Homemade Chocolate Fudge

Some people wouldn't classify fudge as candy.  I am definitely NOT one of them!  :)  


Chocolate fudge
happens to be one of my all time favorite luxuries, so I couldn't bear to leave it out. It has that melt in your mouth richness that you can savor with every bite.


There are quick and easy microwave fudge recipes as well as old fashioned slow cooking fudge creations that are assembled on the stove top. Both methods produce results that are hard to keep around, at least at my house.

Molded Chocolate Candy
