My family loves sweets during the holidays. Actually, we love them all year round! There are certain sweets that we make only once a year during the Christmas holidays though. These  sweets are  not only enjoyed at our house. We always make enough to give to others who also love sweets. This year we decided to make my Aunt Sue’s Pounds of Wonderful Fudge recipe.

our experience making fudge

If we need to prepare a fudge ahead of time due to event-filled days close to Christmas, we wrap it in a single layer of fudge in foil and place it in the freezer. It could be taken out when we needed it and given as gifts. We have found that fudge placed in the freezer tends to remain safe from the sweet teeth at my house and ends up as a wonderful gift for someone else.
