Christmas is right around the corner, which means our kitchen is filled with yummy projects. Our children like to get right into the mess (and do lots of taste-testing) this time of year! This simple fudge recipe tastes delicious, and is easy for children to make. Our six year old was so pleased with his Christmas fudge cutouts he brought them to a party the day after we made them. Package them up in a small box or tin and they make great from-the-kids gifts too!
