Hot Chocolate Hits
One of the go-to flavors of the holiday season is, without a doubt, peppermint. This double hot chocolate peppermint fudge captures that delicious taste with the added bonus of rich cocoa. Best of all, this is a no-bake recipe, so it’s as simple as it is delicious.

Peanut butter and chocolate, sure. This classic combo will always hold a special place in our hearts. But what about peanut butter and Nutella, swirled into a mind-blowing fudge? Well…turns out we have some room for a new favorite, too…
Break out of the fudge mold and gift someone a really creative recipe, like this pecan buttermilk fudge. The buttermilk is sure to make this the creamiest fudge you’ve ever tasted, the pecans add just the right amount of crunch, and the white chocolate flavor is divine.
Lemon & Mocha
At the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with going for classic, chocolate fudge. But if you’re going to go with and old favorite, upgrade it with this super smooth recipe.
There’s a lot going on here. This sweet white chocolate fudge is filled with exquisite Macadamia nuts and finished off with thick coconut shavings. It’s a pretty nutty concoction, but it just might work.
Spoonful of Flavor
For a great juxtaposition of flavors and textures, cranberries are a great ingredient to add. Their subtle sourness, plus their chewy consistency, makes for a really surprising twist in an otherwise ordinary fudge.
