  1. I’m having trouble leaving a comment – hopefully this won’t show up three times! My husband would love the classic one. I thought the butterscotch would be my fave, until I got to the coffee fudge!

  2. My husband loves fudge. He’d love the classic one. Me? I thought the butterscotch would be my fave, until I got to the coffee fudge!

  3. Wow, these all look pretty amazing, but the best part is, they’re simple to make. I love recipes that are tasty and only have a few ingredients. Easy peasy. I’m definately going to have to try thre butterscotch ones. Thank you for finding these four us. Are you going to make any of them?

    1. Will have to see if I have time. Already ordered my groceries for this week and got them on Monday. Since I’m in the ankle cam boot, I can’t just run out for this and that from the store.

  4. I have never made fudge! I was thinking about making some this year and now I can using one of these recipes. I hope that you are staying safe and are getting excited for the move. I am so excited for you to be in a place with kind neighbors and people who care about the facility.

  5. Thanks for sharing this and reminding me …I usually make the easy 3 ingredient one if I make any….it all looks great. Have a Merry Christmas.

    1. I may have to break down and do that one and get supplies when I order from the grocery store next week. I can’t stand up long due to my ankle, so I’ve been focusing on making meals.

  6. Thank you for the recipes! I am going to make peppermint fudge, which I have never made before. I make the easy fudge except my recipe (off the Eagle Sweetened condensed milk can) has no butter in it. I think I will try it with butter and that should make it even smoother. I also make peanut butter fudge every Christmas, although my recipe is a little different with marshmallow creme in it. Yum! I will have to make it and hurry and give away most of it or I will eat too much of it! Merry Christmas to you and the kitties!

  7. Great fudge recipes Brenda.
    Specialty stores sell fudge at incredible prices. Often I would buy 2 or 3 pieces. It gets stale quickly. Maybe I’ll make a few 1/2 batches. Give to neighbors for gifts. Keeping it around is a big no!!!! I will eat it. Great treat with amytime cup of coffee!!
    Thanks ❤ for sharing Brenda.
    P. S. Your soon-to-be apartment move, is getting really exciting!!!
    We are all anxious to see your new place. 🏡

  8. Wow! I realized as I was reading through the suggestions that I’ve never made fudge – ever! It sounds so easy, I’ve got to try it. The fudge with the coffee in it sounds like a winner.
