logan, Ohio.
A shot of espresso adds flavor and color to this holiday sweet. The recipe makes about five dozen pieces, so you'll have plenty to give as gifts.
Creamy Rich Pistachio-Tangerine Fudge
When we decided to create a new holiday fudge, we started with a no-fail version and added tangerine peel, pistachios and white baking pieces. Yum!
Peanut Butter Fudge
Peanut butter fans will love this creamy, nutty fudge, made with peanut butter pieces, marshmallow creme and finely chopped peanuts. Add extra peanuts on top if you want some more crunch.
Fanciful Peppermint Fudge
Mint flavor infuses this creamy, easy fudge. If you like, use two cups mint-flavor semisweet chocolate pieces instead of the chocolate pieces and extract.
Cream Cheese-Rum Fudge
Cream cheese flavors these chocolaty squares, a favorite recipe from a Dubuque, Iowa, reader. If you'd prefer, try substituting almond, peppermint or orange extract for the rum flavoring.
Candied Cherry Opera Fudge
No shortcuts on this fudge, studded with chopped candied red cherries — you've got to follow classic fudge instructions to cook it to "soft ball stage" and then to beat vigorously. Make sure you've got an accurate candy thermometer!
