Perfect Holiday Gift for Anyone Left on Your Christmas List!

When I was a little girl, Christmas Eve was a BIG deal in my family and every year, my grandma's BFF would bring her fudge. I couldn't wait to have a piece, it was my second favorite part of the holiday. When she passed a while back, I couldn't get over my fudge addiction over the holidays. The recipe in the Wiki makes the closest thing to Smitty's fudge (I use all milk chocolate chips but, that's because I think it tastes better and I like a sweet fudge. If you don't then, feel free to use dark chocolate or semi-sweet chips):

                                                                             
                                                                               

Each time, I've made this recipe, it comes out the way fudge should- smooth, creamy, delicious. I've put crushed candy canes on top for a more festive look when giving it to people as gifts, but only once I've made sure they like mint! I've also used nuts, peanut butter or white chocolate chips, M&Ms, you name it....
                                                                          
I thought I'd share this with you, my fellow Lunchers, as I start to make my batches for this week. If you have any of those randoms (acquaintances, co-workers, boss, neighbors, host/esses, family get-togethers, etc) still on your list- feel free to bake them this much appreciated and delicious gift.

You can get a candy gift box at CVS for pretty cheap, wrap it in colored Reynolds Wrap and tie a nice ribbon on it or wrap it in parchment paper and then, wrap it in a beautiful, vintage fabric piece, newspapers, magazine, pages from an old book or play, music poster, copies of CD/LP covers, or anything else that has any special meaning for you and the recipient!

Homemade fudge is always a great gift to receive. This stuff is really rich though and is something I can only indulge in once or twice a year.

Me too! But, I do enjoy indulging from time to time and fudge is a great way to do it. It's also a good way, once you've had your fill, to give people a special treat.

Was never that big on fudge. I find it much too sweet for my taste.
