For festive fudge with a new "twist," give this confection a whirl! We used vanilla chips instead of chocolate ones and added sweet cherry flavoring. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"The taste was wonderful. The flavours went well together and my family loved these for Valentine's day especially. I take these to summer parties as well"

"This was a nice change in flavor for fudge. But I think 2 pkgs of kool-aid are to much. I will make it again and try using one package."

"These were so delicious! We made them for a bake sale and they were very pretty. They are super easy to make. I used the almond extract and the taste was great. I also sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top and gently pressed them down in a little and I think it was a really nice addition!"

"I teach home ec to all of the 8th graders in my school and for a fun treat for Christmas, I had the class do this fudge. They were excited at how pretty it turned out and how good it tasted."
