"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."
