Easy Home-made Fudge Recipe: The Gift Everyone Loves

Easy Home-made Fudge Recipe: The Gift Everyone Loves

As Christmas approaches, I usually find myself getting more and more anxious about gift-giving.  What should I give my child’s teacher?  What about my special neighbor or my son’s karate coach?  

I want to give them each something special but I don’t want to be sent to the poor house when I’m done.  I also don’t want to run myself ragged making a million home-made things.

A few years ago, I stumbled upon this easy home-made fudge recipe and I’ve been happily giving it to those special people ever since.  It’s a huge hit every. single. time.

This recipe is EASY and it is seriously GOOD!

You won’t need a candy thermometer and you don’t have to be a baking guru to make this recipe a success!

Did I mention that it was EASY?!

If you’re making it for a lot of people, you can easily double the recipe.  Be sure to use a large sauce pan and a 9 x 13 pan.   Doubling the recipe will make A LOT of fudge!  

Also, after making it several times, I have decided that I personally like it better when I use all milk chocolate chips instead of adding some semi-sweet to the mixture.  I also use a higher quality chocolate chip — like Ghiradelli — to get a better flavor.

Y’all…I love this recipe!!

Ready for the best part (besides eating it!)?  It takes less than 30 minutes to make. 

If you’re struggling with gift ideas, this is a quick and easy home-made gift that everyone is sure to love!

  3. I was hoping to locate your recipe for Fudge but I couldn’t seem it find it. Please advise where I can find it at. Also, do you have any examples of how you package the fudge gifts to show me.

    I sure would appreciate it.

    Thank you and have a good day….
