Do any of you make fudge? I always associate this thick, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth candy with the holiday season, but it's actually been years since I've had any. Time to revive the tradition! Fudge can be as finicky or as easy-peasy as you like it. Traditional recipes require candy thermometers and include instructions for cooling the fudge on marble slabs. But the ones that take a few shortcuts are very often just as good. I also love how endlessly adaptable fudge can be. You can take a basic recipe, like chocolate or vanilla fudge, and mix in whatever extras you have around. Pretzels, candy bits, nuts, dried fruits, and the contents of your spice drawer are all fair game here. Here are some recipes to inspire your holiday fudge-making: • Simple Chocolate Fudge from Martha StewartVanilla Cream Fudge from SaveurMaple Pecan Fudge from Leite's CulinariaBittersweet Chocolate and Walnut Fudge from Bon AppétitCoconut Milk Fudge from Smitten KitchenMocha Almond Fudge from Sunset Magazine/MyRecipesRocky Road Fudge from Fine CookingPeanut Butter Fudge from Bakerella What's your favorite kind of fudge?
