Now that Christmas has come and gone, I should probably finish my last installment of Christmas candies. Although, who am I kidding? Candy is perfect any time of the year. However, I specifically made this recipe for my family for Christmas. I have made it a few times, and it’s always been a hit. It’s another salty and sweet combination, and we all know how much I love salty and sweet.
I have always been a fan of the “old fashioned” Christmas candies. This love comes from many years of enjoying candies as a kid and making them as an adult. There is one type of old fashioned candy I love to make above all others: fudge. I have been making fudge since I was in high school. I have made this particular recipe countless times, and I will say it is my most requested recipe by my family every Christmas.
Would you like to know what one of my favorite seasons is? Fudge season. I make fudge once a year, and it’s that time. Every Christmas I make my beloved chocolate fudge for my in-laws and my immediate family. Fudge is one confection that I love making, and I am fairly good at it. This year, I wanted to try a new fudge recipe. I am making confections for my employees, so I wanted to make something a little different: peanut butter fudge.
