Apricot White Fudge
"This fudge has become a family favorite because of the luscious blending of flavors," notes Debbie Purdue of Freeland, Michigan. "I try to make it for gifts at Christmastime." Use a candy thermometer or the cold-water test to make sure the mixture reaches soft-ball stage; then chill until set.
