Most fudge lovers will also enjoy chocolate mint fudge recipes for a little different twist.
I truly am one of the original lovers of fudge. I enjoy all different flavors. The smooth, creamy taste gets me every time.
Unfortunately, I have a tendency to overindulge (oops!), and then I have to get strict with myself and deny myself the pleasure.
Here are some of my favorite places to order delicious mouthwatering fudge.
Never fear, you can make your own...
The delightful bite of mint makes these mint chocolate fudge recipes cool, refreshing, and delicious. I hope you like them.
