My favorite kind of cake, red velvet, inspired me to create this fudge. If you like, spoon the candy mixture into paper-lined mini muffin cups instead of spreading it in a pan.—Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado
These easy-to-make mint candies are perfect for any occasion throughout the year. Simply tint the dough the appropriate color. Friends and family will gobble these up in a jiffy! —Mrs. William Yoder, Bloomfield, Iowa
My grandchildren savor the job of taste-testing my baking experiments. I combined two recipes to come up with this yummy fudge dotted with crisp toffee bits. The kids gave it a "thumbs-up" before requesting a batch to take home.
During the holiday season a few years back, my husband brought this wonderful candy home from work. The co-worker who'd shared it graciously included the recipe...and I've been making it ever since!
Besides being perfect for family munching, this creamy, "Christmasy" candy is dandy for holiday craft shows and gift giving.
Each Christmas I teach myself a new candy recipe. Last year I started with my caramel recipe and added a splash of orange extract for fun. This year I just might try buttered rum extract. —Shelly Bevington-Fisher, Hermiston, Oregon
