Do you want to participate in a cookie swap but don’t have the time to make several dozen cookies? Do you need a last minute gift for a teacher, hostess or neighbor?

Traditional fudge recipes call for the use of a candy thermometer to ensure the exact cooking temperature has been reached – otherwise you end up with either a gooey mess that you must eat with a spoon, or a brick that would cause your teeth to chip. This recipe includes common ingredients found in your kitchen and requires only 10 minutes to prepare, and it is absolutely delicious!

If you need to make a lot – don’t double the recipe – just make two batches to ensure the texture comes out perfect!

    These both look soon good…love them both. Do you have the recipe for the no bakes that doesn’t have the cocoa in it, instead it’s all peanut butter?

    I’m wondering about the amount of time – 2 and 1/2 minutes – at 9,500′ altitude. We normally boil things longer, as water boils here at about 198*. I also have to add about 20 minutes for water-bath canning. Any suggestions for this fudge recipe? Thanks!
