12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 - The Perfect Fudge

I am going to let you in on a little secret. I'm a TERRIBLE baker and a below average cook. I'm borderline a safety risk in the kitchen! I only enjoy making appetizers and a few other secret recipes. One of those secret recipes is my almost famous fudge! It could not be easier and it is so rich and delicious. I love giving away this sweet treat to friends and family over the holidays as a little gift.


 

Here are the recipes for my favourite flavours
