The Joy of Fudge
The Joy of Fudge!! What is your favorite holiday gift to give? Year after year, my favorite is fudge. Soft, creamy, sweet, chocolatey, and sometimes with a crunch, fudge is a timeless and delicious holiday favorite. There’s classic fudge, simple fudge, microwave fudge, peanut butter-chocolate fudge, easy white fudge, easy chocolate fudge, and my personal favorite, butterscotch fudge. Fudge makes the perfect gift to bring to the hostess of any holiday party, the ideal treat to share at potlucks and office get-togethers, and a great way to remember to the neighbors. It’s always the right color, the right size, the right price, and it fits every menu. The perfect container to store and present this delicious confection is the cheerful holiday tin. This time of year, holiday tins are abundant and inexpensive . They come in several different sizes, a variety of holiday colors, and celebrate all denominations of holidays. These cute little devils line at least one store shelf at your local Target, Walmart, Kmart, grocery store, variety store, and dollar store, and are even available on Amazon! (I love Amazon!!) The Dollar Tree happens to be my favorite place to obtain these colorful metal treasures. And, get this! I can buy my favorite sizes at the reasonable price of two for a dollar! Why is the cost of these tins important to me? Because I make and give away about fifty pounds of fudge every year. Fifty pounds of fudge fills a lot of tins. The very best thing about this creamy confection is that everyone absolutely loves it, and none of it goes to waste. Seriously! How did I arrive at this very bold conclusion? Easy! You can tell fudge is a holiday favorite by how quickly it vanishes from a freshly opened tin. Just like magic! With Thanksgiving lurking just around the corner, the calendar is telling me it’s time to pull out my heavy sauce pan, line my cookie sheets with buttered foil, and buy all of the ingredients. So, how do I unwind after a busy weekend of creating candy? I park myself in front of the fireplace with a hot cup of coffee and the fudge scrapings from my sauce pan, of course! Happiest holidays to you and yours! Thank you for visiting my blog!
