Simply Sweet: Not Your Ordinary Fudge Recipes!

If there’s one thing our entire family can agree on when it comes to the kitchen and food, it’s that fudge is delicious. Sure, we all have our flavour preferences, but there’s something so sweet and smooth about homemade fudge and so enjoyable about the process of making it that we’re all pretty pleased any time there’s time to make fudge. That’s why we’re always bookmarking new, creative recipes, just to make sure we have all different kinds to try and don’t have to repeat too often!
