There’s something about homemade fudge that feels like a special occasion treat. But why? It often uses ingredients you already have on hand, it’s a no-bake dessert, and there are even ways to make it in your microwave. That’s why we advocate homemade fudge all year round. Sure, it’s the perfect homemade Christmas food gift, but it can also be a delicious after-school snack or an after-dinner treat. Here are 20 delicious (and easy) fudge recipes you can make for any occasion.
Of course, we’ve included plenty of Christmas treat recipes like peppermint fudge, gingerbread fudge, and a swirling red and green fudge that your kids will eat right away.
