Best Posts of 2016

As 2016 comes to a close I thought I would look back over the recipes I have posted over the past 12 months. 2016 seems to have gone by in a flash, but once I was looking back some of these posts feel like they were ages ago! Then I started adding them up- 47 posts in 2016. Wow- hard to believe there were that many when some weeks time was flying so fast I hadn’t posted anything at all.

This fudge recipe is simply the easiest creamiest fudge recipe out there. I have been making this recipe for years now after receiving the recipe from a co-worker about 10 years ago. What makes this ¬†Easy Creamy Fudge recipe almost fool-proof is that you make it in the microwave and there is no candy thermometer required! After trying multiple brown-sugar fudge recipes I still come back to this one. Now some folks will see the white chocolate in the list of ingredients and think it won’t taste like a brown-sugar fudge, but they would be wrong.
